Currently, many of our customers are choosing to go hybrid for their meetings and events. This allows for the greatest possible physical attendance, as well as offering the possibility for people to participate online. Savvy Congress offers a seamless collaboration between online and physical participants during a meeting or conference, both with weighted voting as well as presentations and discussions. This newsletter already touches upon the sustainable aspects of hybrid events, however there are even more benefits.
Less traveling and fewer people physically present at one location provides more safety for your employees. People can participate online in case of health issues or symptoms and pose no danger to other participants. You are also optimally prepared for any future changes in regulations from the government.
Due to the lack of travel time, it costs people less time to participate and the threshold of taking part is lowered. This means that an event such as a meeting or conference takes up less of your employees’ time, leaving them more time for regular activities. This offers a more efficient time-schedule and allows for more productivity within your team.
Travel costs are a substantial part of the costs of events. With the option of participating in a meeting or conference online, participants do not have to travel or stay overnight. This provides you as the organisation, a considerable cost reduction and saving on plane or train tickets, accommodation and car costs.
4. INCREASING YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE
The time and effort it takes to participate in the event is far smaller. This makes it more interesting for your target audience to participate. The attention and participation is greater, therefore increasing your target audience and as a result, your meeting or conference will have a bigger impact on a larger group of people.
The ticket sales of an event are usually only based on physical participation, however, you could for example, charge a smaller amount for the online participation of the event. This not only increases the number of participants but also your turnover for the entire event.
