Many event venues have adapted to offer hybrid event facilities in response to the growing demand for more versatile and adaptive event spaces. Hybrid events combine the best of physical (in-person) and virtual events. Better yet, when these events are hosted in a venue equipped to cater for both the virtual and physical space it can provide a slick and interactive experience for all.

Hybrid event venues need to be fully equipped with video, live stream and audio equipment so that both the live and virtual audiences have the same, high-quality viewing experience.

As the world keeps adjusting, more event venues will need to equip themselves to meet the growing demand for these types of events and be able to host these incredible hybrid events. For now, Flock Eventing Platform has put together a list of the best hybrid event venues South Africa has to offer.

Radisson Hotel Group, with its focus and passion being in connection and bringing people together, has made the shift to offering virtual participation along with being able to host small-gathering events.

“With the various government imposed restrictions, travelling to meet in person has become somewhat impossible. However, as a hotel group with hospitality at its core, we certainly understand the importance of connections and the need to adapt and exercise flexibility, which has led to the creation and introduction of Hybrid Solutions” says Area Senior Vice President, Tim Cordon.
