Etc.venues partners with Glisser to deliver hybrid meetings
etc.venues has announced its partnership with Glisser, a company which specialises in meetings technology and audience engagement, to offer a comprehensive solution for hybrid meetings.
Event.Video will also be supporting Glisser and etc.venues in the UK to provide broadcast grade filming and production, alongside etc.venues in-house team who will provide support in the US.
The partnership will include Glisser’s presentation software and integrated audience response system, which aims to add virtual dimension to future in-room meetings.
Nick Hoare, COO, etc.venues, said: “As a global venue brand, we felt it important to set a new standard and to respond to the need for a professional hybrid solution. Event planners want broadcast standard pictures, sound and transmission in world class venues for the many important hybrid meetings that will be a major feature of events over the coming months.”
Hoare continued: “In a survey of our clients, 67% said that hybrid meetings (the blend of virtual and physical), which we have been delivering successfully for several years, will be more common.
“As we get back to business and reopen our venues, our clients expect a simple solution that delivers broadcast quality and expert management for both their in-room and virtual delegates. This partnership delivers on both counts and creates a combined expertise that can lead the way in hybrid events in the UK and US.”
Ralph Cochrane, director, Event.Video, added: “We are delighted to be working with etc.venues and Glisser to deliver best in class production for hybrid events in the UK.”
Mike Piddock, CEO, Glisser, commented: “I strongly believe that the future of live events is hybrid, combining the very best in-room experiences with innovative and engaging virtual components for attendees that cannot attend in person. We've partnered with etc venues and Event.Video, two of the strongest brands in their respective areas of expertise to create a 'dream team' offering for event planners who believe hybrid is the way forward."
