A statement from our Chief Executive Anne McReynolds in these unprecedented times

Hybrid Events at the MAC

The events world is changing, and we are changing with it.

Over the past few months, we have had to find new ways for our customers, to hold unique, professional and accessible events from a distance.

We are finding that more and more of our customers are keen to add a professional backdrop to their events and connect with online audiences, which is why we have created our hybrid events package.

With hybrid events your guests can now login from home to our beautiful Downstairs or Upstairs Theatres where your speakers and panel will take to the stage. Whether connecting online or in-person, guests will be able to interact with events live-streamed by asking questions and taking polls.

Our in-house and experienced technical team works closely with our AV partner companies to deliver high quality virtual and digital events for you and your online audiences.

What is a hybrid event?

A hybrid event is one that includes a live audience on-site as well as an online audience.

Why should I host a hybrid event?

With government restrictions on event capacities, moving your event to have an online element is more important that ever. You can broaden your event’s reach and host your event in a beautiful setting with a professional backdrop that your guests will remember. This will allow you to connect with a wider international audience.

Can I host a hybrid event now with government restrictions?

Yes, we are following the latest government guidelines from NI Direct. Currently gatherings indoors are capped at 15 people so it is possible for your speakers to be live streamed to online audiences.

It is easy for delegates to access?

Yes, delegates can connect through a simple web browser so no need for specific apps or any additional software requirements.

Do you handle the technical side?

We have an in-house experienced technical team who will be able to handle all your requirements from your initial enquiry to your event. Our technicians will talk through all the details to make sure your event runs smoothly. Some customers have their own technical partners that they work with who we can put in touch with our technical team to support on the event setup and roll out.

How much will it cost?

The cost of a hybrid event will depend on your event requirements. Talk to our team about your event and we will pull together a bespoke proposal for you.
