Proof the expert guide works

Encore applied the hybrid event framework when planning and producing these successful hybrid events.


Going hybrid meant AHICE experienced their largest event ever with 700 virtual and live attendees participating each day from around the world. The hybrid format enabled presenters and attendees around the world to experience a professional, engaging experience both in-person at Hyatt Regency Sydney and online. Encore’s innovative live streaming platform with interactive features enabled them to do just that.​

CEDA Economic Forum

Going hybrid helped CEDA (WA) increase their conference attendance by a staggering 182% and was such a success it’ll be part of their event calendar moving forward. Learn how you can replicate this success by partnering with Encore – where award-winning live production meets cutting-edge virtual technology.

Defence + Industry Conference

Going hybrid allowed Australia’s Department of Defence’s D + I Conference to engage 1000 attendees nationwide whilst the speakers presented live in the room together with full production support and virtual stage management by Encore. The professional studio set up broadcasted the event using Encore’s interactive live streaming platform creating the closes thing to a traditional in-person event.

The event was a success on all aspects. I would never have thought that, with so much technology involved, the whole hybrid experience would be trouble free and so fluid.
