Hybrid Events

The term ‘hybrid event’ is a relatively new phrase that has come to light since the easing of lockdown. However, at Bombora, we’ve been setting up, producing and live streaming hybrid events for over 10 years. 

We offer live filming services at the location of your choice and can livestream your event worldwide, allowing you to hold your physical event as well as reach an unlimited number of viewers online.

What are the benefits of hybrid events? 

Streaming your live event to an online audience can help you expand your audience globally in a cost-efficient way, helping you to reach participants who would otherwise be unable to attend. 

  • Increase engagement globally by inviting people to attend your live event virtually
  • Create a memorable physical live event for those that can attend
  • Create a virtual experience that makes your online audience feel part of the event and just as valuable as those physically attending

Our Process

Our producers will help you at every stage of the process, creating a bespoke hybrid event that is tailored to your business’s needs. We will propose and deliver a plan that ensures that your virtual audience will be just as engaged as your physical attendees. This may involve creating additional virtual experiences such as breakout rooms, networking, cocktail hours, or sending bespoke party packs. 

The set at your live event, designed by our creative team will be complemented by consistent branding and onscreen visuals for your virtual audience. The setup, technical logistics and filming will all be managed by our experienced team who will take care of the entire event production.
