Hybrid Event Resources

Incorporate a virtual platform into your next event!

Our space is designed to inspire innovation, foster collaboration, and make great ideas come to life.

District Hall’s unique space is ideal for events that break from tradition, redefine the rules, and celebrate the creative process. Coronavirus undoubtedly has affected how we all think about events moving forward. Our main priority is ensuring that your guests feel safe. We are increasing our cleanings, separating seating for social distancing, stocking plenty of hand sanitizer, and creating a one-way flow through the building to name a few.

If you haven’t already, we encourage you to read our full safety and reopening plan. We are also here to equip you with the tools and resources you need to confidently host your next event with us.

What’s a hybrid event anyways?

 

Basically, it’s the event version of “pivot.” Before coronavirus, the cornerstone of the events industry was in-person events. We quickly had to move virtual – thank you 21st-century technology! However, there are downsides to an entirely virtual world. In-person meetings are more engaging, build relationships, and offer a more collaborative space for guests. We know that we can’t flip the switch back to in-person events right away, so the new normal includes hosting some guests in-person while others join virtually – a hybrid!

At District Hall, we are ready for your next hybrid event. We put together this awesome list of virtual event platforms that have been tried and tested by the Venture Café New England programming team. We have also installed some new webcams in our event spaces for you to connect all your guests with ease.
