It's perfect for hosting any kind of event like a conference, expo, webinar etc. But for our tradition, we always had the parties after the official part of the offline event, of course, it is not possible virtually.

If you are a small business or just started with virtual meetings, Zoom [Video Webinar] is best for you. It does the job very well for which it is made for. For teaching, webinars, workshop purposes, Zoom [Video Webinar] can be used easily. It has 100 participants limit for basic users which can be used by trial user user in order to have a idea about its working. Zoom [Video Webinar] can be very well used for bigger webinars/ seminars or bigger gatherings also by considering Business/ Professional plans. The subscription charges are quite low as compared to other software's. Zoom [Video Webinar] has limitation of not providing room or space for other features like class material, Meetings notes, Quizzes etc. Zoom [Video Webinar] can improve its performance also while presenting and it needs to work more on security reasons also.
Read full review Pros Zoom handles multiparticipant meetings very well through a centralized screen that allows you to see all participants, conduct group or individual chat sessions during the meeting and allows anyone to share documents in the meeting. The chat feature in Zoom is very helpful during a meeting for discreetly reaching out to another colleague in the meeting when you want to share verify or validate something before announcing publicly in the meeting. It's great to have sideline conversations that are relevant to myself and another colleague in the meeting without disturbing the meeting. The video features of Zoom are great! Since many of my meetings are conducted virtually, it's nice to see and talk with someone via Zoom's video feature to make our conversations more personal and meaningful Read full review Cons There was no opportunity to rebroadcast the session from Streamyard, but we mentioned it to the support team and this function was added Read full review It can get expensive with a large team. Some features in Zoom Meeting aren't in the Zoom Webinar (and vice versa). The analytical data you can get on your viewers isn't as good as GoToWebinar. The tradeoff is still that Zoom Webinar is a frictionless experience. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
We will be renewing with Zoom as long as it continues to meet our needs for client and lead outreach needs in a robust manner. With little error and an easy to use interface, Zoom has met our needs and exceeded our expectations. The cost is right and with a short learning curve, Zoom has been an easy decision to make and maintain.

I could probably list another 1/2 dozen vendors beside the ones noted above. They all have various pros and cons. I'll start with the lesser products
- while they are generally cheap or free their features are minimal and really not appropriate for anything more the small conversations.

was OK, I used it for years but it's not up to par with the quality I expect from Adobe. The updates they've made to it over the years are quite minimal and its flash-based tech is a growing issue. Also, the creation of meeting rooms and telephone/conference line integrations are extremely tedious. If you do go with this product at least get the hosting through Adobe, hosting locally seems to add a high level of slow down to the system and their support of self-hosted users has been subpar. Lasty,
is probably one of the few products on here I would flat out call AWFUL. I wouldn't use it even if they paid me. Avoid.
Read full review Return on Investment We reduced the cost price of the event due to making it virtual and also because there was no sense in printed materials, the program and catalog were perfectly arranged inside the platform We had more attendees because nobody needed to go out of the house to be a part of the event We avoided the chaos in meetings between clients and exhibitors/speakers. We never used a scheduling system before, but we realized how important and comfortable it is Read full review Zoom has increased the productivity of our research team thanks to its intuitive interface and excellent audio and video quality. We can have discussions without the interruption of buffering or the annoyance of a video/audio lag. We have increased the number of research publications and the volume of research we produce, as we can easily meet with remote collaborators. Zoom helps our research team save money by avoiding travel costs associated with in-person meetings. Read full review ScreenShots
