This webinar originally took place Oct. 6, 2021.

One of the main imperatives of any meeting program is to connect with and engage your audience, wherever they may be. In this webinar, hybrid event experts will share their tips for creating events that make an impact. They discuss the importance of defining your objectives, determining how much interaction you should encourage between on-site and at-home attendees, scheduling content for a varied audience, and extending the value of that content long after the programming ends. Presenters also took questions from the audience to help with specific challenges.
