Behind the Black Curtain: 10 Secrets for Producing Your Best Hybrid Event

Register now for the live webcast | Tuesday, Feb 21 at 11:00 a.m. Central 

When you hear “hybrid event” you might think the key to success is what happens online – the speakers, streaming video, social media and the like.

But the world’s best event producers know different. The most successful hybrid events begin months before registration opens, and most of the magic happens on site, behind the black curtain. Wish you could get a sneak peek at what works? Then Tahira Endean is about to make your day.

She’ll show her work from recent conferences like Event Camp Vancouver, and answer your pressing questions, including:

  • How do you build timelines for hybrid event planning, and for the hybrid event itself?
  • What is the best way to choose trusted partners, and get them to collaborate before, during and after the event?
  • Are there shortcuts for choosing the right hybrid event technology?
  • Where is the best place to station the technology table? And how many should you have?
  • Who does what job, on site and online, during a hybrid event?

Presenter: Tahira Endean, CPM is the Director of Creative and Production at Cantrav Services in Vancouver. 

Moderator: Erica St. Angel, Vice President of Marketing for Sonic Foundry
