  • We can organize online meetings professionally
  • It is simple to use, and it helps to be very easy for the end user also
  • Webex Events doesn't let you down in your most important event, it does not crash
  • Sometimes we have to open the link twice to enter an event
  • In meeting with too many participants, it can sometimes be hard to manage reminder times for the participants
  • Audio is very important in online meetings, so it should not drop when we face low internet speeds

  • invitations to events by specific email lists
  • control of participants and panelists during an event
  • customization of invitation emails
  • polls at the end of an event
  • For a common user, it can be somewhat complicated to generate an event since the menus are not very friendly for the end-user
  • It takes some adaptation time to understand all the advanced functions of Webex events
  • to customize the invitation emails you need to know how to code in HTML

  • It connects people around the world.
  • It helps organize meetings in a simple and fast way.
  • It never interrupts or goes slow.
  • When you have the link for the event you should not register into it when Webex Events opens again.
  • The settings part about camera and more should be more visible not at the left corner.
  • The page about adding a new event is a little complex.

  • Makes for engaging internal meetings.
  • Ease of use with interface.
  • Event setup is very simple.
  • More tools could be added to make events and presentations more aesthetic.
  • It would be nicer to have a "waiting room" for viewers to remain in beforehand.
  • An increased participant number would be nice to have for more than 1,000 attendees.

  • 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.
  • Webex Events is fine for basic internal meetings, but lacks sophistication for important client presentations. There is no "producer" function or back-end area for a technician to monitor while remaining invisible. Even with the camera turned off, the "host" will always appear as a presenter.
  • There is no "lobby" area for attendees in Webex Events, therefore if participants sign on to the event early, they risk seeing the presenters doing their sound check, testing the slides, etc. It would be helpful if attendees could be directed to a page that said "This meeting will begin shortly" (for example) until the actual go-live time.

  • It has a great "green room" called Practice Mode that allows you to get all your speakers in a "room" virtually to prepare while others are joining the real call. It's great.
  • Being able to go up to 3,000 users is a huge benefit to us.
  • Audio management of unmuted participants is huge.
  • Breakout rooms.
  • Sometimes practice mode causes issues, but most times its fine.
