Hybrid Events

Redefining Virtual events

UJ Library engagement in 2021 will be a mixture of well-designed event experiences that have engagement moments built into the event itself and a virtual event platform that is able to deliver those engagement moments for both online and onsite audiences.

As a result, we plan to look at our plans when it comes to delivering engaging events and conferences. Working on different formats online and offline, hybrid interaction and engage audiences differently on different levels.
