A hybrid event is a meeting that combines a ‘live’ in-person event with a ‘virtual’ online component – offering ultimate choice and flexibility!
There are many challenges and pitfalls in delivering hybrid events. At Virtual Approval, our expert team and leading technology packages help us to successfully coordinate truly unforgettable experiences for in person and virtual attendees.
We have vast experience in managing hybrid events, partnering with the best audio and visual suppliers to ensure the technology performs and everyone can participate in the event equally – whether they are physically in the room or not.
Through our hybrid offering, we have successfully delivered a wide variety of events, including concerts, staff meetings, conferences and seminars, and even parties. The list continues to expand, with a successfully executed hybrid approach bringing many benefits including flexibility, efficiency and a high quality, interactive experience for all attendees.
Delivering a professional hybrid event requires impeccable planning and very specific microphone, speaker and camera positioning; at Virtual Approval, planning is our speciality, and we are always careful to ensure the highest quality audio and visuals. We also set up large screens for a ‘wall of faces’ experience to show the virtual attendees – incorporating them into the physical meeting as much as possible.
Of course, every event is different, but rest assured we will design a bespoke and carefully planned solution for your specific needs.

“Virtual Approval helped us transform our annual meeting for over 150 senior business and investment leaders into an interactive webinar with keynote speakers, breakout discussions and a forum for feedback discussion. We couldn’t have asked for a better partner. Rachel and the team created the perfect format, choreographed the discussion superbly and created an impactful series of post event videos for our website. The team at Virtual Approval is outstanding.”
“We used Virtual Approval to help us with our Online Auction for food4heroes, which raised a whopping £23,000. The Zoom show brought together presenters, performers, and video content over 1.5 hours [and] was flawless thanks to Rachel’s calm approach. If you are looking to run a live online event using Zoom, then look no further than Rachel if you want it to be a success.”
"We engaged Virtual Approval to act in the role of administrator for the first-ever virtual trial in the Business and Property Courts. Rachel worked with us to organise, research, arrange and manage the secure registration of people to attend, the daily viewing and recording, and liaison with the transcription service. It is hard to overstate what a fantastic service Rachel and her company provided.”
“It was remarkable to learn that we had only been scratching the surface of what Zoom can do. There was so much more to it, and with your expert guidance, I now feel fully equipped to use Zoom to its full potential.”
“We recently engaged Virtual Approval to provide virtual hearing management services for a virtual arbitration held via Zoom. Rachel provided comprehensive and invaluable support both during the build-up to the hearing and during the hearing itself. She was always available to provide advice and support when needed.”
“It’s a huge testament to all of you that we had such a strong showing and a highly engaged audience. Two media in attendance said it was the best virtual experience they have attended yet - WOW!”
"Saved our home and lives. 1st online High Court case (technology and construction) managed in a very professional manner without a glitch. if it was not for Rachel's input and management, the courts would not have been confident of the platform and our family would have been bullied and forced into bankruptcy by the council. Can't recommend the company highly enough. Thanks Rachel"
“I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to better their understanding and use of Zoom to book themselves on one of these courses.”
“Thank you for organising our first virtual event as a school. I was very impressed at your calm head in a stressful situation and your incredibly professional attitude throughout. The videos are looking fantastic.”
"Rachel’s fluency with virtual tools makes her the perfect companion of facilitated workshops. She is proactive, attentive to customer needs and helps you sort out difficulties in the moment where your mind as participant or as a facilitator needs to be elsewhere. She is also eager to learn and improve, a great quality to hold in a fast moving business environment.”
"Cameron, I wanted to personally thank you so much for all your hard work, support and help. I know the project grew and grew and appreciate yours and Rachel's calm, professional and exceptional organisation to make this as smooth as possible and come together. Look forward to working with you both much more in the future."
"I cannot recommend Rachel and her colleagues at Virtual Approval highly enough. Our event, the North West Ofsted Big Conversation, has twice now been hosted by Rachel and her team. Even though our future events might be able to take place again in a large venue we will still be asking Rachel to help us to manage the process again Possibly a hybrid option? Thanks Rachel and all of your amazing team."
