Back in April 2020, we came together to hack the future of virtual events in the OG EventHack event. 💪


Now it's time to hack hybrid events. We’ve invited the best minds in events to work together and produce the industry’s largest playbook on hybrid events. Join us in this ten-week series, where the Virtual and In Person teams will square off and compete to produce the best hybrid crossover ideas. 


Next up: Episode 6 - Production Value (airing 10/29 at 1:00p EST)

Hybrid IS The Future of Events

Bringing event profs together to hack the hybrid event experience (and have some fun).

Event organizers and marketers are rethinking their 2020 and 2021 event strategy and design. While virtual events continue to be the go-to format, hybrid has been top of mind for event planners around the world. Hybrid is the future of events.


Launching September 17th, join Socio, industry leaders, and seasoned event profs weekly on Thursdays to hack the future of hybrid events and consider how they can help the industry be more sustainable, inclusive, and profitable. Each week, four new teams will present their hacks to a panel of judges and YOU. Your vote matters, so register to see all the hacks and vote for your favorite

10 weeks. 72 hackers. 2 sides. One champion.
