What is a hybrid event?
Hybrid events combine the physical and virtual world. You can meet the exhibitors at the physical venue and you can profit from various ways to interact and engage with the recruiters online. The experience on the day will combine both physical and virtual features.
What do you need to consider when participating in a hybrid event?
1. Before the event
The online platform provides you with extensive information about the event and the exhibitors.
After you have registered, you can already visit the virtual venue a few days before the event actually goes live. You can find out more about the physical venue, book available 1-1 conversations with recruiters, do research about the exhibitors, and even apply for jobs. This will help you to make most of the event day and to make a lasting impression on the recruiters during the event!
Your profile will be visible to all recruiters participating in the event. An informative profile will help you to get the attention of the recruiters and to get headhunted. We therefore highly recommend that you add information to your profile and upload your CV! Even if you are planning to participate physically, recruiters can still reach your profile and ask to connect with you.
2. During the event
Use the time to meet the different exhibitors and find out what they can offer you!
Since you are participating in person, you can use the ‘Mobile view’ by scanning the QR codes promoted around the venue. The QR codes will redirect you to the ‘Mobile view’ of the event. Here are some examples of how you can integrate the ‘Mobile view’ into your physical visit:
- You can find out where the different companies are located via the event map.
- Scan the QR-codes of the different exhibitors to explore their online content.
- Connect with the companies to stay in touch. Use the 'connect' button to share your profile with the company. This way you can stay connected on the platform, up to date on new jobs they post, and the recruiters can even reach out to you via the platform after the event.
3. After the event
For most events, the event lobby stays open for a couple of days/weeks after the event.
