Hybrid events are the best choice for 2021. You are still able to address a large number of attendees – thus keeping your reach – and, at the same time, comply with social distancing rules which are currently necessary at the associated offline event.
However, to organise hybrid events, you need professional tools. They are already required at the registration step: two ticket categories often come with two ticket prices and two attendee groups. After purchasing/registering, the offline attendees need to receive an entry ticket, while the online attendees only need their credentials to sign in.
With the XING EventManager, you are now able to handle this seemingly complicated two-part design quickly and without any hassle. Within a few seconds, your event page is then ready to be advertised.
When setting up the event in the XING EventManager, choose right at the start if your event is an online, offline, or hybrid event. Directly specify the venue as well as a link to the online part of the event. Depending on your selection, we will automatically create the appropriate categories for the registration form or the ticket shop.
With one click and within a few seconds, your event page for your hybrid event is then ready.
To attend the event offline, your visitors will receive their tickets as usual, and to attend the event online, we will also send access codes. The EventManager recognises the respective platform and customises the emails accordingly.
If you need to change the format into a pure online event, that is also no problem. As soon as you have entered the link to the online event, visitors receive an automatic notification which includes the necessary credentials.
BTW: A XING event page helps you to lay the perfect marketing foundation for your hybrid event. Find the right attendees for your hybrid event today by increasing your reach, displaying ads that are targeted specifically at the desired attendees, viewing your event page visitors’ profile information, and creating re-targeting effects.
