Hybrid Format: To facilitate interaction between onsite and online speakers and attendees, we will employ a combination of strategies. Firstly, we will utilize a reliable and user-friendly virtual conferencing platform that allows seamless communication and engagement for online participants. This platform will enable real-time video streaming, chat features, and Q&A sessions to ensure active participation from both onsite and online attendees. Additionally, we will implement interactive elements such as live polls, breakout sessions, and collaborative activities that can be accessed by all participants regardless of their location. These tools will foster meaningful interactions and promote dialogue between speakers and attendees across both onsite and online settings.
