This programme will show you how to translate existing audiences to online and hybrid events. How to open up new publishing and engagement channels for associations and businesses.

Conferences and trade shows have been a key tool for communications, policy campaigns, membership bodies and marketing plans since the Great Exhibition in 1851.

Association, professional and trade conferences evolved into highly specialised target marketing and niche communities and are business critical for many organisations and associations in their business cycle.

Now events have to make the leap into online production, publishing and hybrid digital combined with face to face formats when public health policy allows.

Event and communications executives know that is not as straightforward as it appeared with the first Zoom meeting.

Profiling services, engaging members, launching new products, communicating key information and sector intelligence need research and presentation Done well they are highly effective, done badly they waste resources and damage reputations.
Neil Stewart Associates have been producing hybrid events for over 10 years. The digital platforms have been provided by Narrowcast Media Group and its predecessor, Policy Review TV.

Attendee at an earlier event in this series, Jess Gallacher, Engagement & Communications Manager, Institution of Lighting Professionals said:
“An interesting event with useful and relevant insights from real experts in event resilience. I highly recommend you attend – it was worth every minute.”

Online and hybrid events do open up new opportunities but are a different production, marketing and economic model.
