We use Webex Events for any large scale video conferencing events and training sessions. It allows up to 10000 people to join the event and participate in polls, Q and A's, and other functions, all within an easy-to-use interface. Organizing these events is also fairly easy and allows a comprehensive suite of options and customizations.
  • Large scale video meetings.
  • Easy connection and configuration.
  • Reliable and solid connections.
  • Easier to use configuration.
  • More interaction options.
  • More host options.
Webex Events are well suited to video meeting events or video conferences, with a large number of users joining from several locations. It allows them to easily connect with whatever device they have and interact and participate as must as they want. It also works very well in terms of management of users and gives lots of options to keep them engaged.

We used it in our hybrid event to be able to present the students musical performances to parents from all over Quebec who could not travel to see them on stage. Also, we used it to send information to all the music directors instead of sending a ton of emails with all the information.
  • Import in bulk informations
  • Links between all the informations available
  • App
  • Easier to install a link between a POP (point of purchase) for hybrid event and app
  • Download pictures or visuals directly instead of a link when import in bulk
  • Lower price per user for non-profit
be able to share an online event at the same time as a face-to-face event and contain all festival information in one place. Being able to present student musical performances to parents who cannot travel is a benefit that was greatly appreciated this year. On the management side, having to enter the information in one place for the music directors allowed us to maximize the work time allocated to these information distribution tasks.

We use Webex Events for our annual user conference. We have used the app at live events, as well as managed virtual conferences completely through Webex. The ability to have a registration, the event app and website, session streaming, networking, etc. all in one place is extremely valuable to us.
  • Their customer support is fantastic. I can always get a quick answer through their chat function, and everyone I have spoken to has been great.
  • The attendee-facing event app and website are really easy to use. Our team has to do very little troubleshooting with customers.
  • The streaming function with Restream is fantastic. We can set up professional-looking sessions with banners, videos, music, title slides, etc. without hiring a third party to manage because they made it so easy.
  • I wish session recordings was managed differently. You should be able to have a list of all the sessions and be able to download recordings from one place.
  • It would be nice to be able to customize the look of the desktop event site more.
Webex Events is a fantastic tool that any size company can take advantage of. It is easy enough to use that a small team can manage an event, but robust enough for larger events and teams who want to take advantage of more features. You can host a highly produced general session with multiple presenters, slides, and video transitions, and small, intimate breakout discussions all in the same app.

We used Webex Events for our hybrid conferences and festival. It helped us stay connected to our members during the pandemic. It also allowed a cheaper and more reliable option for those who could not travel during the time or did not feel safe traveling. We tried other platforms, but ultimately Webex was the best.
  • Communication
  • Customer Service
  • Easy to use!
  • Chat functions within the spaces.
Webex Events was perfect for our hybrid Fall/Spring conferences and our Annual Festival of New Musicals. It helped us easily stay connected with our members who needed a cheaper option during the pandemic and allowed them to join us completely online. We loved all the functions and would use it again and again.

We use Socio (Webex) to host our annual user/customer conference. We've used it for two years now, and the product was amazing when we started, and it has continued to evolve. Their support teams are incredible, and the product is so easy to use. It was a great experience for the admins and for the event attendees.

The platform is dynamic, and would be great for a recurring event series (events are so easy to copy), annual conferences (our use case), and hybrid events.

Interactions in our organization has been the most productive move that has enhanced development infrastructure. It gives me great space for engaging customers from each everywhere. During marketing campaigns we can freely interact with clients from social media platforms. Reaching remote marketing teams and connecting with sales representatives has been more productive than ever before. Webex Events has all modern tools that bring great conversation experience across the company teams.
  • Connection with remote teams.
  • Engaging audiences from anywhere.
  • Sharing ideas with colleagues through online discussions.
  • I have not experienced any area that requires changes.
  • The modern features performs best.
I highly recommend this platform to other organization for all webinar events. When I am presenting task to my colleagues, sharing screen with my audience has been great with webinar Events. It has all chatting and video interaction tools that enhance great communication. New users familiarize faster with all tools since it has simple user instructions.

We utilized it in February 2021 as we pivoted from doing regional in-person conferences to one national virtual conference. We used it as an event platform for that conference and utilized its features to try and replicate most of the aspects of our in-person conference experience. Going into our next conference cycle we utilized it to create the mobile apps for our in-person conferences as well as continue to use it as the platform for a virtual events.
  • It has quite a few optional and customizable features that can be utilized.
  • It's easy to integrate your existing tools like Zoom, YouTube, Vimeo, and streaming services.
  • It's flexible in the way that you upload content in that you can enter things one at a time on the website, or use a spreadsheet to upload a larger amount of content.
  • There are some features we did not want to use that we were not able to remove from taking space on the front page of the user apps.
  • During our first time using the platform there were some issues on their back end with the number of users we had joining our event. They owned the problem and we were compensated. Their back end has greatly improved since then and we used them the following year with no issues.
  • When using the most restrictive setting for user access, we did have some users have difficulty logging in. This was mostly user error, but there were some cases where it did not seem to be.
It's a great platform for a virtual event as well as an easy way to create a phone app for an in-person or hybrid event. It's especially good if your event is not simply open to the public and you want to restrict access to the content to those who have paid/registered etc.

I use Webex Events with several of my clients. Many of my clients are rare disease organizations and Webex has so many accessibility options along with a crazy amount of customizations. All Icons, colors, etc. are customizable which is great and makes these rare disease communities feel more connected to the event. For instance, I work with an organization that has a large deaf and blind community. For the icons, we changed the announcements icon to an ear with a hearing aid. For the attendee's icon, we switched it to a person with a cane, a person with a guide dog, and a person. This is truly the best platform I have found so far (and I have looked at many).
  • Accessibility
  • Customization
  • Live Streaming
  • Event Game (gamification)
Honestly, Webex Events is great for any scenario. The only scenario it wouldn't be useful is if it's just an in-person event and not hybrid or virtual. There are so many great features on this event platform. I highly recommend it.

Webex Events is the most preferred platform in our company that helps us in creating the most productive teams together. My project team organizes events online to cut traveling costs and accommodation expenses. This tool has all features that can easily help in organizing successful virtual meetings without downtime. When providing instructions to my juniors on the right project implementation path always deliver the best experience. Presentations with this platform bring out the best with clear voicing and high-quality notes and video displays.
  • Presentating project guidelines to my colleagues.
  • Bringing my audience together via virtual connection.
  • Calling and video chatting with customers and workmates.
  • Every feature has the right tools.
  • I have not discovered any new feature that can be added.
I have worked with Webex Events for several years now and the performance has been the best compared to other tools. I manage to conduct online classes and listen to my colleague's submissions without any challenge. It has an autosave tool that enables the absent members to access my content at a later time. It has simple and flexible features that can be customized to fit our demands.

WebEx Events is used in our company to arrange events, conferences, meetings, and annual events. WebEx Events has a good customer-valued UI and can be easily used to talk with them and meet with them. WebEx Events helped us to make some relations with customers and attendees there and made some sales through it.

WebEx Events is mainly used for online events. Now it is used for hybrid events. If a company is going to arrange an event, then WebEx Events is one of the good platforms. They also have a lot of options and a good user interface. It have good streaming and good chatting features while in WebEx Events.

Webex Events has been incredibly impactful for our internal company-wide events. The best part, in my opinion, was the easy accessibility for all attendees of all event information while on-site during our event. Webex Events also elevated our attendee experience for our event including the registration process, communications during and before the event, as well as engagement during the event through the gamification and social wall options. We also utilized the live streaming functionality for our virtual attendees, as we had a hybrid event.
  • Their app is really well done and easy to navigate by users during the event.
  • Their agenda tie-in with maps is a great feature. Really makes it easy for attendees to find where they're going during events.
  • I really like how easy it is to schedule communications to go out before and during events.
  • I would like to see an improvement in the live streaming capabilities within Webex Events. It would be great if there was a more intuitive integration with Zoom, including a more simplified setup process, as well as integrating the live chat between the 2 platforms.
  • For the gamification, it would be great if the games could be scheduled to open at certain times.
I implemented Webex Events to be used for internal hybrid company-wide events, and it fit our needs really well.

We used Webex Events as a virtual platform for an annual conference for attorneys, accountants & mental health professionals. The biggest problem that we needed to address was having an engaging and exciting conference virtually. The video streaming, sponsorship, networking & gamification capabilities addressed these issues and brought our event to life! Webex was the best platform that we could have chosen for this event... and we trialed A LOT. We ultimately decided on Webex due to the user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing interface, multiple ways to monetize sponsorships, and ease of streaming. We are very happy with our choice!
  • User-friendly front end interface.
  • Incredibly easy to build out the platform on the back-end.
  • 11 different ways to monetize sponsorships within the platform itself.
  • Endless support during the build-out process.
  • The video rooms did have some issues but that was on the user-end.
  • Having attendee support during the time of the event (allowing attendees to send in support tickets).
Webex Events is very well suited for virtual, hybrid, or in-person events. Webex events have a place for anything from conferences to trade shows to fundraisers. It has amazing capabilities for registration, lead generation & creating check-in badges with QR codes. The socio-streaming studio is an ideal choice for virtual or hybrid events.

Our digital marketing plans could not have been achieved without Webex Events. This tool connects us with the most potential customers that offer positive results. Our trade events work perfectly when we use this platform. It gives us the best working plan that can connect with teams from all areas within our business environment. When we have any virtual event it can easily accommodate all willing team members without any challenge.
  • Marketing virtual event coordination.
  • Online meeting organization.
  • Team chatting and calling.
  • The performance and all tools work effectively.
  • Everything in communication infrastructure works well.
We have achieved most plans due to the effective operation of Webex Events. It links our company with the external environment that has boosted our international relations. Engagement with clients is easy and they feel free to contribute to any agenda that aims at boosting our trade. Meeting organizers can decide the theme and content that can be displayed during a meeting. When doing presentations it displays clear content that is attractive to the audience.

We used Socio for 2 days with 300 attendees at a virtual conference. We were able to have registration integrated with our event platform that showcased the agenda, presenters, and vendors.
  • Accessible for persons using screen reading
  • Ease of use for attendees to navigate the platform
  • Easily available support for building out the platform
  • I would like more options in the build out phase that are customizable.
  • Having a field to confirm emails as that's the way to access the platform and if they transpose letters, then we do not have a valid email.
Socio was fantastic for our fully virtual conference. The registration was so simple and streamlined that I recommended to the board to do another event next year that is hybrid. The options are great and endless when we can meet in person again, but still record and have a place for all the sessions to be viewed, professional credit given, and keeping everything secure.

Our student organization needed to make the switch from planning an in-person conference to an online one. Socio was quick to help us with that switch. We were able to successfully host 100+ students and professional industry workers to our IISE Conference. We wanted a site with all of our ideas and features centralized, which Socio was able to give.
  • Centralized Features
  • Incorporate a steaming service
  • Link internally through the site
  • Q&A feature: to address questions directly
  • Highlight the days of the conference more (on the agenda tab) as it was easy to miss the second day of our conference.
  • Highlight the "Enter Code" feature on registration
This platform was easily the best platform our University could have chosen for more reasons than one. It was easily accessible for both our users and the administrators/editors. We were able to successfully send out messages throughout the event to highlight certain sessions/divert the users to a competition/career fair.

We have used Socio for in-person conferences via mobile phone app to manage the flow of our events, share files, and network. Recently we've used the virtual conference options as well and found them to be exceptionally easy to use. Our conferences can have up to 200 people from across the world use it with little guidance.
  • Customer Support
  • Set up
  • Adoption
  • Scheduling
  • User management
  • Chat Features
  • Branding
  • Live stream feature could passively update more often (niche issue however)
  • Truly difficult to think of improvements
If you can't commit your entire work day to getting to terms with an event platform then this is where you need to go. Their support team is one of the BEST I've ever worked with and they are quick on helping with even the weirdest requests. In some cases my team receives technical restrictions from other areas of the business that need to be accommodated and the support staff at Socio is quick to find ways to make it happen.

We use the Socio platform for event management and engagement primarily. Most recently we used this at our National Sales Conference in an effort to eliminate paper materials and boost engagement across the attendees. we had ~500 attendees on the platform and it paid for itself throughout our 3 day event.
  • Session Management
  • Networking
  • Socialization
  • Gamification
  • Maps could be a bit more user-friendly (to create). Would love options for freeform areas.
The Socio platform worked wonderfully for our internal events. It was a great place for everyone to get acquainted and hyped up before the conference, a great place for everyone to stay informed while at the conference, as well as the ideal place to send out survey and post-conference information.

We had the need to move an in-person conference to a virtual conference. Socio allowed us to do the conference as well as create networking and a community for it. We also were able to sell event sponsorships and highlight those partners.
  • Virtual exhibitors/sponsors
  • Easy to use and professional-looking streaming
  • Easy to implement
  • The initial setup of the branded app with Apple was a bit cumbersome.
It is best for a virtual event with live streaming. Socio works well with Zoom, but Socio Streaming was extremely well received.

Normally our company hosts a huge annual event to network with our existing customers, new customers, and people from all over the world to learn about our product, for our customers to share the projects they're working on using our product, to collaborate with universities and instructors and students. We needed to host virtually this year due to the pandemic, and Socio was a great fit.
  • interface
  • recordings
  • using our company's branding
  • chat features
  • schedule of events
  • live Q&A
  • everything worked well!
Socio was perfect for what we needed. We have companies from all over the world join our networking event and we needed something easy to use for everyone. The live presentations, Q&A and chatrooms were great! The only thing Socio couldn't do was live face-to-face networking only because this is purely virtual. It's a changing world and this will be the new normal most likely, but if there was a way to encourage attendees to talk more in the networking areas that would be great!

We've always been an in-person event. And in the last two years, we have had to pivot to virtual. Socio helped us do that. Socio is being used across the whole organization as an alternative to live events. We use this product as a bonus to the attendees until we can meet again in real life. And when we do, Socio will be used as the conference mobile app. It can even help to produce a hybrid event. Details change up to the end when producing an event. So being able to make changes on demand and alert the attendees via push notifications addresses those challenges.
  • Socio Restream Broadcast Studio
  • Excellent Customer Service Managers
  • Online Ask Us Anything Tech Support
  • Mailchimp Integration
  • Add Attendee Video Camera Option in Sessions Along With The Chat Functionality
  • More Options for Speakers - Virtual Backgrounds
If you have to produce a virtual event for the first time. This platform will be a great choice. With seamless tech, and support, Socio makes it easy to transition to virtual. Also for hybrid events and in-person events, the mobile app and all the ways attendees and sponsors are able to interact is excellent!

Socio may not be appropriate if the producers are not technically savvy and are not willing to learn. In that case, hire someone who can help.

Our Main Event each year is a convention. Usually, it is in person with about 4000 people. Last two years we have been virtual. Socio was the event app for our last in-person event and the two virtual events we have held. It connects with our website and our registration system to automatically bring in content and attendee information. In this last year, we also used their platform for the streaming solution.
  • Customer service and attention is the best that I have seen. We have use 4-5 different event app systems over the past decade and no one came close to socio in terms of both meeting our needs and responding to questions and issues
  • The product itself is flexible but fairly easy to use. We have a fairly complex event (120+ sessions over three days with hundreds of speakers) and not only did it handle it - but it looked good.
  • Socio continually adds improvements to the product that really do make it better. They provide ample information on how to use each new feature as well.
  • Many of the changes to the product I know came from direct requests made by our organization.
  • For an organization like out with so many sessions, speakers, and sponsors, but only a few staff members, it would be nice if there was a level of access to the back end content that we could give to the speakers and sponsors for example so they could upload their own information or make needed changes.
  • Also within the socio studio - currently there is not an easy way for presenters to interact with chat or to handle Q&A.
There are always plusses and minuses to various platforms and nothing is ever going to be a perfect fit for everyone. Socio does so much very well, but there are a few places, like the current way that presenters are cut off from attendees in the normal system that if that is what is most important to you, there may be better options. However, if you are talking about out-of-the-box solutions for an event of any size, their customer service puts them far above anyone else.

Socio allowed us to host our first hybrid event for our Annual Retailers Conference. We were able to implement a virtual option as well as a mobile app for our in-person attendees. It was a game-changer for our event and the attendee engagement was amazing!
  • Customer Service
  • Easy of use and set up
  • Tons of great features
  • Live stream function was difficult to set up
Socio is perfect for hybrid events as it is equally as useful for in-person attendees as well as virtual. It encourages in-person attendees to engage more during the conference and allows virtual attendees access to the entire event. Virtual attendees having access to all of our general sessions as well as breakout sessions was a game-changer.

Socio was new for my association to use. We needed a platform for our virtual conference in 2021. Some of the things we loved about Socio were how user-friendly it is, how responsive the support team was, and the helpful how-to guides in the Socio library. The platform has a lot of features to help make a virtual event interactive & fun for attendees. The phone app is a nice addition, too. We received positive feedback from speakers, sponsors & attendees alike.
