I actually like to use this as training for onboarding new talent. The webinars are incredibly useful. But sometimes face-to-face training and coaching are more suitable for the healthcare environment we operate in.

It is the best way to make a meeting especially in the times we are living. It is a safe and easy platform that anyone can use. Any event can be set up really easily and you can manage all the participants in the meeting really well. I strongly recommend if you have important and serious meetings to make

Pros

BrightTALK

  • It expands our audience by allowing us to tap into their database of users.
  • It is easy to use and is reliable. We don't have any technical issues.
  • It has robust reporting that provides a lot of data on attendees.

Webex Events

  • Cisco Webex Events is very straightforward and easy to use. Setting up an event within the platform is quite simple - anyone can do it.
  • Webex Events is a great add-on feature to the Webex conferencing platform to allow a one-way broadcast of information, rather than worrying about attendees being able to interrupt the presentation.
  • Recording a session is fairly simple and accessing the recordings post-event is quite reliable. I believe you can also upload .mp4 files into the Webex Events platform to serve as a host.

Cons

BrightTALK

  • The user interface can be a bit tricky at times, as you have to dig down to find certain information. However, it is a robust interface and the information is there.
  • Some features, like adding questions or resources, have cut-off windows, so you cannot make last-minute additions or changes.
  • The bridge occasionally drops speakers, and this can be disconcerting to presenters. However, it does not happen too often.

Webex Events

  • There always seems to be room for video quality improvement (not a necessity, but would be nice)
  • Mobile screensharing from iOS/Android (and other mobile) devices would be a great feature
  • The mobile app should be able to track meetings a user has been invited to, but does not do so (yet)

Cisco Webex Events allows us to connect with internal and external users. Cisco Webex Events is easy to use and set up. It has great video and audio quality. It has always been available for our scheduled events. And COVID-19, has allowed us to continue conducting our panel discussions and focus groups to keep new product development moving forward at a rapid pace.

WebEx is available 24/7, as long as the user has a reliable internet connection and the WebEx servers are up (they are typically up when we need it).

Webex Events is well ahead of many other online meeting platforms in terms of features and options available to customers, and it has really aided me and my team in achieving our objectives when planning events. It would have been ideal if the fee was a little lower and the UI was a little more user-friendly for newcomers.

Alternatives Considered

BrightTALK

It is easy to use and very popular, yes, but a bit too mainstream for us in our industry. BrightTALK it's more sophisticated and it's content and feels more professional to us.

We initially had WebEx Event Center, but have recently moved to Adobe Connect. WebEx is great for those organizations that do not have a relationship with Adobe. As an end user, WebEx Event Center is easier, cleaner and more familiar. As an administrator, it's more intuitive when scheduling and organizing meetings too.

  • During these last years of the pandemic, Webex events [have] been a very important tool for many of our customers, especially the convention centers.
  • Webex Events was very helpful to one of our customers who had a need to broadcast live concerts. Doing it in person would have been impossible due to the pandemic
