A hybrid event combines the onsite experience of an in-person gathering with the ability to also participate virtually.

As well as meeting with others who are physically present at the venue, delegates attending the event can also seamlessly schedule additional meetings with people elsewhere. Likewise, attendees taking part virtually may also meet with others located anywhere around the world and participate in the seminar programme.

For those attending virtually, our events use a combination of Marcom eSchedule PRO and Zoom to provide an engaging networking experience for all participants. This combination offers you direct and total control over the types of partners you meet during the event based on their main activity and country of origin, as well as the peace of mind of using a secure and stable platform for your meetings.

Once registered, you will receive log-in details enabling you to access our meeting scheduling system two weeks prior to the event through your myICEF portal.

The health and safety of our delegates is important to us and we will follow the latest advice provided by local health authorities to ensure that our event conforms.

All delegates should follow the COVID-19 entry requirements of the host country. If local health authority guidance prevents the in-person aspects of this event taking place, our hybrid event platform allows us to seamlessly deliver this event in an online format.

If an in-person participant cannot attend due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, we can switch the attendance seamlessly to take part virtually instead, without the need to reschedule meetings. Alternatively, you may nominate a colleague to attend in your place.

FAM Tours and Receptions, are two ways you can increase your organisation’s profile by hosting invited ICEF event participants to a private gathering either at your school/campus or a location of your choice.
