For us it was a no-brainer. It’s an easy decision for bookers and the online element was a great success. We’ll be keeping the hybrid concept for sure!

How they use Vito: Run regular free meetups and livestream their in-person conferences
The SmashingConf team uses Vito to run regular free meetups and to offer paid online access to their in-person conferences. Vito allows them to stream the mainstage talks to the hub as well as create a second livestream channel with exclusive behind-the-scenes content and interviews with the speakers. Vito even offers a neat solution to broadcasting sessions to screens located elsewhere throughout the physical venue — it's as simple as opening the hub in browser and running the media player full screen!
