Continuing the trend for multi-platform events, the team at Assembly Rooms Edinburgh has seen an increase in demand for virtual events. In line with government guidelines and launching alongside a new user-friendly website, the venue has developed its hybrid events offering to bridge the gap between physical and online events.
Creating a safe and interactive experience for all by working closely with local, quality AV suppliers, this solution allows event organisers to move aspects of their physical event to a virtual platform to deliver a blended event. This can take many forms with attendees and speakers able to join virtually and/or on-site, from allowing live polling and Q&As in synergy with the physical audience, to avatar networking and virtual reality solutions.
Shona Clelland, cultural venues development manager for Assembly Rooms Edinburgh said: “Hosting hybrid events can offer a number of benefits, including improved accessibility, increased delegate attendance and additional opportunities for digital interaction. By hosting a hybrid event at Assembly Rooms Edinburgh, you can take advantage of our AV and software capabilities, all while broadcasting worldwide from the inspirational backdrop of our historic Georgian venue.
“With a proven track record in delivering successful live streamed and hybrid events, our in-house team can provide you with a range of options to fit your needs to help you design an event to remember.”
