If you’re an event professional, you’ll be all too familiar with the uncertainty facing event planning during a pandemic. Regulations are changing on a regular basis and we still don’t have a date for when we can properly reopen conference centres and other large event spaces. Yep, it’s a veritable minefield.
So, how do you know whether to organise a virtual, hybrid or in-person event?
You don’t want to organise an in-person or hybrid event only to have it called off at the last moment. But equally, many of are reluctant to organise a virtual event in case it turns out we could have hosted it in-person after all.

Right now, the world of events is surrounded by uncertainty. Sadly, that isn’t looking set to change any time soon. According to Public Sector Catering, hospitality sales have plummeted by 48%. And nobody can agree on when events will be able to reopen.
Back in September, Conference News reported that 32% of event professionals expected live events to return in Q4 of 2020. Meanwhile, 32% of event professionals said they were ‘likely’ to run face-to-face events in Q1 of 2021, 30% expected that to happen in Q2, and 9% expected live events to return in Q3 or beyond.
Most event professionals are dealing with this uncertainty by planning virtual events instead. In fact, 94% of UK businesses plan to run an online event within the next 12 months (according to Conference News).
But as brilliant as virtual events are, we all know that the events industry is founded on meeting people face-to-face. So, being able to plan for the return of hybrid and in-person events is vital.
