The Hybrid City Alliance, of which Prague Convention Bureau is a founding member, has released a white paper exploring the design, sustainability and risks of hybrid and multi-hub hybrid events. The paper’s release coincides with the addition of five new members and the launch of a dedicated website.
The free white paper, entitled Your Ultimate Guide to Multi-City Hybrid Events, has been produced from the output of four global workshops in January and February 2021 attended by congress organisers, convention bureaux, and suppliers such as hotels and AV companies.
The white paper, that is available for download on the new alliance website, sets out to:
To coincide with the launch of the white paper, The Hybrid City Alliance is also announcing the addition of five new members: Costa Rica Convention Bureau, Fukuoka Convention & Visitors Bureau (Japan), Liverpool Convention Bureau (UK), Quito Tourism Board (Ecuador), and Tourism Winnipeg (Canada).
These three additions bring the total membership to 17 cities from 12 countries across 6 continents.
Bridget Chisholm, Director of Conferences at the International Leadership Association said:
“The Hybrid City Alliance is poised to provide invaluable partnerships, making it easier for planners to move forward with hybrid and multi-hub events. This creative alliance offers the opportunity for associations to grow membership not only in areas that have historically not had the resources to travel but also in existing markets keen to stay put. When we are able to cast this wider net of participation, space is created for the advancement of new knowledge, innovative practices, and cutting-edge theory which benefits not only members but also the larger global community.” The International Leadership Association hosted their last in-person conference for 1,200 delegates in Ottawa in 2019 – this year’s event will be in Geneva, another member of the Hybrid City Alliance.
Full details of the members, further information about the Hybrid City Alliance and contacts are all now available via a dedicated website.
