Discover Hybrid Event Technology Benefits with Aventri
There are numerous advantages to being able to streamline business workflows using an integrated platform for your virtual, in-person, and hybrid events. The power, convenience, and cost-effectiveness of having one license, one log-in, and one support team ensures you have all the tools you need to plan, host, and manage your event from start to finish.
While virtual events can’t replace the dynamism of in-person ones, that doesn’t mean they can’t still be engaging. With a fully integrated virtual event management platform, it is much easier to streamline the process from start to finish, including event planning, marketing, hosting, and post-event follow-ups.
Kinura: supporting live stream, hybrid and virtual events since 2007
This article was written by Sarah Platt, Co-founder and Director of livestream production company Kinura. Sarah is a virtual event and livestream consultant with 20 years industry experience in digital media, events and broadcasting.
The hybrid event model isn’t new to us at Kinura. We’ve supported live stream, hybrid andvirtual events since 2007. But as we transition to digital events becoming the norm, and tech firms push the boundaries of what a virtual event ‘platform’ can or should do, how do you break through the hype and minimize stress and complexity? We think what’s really useful is to keep things simple and strip it back to thinking in broadcast terms. Allowing for tech rehearsals in the budget, carefully considering location & talent, the pace and dynamism of the show – none of this is anything new to a live TV crew. But pulling a hybrid event together with a short lead time and social distancing can be a challenge.
