Program Overview

With the continued prevalence and increase in multi-channel (virtual and hybrid) events, event and meeting professionals are asked to learn virtual and hybrid technical production skills to execute and deliver successful events.

This course powered by the Event Leadership Institute is designed will empower event professionals who are new to producing and delivering virtual and hybrid events with an introduction to platforms and equipment terminology; evaluating & organizing content, timelines and other deliverables; developing a show flow & production schedule; preparing backup plans; and how to direct/call a virtual or hybrid show. Additionally, learners will examine and evaluate their own personal and internal capabilities to determine when a third-party production vendor should be engaged.
