I recommend it as it lets you have more efficient collaboration, even if you are far away from each other. The video conferencing with WebEx allows you to trade thoughts as if you were face to face.

WebEx Event Center is used across my organization for numerous scenarios ranging from internal meetings to client demos. It's a great tool to provide screen sharing and conferencing to a large group of attendees. It solves the problem of meeting and demoing solutions across numerous locations.
  • Screen sharing
  • Video sharing
  • Internal webinars
  • Video buffering could be faster
  • Resolution during screen sharing is sometimes affected
  • Recording functionality is not always dependable
WebEx excels at training events. For example, training attendees on how to use particular software. The screen sharing is extremely helpful in demonstrating functionality to the audience. It also integrates very well with the conference bridge which allows immediate feedback and participation with the audience.

  • Lead Generation
  • Simple to use
  • Great for PowerPoints and polling
  • Not very customizable
  • Needs to be easier to promote people
It is well suited in anything that requires a presentation and interaction with clients or future prospects.
It is very useful to retrieve data from attendees and receive full analytics of your meeting.
Doesn't have as much custom ability as some of its competitors and could really use some color to the room itself.

WebEx Event Center is an excellent solution for instances when large audiences need to be given information, but it is not physically or logistically feasible to be in the same room. WebEx Event Center also is great for online learning or a blended learning approach. Furthermore, the ability to record your sessions is great, since users will be able to reference back to any previous meeting as needed.

  • The WebEx Event Center portal could be more intuitive to navigate and use.
WebEx Event center is well suited for most online events/webinars. It is accessible by the majority of our target audiences and provides the features we need to host any type of event (corporate, on-demand, training). WebEx Event Center is less appropriate if your main goal is to have a recorded version that can be posted easily to other platforms as a video. This is most commonly experienced with using WebEx Event Center for online training.
