Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Webex Events

In this post-COVID society we are running almost all of our big regional meetings on this service. We actually have a special setup of it that allows us to bump up to 3,000 people on a single call. This has provided everything we need to allow our users to connect with their leadership and get updates even while we are all spread out.
  • 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.
  • It has allowed us to have big meetings even when we can't gather together.
  • It's also a familiar platform since we use Webex already, so it required very little training.
Honestly it was a bit easier to use, but also some of these other products had more features. So it was definitely something that we had to do a full analysis on to make sure we were making the right decision for the company. Because we decided that we didn't need some of the other features, and the cost saving was a big factor since we were already using the Webex meetings, Webex events was pretty much free.

It is easy to use, very reliable, and a great experience for the panelists and the participants. We have to do very little troubleshooting and since it is all cloud hosted we don't have any extra hardware overhead that we had to setup. This was a big win for us.
Since it is cloud hosted, it stays in Cisco data centers, and they have been very reliable. That doesn't mean they don't have issues--all services do--but when they have, we had lots of communication and they were very proactive and made sure all of our issues were resolved.
If you have meetings that have a panel of speakers and you do not need the audience to talk but want the to be able to do a Q&A, then this is the perfect platform for you. This is also very well suited to having a third party manage the call. We have a whole group on my team that just manages these calls for executives.
