Entitled 'Hybrid events - exploding the myths, exploring the possibilities', the workshop will examine different levels of hybrid event, the technology enablers required, potential pitfalls and some tips for using hybrid, delivered by AV and hybrid specialists ESW.

There will also be a case study presentation from ABPCO member Ben Bradley of The Methodist Church at the session at the De Vere Wokefield Park.

ABPCO chairman Michael Foreman said: "We understand the importance of our members staying ahead of the curve when it comes to developing trends and new technologies in the conference industry.

"With hybrid events being the much discussed topic of the moment we are very pleased to be able to deliver a practical demonstration and discussion as to what is meant by the term hybrid. We encourage PCOs to attend and get hands on with hybrid, while also sharing their experiences and questions with a group of their peers."
