EP102: Getting Started With Hybrid Events w/ Ann-Marie Pawlicki Dinkel
Today, we’re joined by Ann-Marie Pawlicki Dinkel, Event Manager @ Bevy & CMX. This is the first of four interviews with Ann-Marie about Hybrid Events. For Ann-Marie, hybrid events are bridging the engagement gap with technology, taking the past and the present, and innovating the future. To plan your hybrid event strategy, start by documenting the event brief clearly as a single source of information across all coordinating and participating teams. Develop this brief based on the event’s specific needs, lessons from previous events, and coordinate with contributing teams. Open-mindedness, a determination to host the best hybrid event possible, having a thick skin, and developing patience help event managers manage their stress in these uncertain, rapidly-changing times.
