July 14, 2021
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
MPI Toronto Chapter

Date: July 14, 2021 

Time: 2:00 PM ET 

As we shifted from in-person events to virtual events, we now look towards the future of hybrid events. With vaccine rollouts and anticipated ease of restrictions, what does that return to in-person events look like? Is hybrid an option or the new paradigm of in-person events? Hybrid events is looking to be the new essential part of event planning. 

Join us on July 14 at 2 p.m. ET to learn the golden rules of in-person and hybrid events, how to design a successful event in the post-pandemic world and how to adapt your event and conference strategy around this new, necessary type of programming. We will be discussing:

• On site strategy and logistics
• Insurance and legal items to consider 
• Budget and cost
