Well suited for a pre-planned presentation with limited audience participation. The presenters are able to provide their presentation smoothly and without any noticeable drops or dead air. Not appropriate really for a presentation that requires heavy audience participation. That is because there are limited options for that participation and because the individual user doesn't have many options to personalize their presence.

Based on my experience, Webex Webinars is very well suited for online presentations and seminars with a large number of attendees. More intimate meetings are less appropriate as the platform is inherently designed with large groups in mind. As an alternative for in-person conferences and tradeshows which have been made more difficult due to the pandemic, Webex Webinars fills the gap in a much-needed niche.

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.

Webex Webinars is well suited if you host webinars with a huge number of attendees very often (atleast once or twice a month). It is not suited for organization's looking to host just a few webinars a year since its pricing is quite expensive. Make sure to calculate potential number of attendees in your webinars to see if Webex Webinars is a right fit for you and worth the pricing.

It is important to create professional events to improve business, especially with participants from other countries regardless of language; thanks to the fact that this platform translates meetings in real-time with great accuracy, we always try to create awareness of remote meetings inside and outside the company, but I think which is more suitable for remote events that must have robust interaction features as is the case with this software.

This product is best suited for a quick, easy set up with minimal technical expertise required. It is also easier for the audience, as it allows end users to log in without requiring an account creation. The reporting is also helpful when you need to track attendees for follow up after the webinar.

The most appropriate way to use WebEx is through e-learning, professional webinars, or workshops. Nevertheless, it could also be a handy tool in day-to-day work. I cannot find any scenarios where WebEx would be inappropriate tool to use.

One great thing with the Webex Webinar is the option to go for a trial webinar run with the co-panelists before the actual webinar. The exact webinar is being presented but just for the hosts, which helps us iron out all our jitters and mistakes. Also, different language support is provided, which enables us to reach a wider audience much more efficiently. With the help of Webex webinars, the sessions are much more engaging and interactive. The in-session chatting option is also very much comprehensive, which I like very much.

Webex Webinars is well suited for presentations, breakout rooms, polling, and meetings, and provides great audio and video quality. Webex is less suited where the audience is less or low. We can look for other lightweight applications.

With the help of Webex Webinars, creating interactive sessions has become very simple. One great thing about Webex Webinars is the option to engage the audience. We can create polls, create some NPS-related surveys, introduce live polling, create emoji reactions, etc. within the webinar platform, which helps us understand the pulse of the user.

There are so many times during meetings when we need to break out into Executive Sessions due to statutory requirements. Webex makes that possible, but I have to become savvier with the use of break sessions.

Webex Webinars are best suited for meetings, training, Town Halls, Announcements, celebrations, Fireside chats, and much more. Content is King and keeping it brief & concise. Hire engaging speakers with Media personality who knows how to keep a virtual audience engaged. You can offer incentives or have promotional offers and showcase agendas in invitations and reminders help to attract more attendance. Always break the monotony by hosting regular polls, games, quiz and offer some great prizes and incentives. Virtual is best suited for short and concise content as people are zoomed out with long conferences with little attention span.

We can use Webex where content quality matters, join from any video systems, in-app voice listening, and security is of importance. I had once organized webinars for 10 of my customers of new product launches and their entire team was able to hear the audio clearly and the session became very interactive.

It was very secure and allowed for a professional and stable connection overall. It was easy to use in the backend and allowed for things like recurring events easier. The video quality really became behind other systems that were around. Additionally, its interactivity tools for webinars left much to be desired, unfortunately.

It is well suited for video and voice calls. It has enhanced our organization to set up a reliable communication center that our customers find useful when they need to reach us. It keeps records of missed calls so that the caller can be reached later. We can join meetings when we are many without any networking downtime.

I like the ability to manage several sales operations, and marketing content management through this software is excellent. Conferencing capabilities, like audio, are also accurate and clear. Video conferencing output is effective and profitable. Reports creations and events management are also remote functionalities that are the best and have an easy interface to manipulate.

I would definitely recommend Webex [Events] since it is easy for people of different age categories, especially for older people that are not so proficient with new technologies. It is very easy to set up an event and also to manage it before and during the event for all participants. Webex is a great solution during this pandemic where online is sometimes the best option to hold online meetings as if we are in the same room.

In our company, Webex events was best suited for large scale company meetings or internal broadcasts. Externally, it was best suited when we hosted NDA or private, invite-only webinars. It wasn’t best suited for daily meetings as it lacked some of the functionally MS teams had. For example, it’s chat functionality, virtual/blur backgrounds, and ability to view many presenters at once, lacked compared to MS teams. As a result, while Webex Events is a great platform, we found ourselves using MS teams more for daily meetings - which then led to us using MS Events more as well - deprecating the need for Webex Events.

We run between 2-5 large events per month, always using Webex Events. We find it easy to create a new event, including panelists and participants, and send reminders and follow-ups to the attendees. One thing I find very valuable from Webex Events is that I can keep track of registers in real-time and I can contact them directly.

Webex events [are] very suitable for teaching online courses where the participation of attendees is not necessary. I have even seen it used to broadcast live concerts and it worked perfectly as you can also take advantage of the paid function to allow access. For online courses where the participation of attendees is necessary, Webex Events may not be the most appropriate tool, but that is what Webex training is for
