HYBRID EVENTS AT THE ICC

Hosting your event at the ICC, whilst broadcasting it to audiences far and wide

The meetings and events world is evolving, and we’re evolving with it. As new working methods have become essential due to recent circumstances, we have enhanced our existing virtual event offering. This has already been developed on a bespoke basis to meet the needs of those events to reach increasingly virtual audiences over recent years and is – by its very nature – adaptable to the suit the individual event requirements. We understand the world of hybrid events can be daunting but the transition to virtual can be made seamless by our experienced teams.

Our Account Managers and Technical teams will work closely with you to create and develop your event, creating a digital experience for your desired platform that will complement your onsite event.

Hybrid Event Formats

We offer several different formats, all of which can be tailored to each Organiser's requirements:

Web Streaming

A one-way broadcast from a traditional conference to extend its reach to virtual audiences, a web stream can deliver content far and wide without any impact on the live conference format.

ICC Studio

Providing a professional setting using all of the creative and production capabilities of the venue but without a live audience, the Studio option enables your speakers to engage with your online audience in an environment that reflects your brand and brings your event to life.

Managed Webinar

Allows seamless collaboration and communication with attendees for highly interactive events whether the audience is present in a conference hall or attending virtually.

Virtual Event

This offers everything you would get in a large conference but accessible in a virtual setting. From live or pre-recorded presentations, to exhibitors and poster sessions, to polling, Q&As and chat functions, all elements of the event are covered.

Hybrid Event Benefits

Hybrid events can be an ideal solution when it is not possible or not desirable to meet in one place. At the ICC, we can extend our in-house production and event management capabilities into hybrid events so you can benefit from the level of quality and service delivery you’ve come to expect from the ICC without all attendees having to be physically present at the venue.

“No matter the event combination required, the ICC is a fantastic and well experienced venue for physical events, hybrids and live streaming. Their network infrastructure is without doubt the best we’ve worked with of anywhere in the world due to both its speed and ease of connection, providing us with a vital solution for hosting successful hybrid events.
