Looking for the best hybrid event platforms of 2023? You have come to the right place. Choosing a platform can be difficult, with so many features to compare and costs ranging from free to 6 figures - hunting for the perfect platform for your event can cause a bit of a headache. We've put this guide together to make your life easy. You'll get a top level overview of what's out there and what might work for you and your budget. So...Let's get into it!

If the virtual landscape of the two-year lockdown taught businesses and event organisers anything, it’s that you can do just as many things online. Immersive events, included. Events have become more convenient and cost-effective, and hosting several events in a row requires less effort than your traditional affairs.

If the virtual landscape of the two-year lockdown taught businesses and event organisers anything, it’s that you can do just as many things online. Immersive events, included. Events have become more convenient and cost-effective, and hosting several events in a row requires less effort than your traditional affairs.

With society entering a re-awakening and in-person events becoming a hit once again, virtual events don't seem like it’s going anywhere. If anything, it’s become an established channel to host events in and not merely a substitute to the “real” one. 

But if you’re one to strike a happy medium between the conveniences of virtual events and the human touch you can only find in in-person events, hybrid events will serve you best. Which is why in this blog, we talk about what hybrid events are, how it benefits businesses, and what to look for in a good hybrid event platform. 

We also list the 12 Best Hybrid Event Platforms for 2023, to help you decide on the right event technology for your specific event needs and goals.

What are Hybrid Events?

A hybrid event is an event that accepts onsite seating and attendance while also offering a livestream for those at home or across the globe to watch. This event strategy is best suited for events with local and international audiences who want to enjoy the event’s activities according to their own level of convenience and access.

Corporate events can leverage hybrid events too and fill the gaps brought by organisations’ limited travel spend or their chosen venue’s limited seating capacity. Regardless of your demographic or logistical reason for choosing hybrid events, it’s sure to grant you more flexibility and event marketing opportunities.

Why Hybrid Events Are the Future

Just look at the numbers. The global virtual events market size was worth 94.04 billion dollars in 2020, and it will grow at a rate of 23.7% until 2028. With thoughtful planning and the right technology at our side, hybrid events have the potential for even better returns.

But to create memorable experiences for your audience, you need advanced event technology. And luckily, we have a plethora of these technologies available now, from one-way broadcast systems to immersive virtual realities. Choosing the right one allows you to fully reap its benefits such as:

  • Ability to attract a more diverse audience
  • Higher engagement
  • Power to accommodate thousands of attendees
  • Reduced training and operational costs, therefore higher ROI

And if these aren’t enticing enough, you can check out a previous blog where we talked about the 9 reasons you should be using a hybrid events platform. A little spoiler–new revenue opportunities is one of them.

What to Look For in a Hybrid Event Platform

What features to look for in  a hybrid event platform depends on the type of event you have and the goals you intend to achieve. However, as a rule of thumb, you need the following to create a remarkable experience for your audience.

1. Ticketing

Like in-person events, virtual events need a point of entry where attendees can buy tickets, register their names, and receive alert emails containing details of their booked event. All these are possible with a ticketing system that accompanies both physical and virtual portions of your event. 

2. Branding & Customisation

You need to be able to carry your branding into your virtual event, which means that one important feature to look for is the ability to customise your broadcast page, if not your entire virtual event ecosystem, with your logo and brand colours. 

3. Interaction Pods

There is less pressure to interact in virtual spaces which means that you have to evoke engagement in more creative ways. Live chats, polls, and Q&A widgets are great for this very purpose. See if your event technology provider offers these integrations. 

4. Networking Rooms

If part of your event’s promise to attendees is the opportunity to meet new people and possibly strike out a lifelong partnership, you’ll need a networking room. Networking rooms mimic social interactions that happen naturally in between physical events, giving attendees equal chances to grow their network.

The best part about hybrid events is that you get the best of both virtual and physical realities, maximising your reach, engagement, and revenue streams in the process. But what hybrid event platforms work best to pull off a one-of-its-kind event? 

5. Compatibility with your objectives

Select a system that is in step with your objectives for the event and is able to accommodate the kind of gathering you plan to organise (e.g. conference, workshop, trade show).

Look for a platform that is user-friendly and simple to manage, since this is important for those who are organising the event as well as the people who are attending it.

6. Scalability

When planning your event, you should think about using a platform that can accommodate a big number of people and manage significant volumes of traffic at the same time.

Choose a platform that not only enables you to personalise the overall look and feel of your event but also provides a variety of features and integrations that are tailored to meet your specific requirements. Customization is essential.

7. Security

Ensure that the platform you are using has sufficient security measures in place to safeguard the participants' privacy and personal information.

8. Customer support

When searching for a platform, look for one that has a customer support staff that is quick to respond and helpful. This team should be able to assist you with any problems that may happen while you are attending the event.

Communique banner

Communique Conferencing is a hybrid event platform that specialises in creating immersive virtual environments and engaging in-person experiences for mid-to-large enterprises. The platform integrates AI technology to build unique, personalised experiences for all stakeholders involved.

Both services come with a range of tools and features including dynamic data and analytics, email communication, and a ticketing system.

But the highlight must have to be the Communique mobile app–the place where in-person and virtual guests convene. Attendees can create their own profiles and join challenges to earn a spot in the leaderboard. They can also start conversations in their own activity feed and invite fellow attendees to chat one-on-one. If you’re looking to gamify your event and enhance peer-to-peer interaction, Communique is the way to go. 

As the name suggests, Communique Conferencing really does mean business. It’s specifically aimed at the enterprise-level conference market. This means there's a relatively hefty price tag attached to it which might put off some smaller businesses.

15. InEvent

InEvent describes themselves as an endgame for professional events and they very well may not be exaggerating. How often would you find an event platform that also manages flight itineraries and rooming details? 

InEvent suits incentive travel events best. The hybrid element only comes in when you gather attendees in a Virtual Lobby to network and interact with sponsors or when you hold simultaneous live and virtual sessions. 

The software also keeps its registration and check-in tools mobile so attendees only ever have to bring their phones with them. Marketing tools are built into the software too and are easily integrated with your favourite CRM.

“Hybrid” is a spectrum and you have control over how much or little the virtual (relative to the physical) plays a role in your event.

With InEvents, your options are limited but it does help add interest to any in-person conference. Not to mention, data collection is more feasible online than on-ground.

16. Webex (formerly Socio)

Webex is a true hybrid platform that’s found success in unifying virtual and in-person experiences. Seamlessness is not only true for presenters, it applies across the board from sponsors to attendees to, perhaps, non-attendees who are in it for on-demand content.

While it offers lots of flexibility, Webex did not slack in the streaming department. With or without a third-party platform, you can stream like a pro on TV. And if mixing live with pre-recorded videos is your way of keeping things fresh, Webex has built in tools for scheduling when content goes on air.

Overall, Webex is an excellent hybrid platform. The best part? It’s got a good history with creatively disruptive trade shows.

17. Eventdex

Eventdex boasts a one-stop platform to “manage, market, and monetize” hybrid events. Let’s look at the features that hold them up to their promise.

Firstly, Eventdex welcomes both in-person and remote attendees into the same event. They have a powerful conferencing platform to support this alongside a fuss-free registration system that attendees can access online. 

Otherwise, it’s entirely possible to lead each type of event attendee to events that are especially curated for them. As if that’s not enough, Eventdex makes room for no-shows to access  recorded content at a later time. It couldn’t get more hybrid than that!

Engagement also has a place in the platform with live Q&A and polling widgets that consolidate data from both audiences.

There aren't any features in Eventdex that you couldn’t find in another platform. What the platform can offer is a solid and simplified event planning experience. That in itself makes it worth adding to your tech stack.

18. Accelevents

Events are about community and Accelevents had not lost sight of that. Accelevents thought adding a virtual layer to face-to-face events might just be the key to expansive communities—a global one at that.

A host of connection-focused features caters to this vision. The platform has tailored networking, integrated chat rooms, and immersive widgets for Q&A and polling to in-session engagement. Although if you want to take networking to a personal level, there is an attendee directory to browse through and an instant meeting scheduler to lock in that lead.

Accelevents certainly sets you up for success with multiple ticket types and  enhanced exhibition spaces for sponsors; both which help you maximise revenue. We like the platform most because of its versatility for a large variety of uses.

Key info Price: $125-$1,250/month for unlimited events (billed annually)
Free Plan: None
Support: Email, live chat & phone
Best for Conferences, trade shows, product launches, fundraisers
Pros + Dedicated networking for live and virtual attendees
+ Meeting scheduler for 1:1 networking
+ Enhanced spaces for sponsors
+ Powers multiple simultaneous live streams
Cons - May be a little over the budget for smaller business events
Integrations Hubspot, Salesforce, Marketo, MailChimp, Slack, CVent, etc.

What Makes a Hybrid Event Successful?

  1. A thriving hybrid environment needs to deliver much more than just content.

    The most important thing to focus on is the type of content you create. So make sure you craft your presentations in such a way that viewers from both online and physical worlds enjoy a personalised event experience. If your event platform has integrated tools and resources exactly for this purpose, exhaust them and solicit feedback from your reports page. 
  2. Have a networking component to your event.

    The platform you select should offer live chat and messaging features, be that one-on-one or in groups. Not only does this grant virtual attendees the same opportunity to socialise as their in-person counterparts, it also serves as a space to facilitate productive discussions between virtual and in-person guests. 
  3. Let every event be a learning opportunity.

    Check your reports and analytics to determine your most sought-after content type and other relevant statistics. This should inform future hybrid event planning decisions and contribute to the perfection of your event hosting skill. 
  4. Don’t let the opportunity to build lasting communities slide.

    Keep a mailing list of your attendees and create appropriate segments for future marketing campaigns. Otherwise, invite attendees to a gated membership community where you can continuously delight them with exclusive content and discounted event tickets.
