Through the combination of a physical & virtual event, both physical & online participation is possible. So participants who cannot visit an event physically (e.g. Coronavirus) can just take part remotely. In the registration process, participants can select their mode of attendance, experience the broadcasted sessions and meet other participants through video meetings.
Barcelona, Spain / Virtual
Due to the Coronavirus, this year's Mobile World Congress was canceled. Organizers of one of the MWC Networking Events decided to keep going and find a solution.
They went for a hybrid event and used virtual meetings as an extension for their physical event, making participation for everyone possible who could not travel to Barcelona because of travel restrictions.
