Hybrid Meeting Suites, Hybrid Studios, Hy-End Event and Virtual Meeting Platform are four innovative solutions from Deutsche Hospitality in the area of digital meetings formats. Yoga lessons, catering and cocktail courses can all be added.
Deutsche Hospitality implemented four products to allow the realisation of digital and location-independent concepts. Hybrid Meeting Suites, Hybrid Studios, Hy-End Event and Virtual Meeting Platform offer solutions for virtual professional events.
Demand for innovative concepts that facilitate a modern way of working was high even before the onset of the pandemic.
Marcus Bernhardt, CEO of Deutsche Hospitality
The past few months have brought about a crucial acceleration of this trend and have also had a lasting impact on our thoughts regarding contemporary models for remote work and meetings. Our four new events formats are delivered via our own dedicated DH platform and enable us to offer customised solutions for all types of virtual and hybrid events. Hybreetings is the first publicly available product to emerge from Deutsche Hospitality’s reshaped Commercial & Distribution Division, which has been headed by Daniela Schade since December 2020.
Hybrid Meeting Suites offer a suitable location for virtual conferences, and each Suite is able to accommodate up to 30 participants. It is a plug & play format with camera, loudspeaker and microphone equipment. Specialist staff and hotel service are to hand. Webinars involving up to 400 participants are possible. Technical support and modern cameras, loudspeakers and microphones are available and live surveys can also be carried out.
Deutsche Hospitality current has two permanently installed Broadcast Studios at the Steigenberger Airport Hotel in Frankfurt am Main and at Steigenberger Wiltcher’s in Brussels. Pop-up studios can also be set up at all hotels in Germany, Austria and Switzerland within a very short lead-time. This allows the staging of live-streamed virtual events with an unlimited number of contributors. The necessary technology is included, and further possibilities are provided in the form of the sharing of presentations, the recording of sessions, audience interaction and the conducting of surveys.
Hy-End Events encompass a tailored set-up for a live audience whilst also streaming to participants at external locations. It also takes care of production, streaming and the embedding of multimedia contents.
