Also, last six months of data showed hybrids rose 374%.
Based on Digitell’s experience, hybrid component can provide significant outreach for those associations streaming sessions free of charge and generates revenue for those associations charging the user.
Digitell revealed that most of its clients who are charging the end users attract around 50-250 virtual users. Whereas, clients who offer a live stream for free attract 500 – 3,000 registrants.
Digitell president Jim Parker said this is exciting news for everyone in the Hybrid Event business.
“We are getting calls daily from associations looking to add a Hybrid component to their meeting,” he added.
