Improved engagement: Virtual attendees can interact with the speakers and other attendees through chat, polls, and other features. This can help to improve engagement and learning.
Reduced costs: Hybrid events can be more cost-effective than in-person events. This is because virtual attendees do not need to travel to the event location.
Increased flexibility: By choosing Hybrid, this means that your event is also being recorded and can be shared as catch up allowing the Healthcare Community, where ever they are in the world, to watch the event at their own convenience.

▶️ At MedAll this can be done with or without an AV team.
If you have an AV team already booked it costs very little (if anything) for them to stream out an event using our professional streaming option (RTMPS)
No AV team? No worries!:
You will need a microphone for your speaker and a camera that can view the speaker and the main stage screen (assuming this is where your presenter will have their slides) As you were already planning the in person set up, you just need to do a couple more things
Connect main stage mic to laptop
Set up camera in room and connect to laptop
Open event on MedAll using same laptop and 'join stage'
Now share your entire screen with both camera and mic from live event streamed in and 'go live' within MedAll
