Take Your Hybrid Meeting to Western Montana

As meeting planners ready for recovery, the hybrid meeting model is often at the top of the list for discussion. Should we add a virtual component? Planners and venues can anticipate that for the foreseeable future we will see some form of virtual aspects on RFPs, and planners and venues will have to entertain and analyze the budgets and additional planning that comes with adding virtual to what were normally in-person meetings. The real question remains, for how long?

Here in Western Montana, we see the hybrid meeting as an opportunity to host meetings that would otherwise be too large as in-person meetings. Smaller destinations can host reduced in-person attendee numbers at convention hotels and help with those attendees participating virtually. With fewer people attending in-person, the hotel convention space allows for the social distancing needed for those who want the in-person, destination experience.
