The biggest challenge in hybrid events is making both in-person and remote online participants feel actively engaged. Download our Hybrid Events Ebook to discover four crucial elements for success.

Employees have always physically worked together. As companies grew, they established multiple locations and relied on in-person meetings to keep workers connected to one another and the company. Then the pandemic hit.

Video conferencing already existed for corporate meetings, but what about events? We developed over 50 virtual team events to satisfy corporate America’s need to stay connected during the pandemic. Now, what about remote employees? How can you have a live event that also includes your remote workers?

The answer is HYBRID TEAM EVENTS.

Our Hybrid Events engage both in-person event attendees and a remote audience in a fun and cohesive experience. BEST uses powerful, proprietary, event applications to deliver hybrid events which optimize a shared experience that both in-person and virtual attendees find engaging and valuable.

Engagement

Remote participants not only see and hear the action at the live event, but they can also engage with their teammates onsite using our event apps to answer trivia and score points the team needs to advance through the program.

Global Delivery

Hybrid events allow teams in multiple office locations across the country and around the world to gather in a meaningful way without the expense of travel for attendees.

HYBRID BIKE BUILD DONATION

Best Corporate Events Hybrid programming uses our sister company SmartHunts®’ event apps, which feature exciting new Zoom® integration. We use these proprietary event apps to connect remote participants to their teammates at an in-person event, creating a live and interactive hybrid program.
This integration makes event facilitation more efficient because there is no need to connect individual zoom meetings on multiple iPads and manage breakout rooms to every iPad. Our facilitators send the remote and in-person team members into breakout rooms via our central control of the broadcast platform using the SmartHunts® App.
During the event, remote participants join their in-person teams via the ZOOM®/SmartHunts® App integration and play along using the App on their phones and Zoom® on their computers. In-person Teams have two iPads, one for playing the game, the other to see and interact with their remote teammates.

Cameras around the room are broadcasting the event to all remote participants, while they interact with their in-house team using their own mobile devices to gain points, solve clues, answer trivia, and competing in fun, team challenges.

        Goals and Outcomes

        What is a Keynote Speaker?

        Keynote Speaker is an often-misunderstood term associated with simply a motivational speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, etc. Most professional speakers are not actual trained Keynote Speakers, who are specialists, therefore in much lower supply, and in higher demand.

        Keynote Speakers are experienced, professional communicators who engage an audience, capturing the essence of a client’s meeting. They are able to highlight it to their audience while simultaneously delivering their own key concepts and proprietary content in an entertaining and impactful way. Most companies understand that this specialization is very much worth the time (around an hour) and the investment.

        In order to capture the perfect essence, a Keynote Speaker spends the necessary time researching a client’s industry, their issues, and their audience to craft a customized presentation into a unique and distinctive moment specifically for the client’s event.

        As a top Keynote Speaker, Tom Leu strategically uses compelling storytelling, humor, powerful visuals, audio and video clips, and audience participation elements to weave an impactful message into your event in a fun and memorable way. Tom can also pair his Keynote with Best Corporate Events programming, laying a foundation and setting a tone that best prepares participants for maximum engagement in the forthcoming team events that day.
