With hybrid events on the horizon, it’s important to search for event venues with broadcasting capabilities. After doing a little digging, we realized this was easier said than done; but with persistence, we were able to find 11 hybrid event venues in LA that have the technology chops necessary to successfully host your hybrid event.

 

For those event profs who already have a favorite LA event venue, don’t worry if it’s not hybrid ready. We have a solution for you too. 

 

Before we dive into the event venues there’s one more thing we want to bring to your attention: the GBAC Star Facility Accreditation.

 

GBAC STAR is the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention response and recovery accreditation for facilities. GRAC STAR is the gold standard of prepared facilitates. This accreditation means that a facility has: 

 

  • GBAC-Star-Service-seal-200Established and maintained a cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention program to minimize risks associated with infectious agents like the novel coronavirus.

  • The proper cleaning protocols, disinfection techniques, and work practices in place to combat biohazards and infectious disease. 

  • Highly informed cleaning professionals who are trained for outbreak and infectious disease preparation and response. 

While most facilities don’t have this accreditation...yet. It’s worth asking about and even better to market to your in-person attendees. 

 

Now that we’re all on the same page, let’s get to the goods.
