What is a hybrid event?

A hybrid event is an event that has an in-person and virtual audience. As you can imagine, an in-person auction is not the same experience as an online auction. So is the same for an in-person and virtual conference.

The in-person audience’s experience will begin on Tuesday, July 13 with the Welcome Party (appropriate registration required) followed by three days of education, trade show, and contests, as well as the General Session keynote address, Annual Business Meetings, President’s Gala and Hall of Fame and the Children’s Auction. Bonus: In-person attendees who register by June 30 will have access to the virtual conference via online connection.

The virtual conference will be held Tuesday, July 13 – Friday, July 16. Attendees will have access to more than 20 education sessions via live simulcast, a virtual trade show and daily social and networking events. Live-streamed events include the General Session keynote address, Annual Business Meetings, President’s Gala and Hall of Fame awards and the IAC competition. Register by June 30 to gain instant access to the Virtual Conference on opening day.

Special deal: On-demand recordings will be available for all registered attendees (in person and virtual) three days after conclusion of each virtual session through the end of the year.
