A dynamic program is of great importance for an online event. We have the attention span of about 20 minutes when listening to someone before losing interest. So we highly recommend dividing your event into plenary and non-plenary parts. This also possible with hybrid events. Visitors are divided into physical area's within the event venue. The online visitors are divided into digital break-out rooms. Both visitors are able to have smaller group discussions, participate in workshops or follow non-plenary parts of the event.
