The Grand, York, has launched a range of new virtual and hybrid events to bring delegates together throughout and beyond the ongoing pandemic.

Utilising state of the art equipment, the Hybrid and Virtual packages bring together the physical and virtual audience, in one collaborative experience.

A remote-control camera captures presenters and feeds the broadcast to remote delegates so they can experience the event as if in the same room. Each event will have full technical support to ensure seamless connection around the globe.

Simon Mahon, general manager said: “We understand the importance of bringing people together and during a time when it’s not possible to all be in the same room, we want to create a platform for businesses to continue to communicate and share successes with their team.

The virtual and hybrid events are a safe and cost-effective way for businesses to host important meetings, celebrate successes and plan together in an immersive way.”

When travel resumes, the hybrid meeting is the perfect alternative to a fully remote event where The Grand will take care of the technology whilst attendees can focus on the event itself.

Simon continues “Safety is of huge importance at this time which is why our hybrid and virtual packages ensure social distancing and Covid safety practices are adhered to throughout.”
