What they needed: A way to engage their audience in-person and virtually.

Teneo came to Vario with the goal to gather their top industry partners and highlight how to host a safe hybrid meeting. The day consisted of industry status updates and educational content, f&b offerings, and a small vendor trade show.

What we provided: A hybrid solution that offered the best of both worlds.

Hybrid Solutions

The Vario crew provided on-site equipment to support the in-person component as well as the Vario-built virtual meeting platform. We had just over a month of pre-production lead time to build a fully customized platform and plan the logistics of on-site production, including video, audio, lighting, staging, and scenic.

The Vario virtual platform allowed Teneo to customized their event page, allowing their virtual attendees to connect further with their brand. It also gave the virtual attendees the ability to engage with the speakers, partners, and watch videos on demand.

Teneo and their partners walked away feeling optimistic about where events are heading post-Covid. They have seen what Vario can do for them, not only in person but also virtually, and they are excited to work with us on future events.

The success of this event has led to the development of an exclusive partnership between Vario and Teneo granting us the opportunity to serve them and their clients by producing more amazing hybrid events. The future looks bright for Vario and Teneo and we are honored and excited to serve them and their clients as preferred partners.

What makes us different:

Our foundation stems from knowing how to produce exceptional in-person events. We have combined our expertise in event production and have brought this experience to a virtual environment. We designed a platform that incorporates fundamental event planning, production, and the latest technologies so your audience can be mesmerized any way they engage. In-person, virtual, and now hybrid solutions are the ways we take your event to the next level.

What They Had To Say

“Vario helped us transform our historically in-person networking event into a professional hybrid event, allowing us to extend our reach beyond our regional attendees. Their team easily worked within our condensed planning period and were very prompt in their responses. Onsite, they helped keep things on time, provided creative solutions to any issue that arose, managed our VIP speakers, and made the whole process seamless for our team. Highest recommendations to Vario for both their virtual and hybrid event management! ”

Vario huddles onsite with us to discuss flow, options, and they infuse every event with spirit and thoughtfulness that ultimately assist in the overall pulse of our organization. I view hiring Vario as one of my personal successes because they not only meet my expectations, but far exceed them to ensure my executive, our employees, and our company is consistently setup for success. ”

Elizabeth Fox, Executive DirectorForte For Children Foundation

“Five Stars for sure! My second year working with Vario on our annual spring conference and each time it gets better, knocking it out of the park. The team gives all they have in making the vision come to life. Working with Vario from the pre-production, where they make sure all the details are covered, to program day, where the team’s experience, pride in work and passion shines in creating an incredible attendee experience is what makes me a Vario client. As a meeting planner, Vario puts my mind at ease knowing I am working with a top-notch planning and production company and the A/V and production in my program are in the best hands. I look forward to working with the Vario team again.”

Their team were exceptional and went all-in when it came to design, curation, desired impact, and budget constraints. This event was a success in a large part because of them and their professionalism. We simply could have not executed this event — to the world-class level — without their support.

My experience with Vario has given me the confidence that they are the team that can push our brand and experiences to the next level.
