Meeting or Event?

There are two types of conferences that can be done online.

  • The meetings are those where everyone speaks. Then you can gather 50 or 200 people, everyone will have the microphone available to participate at any time;
  • At events, it may happen that more than one person is speaking, but normally the other participants are just spectators. It’s like a private live broadcast. It can be used to do training in a company or an online class.

What platforms does the event tool have?

  • Zoom (up to 10,000 participants)
  • G Suite Enterprise Google Meet (up to 100,000 people)
  • In Event Virtual Lobby (up to 100,000)
  • Cisco WebEx Events (up to 3,000).

Event or live broadcast?

Events are private, only invited people can participate and watch the content or interact with the other participants. Already a live transmission (live) made by YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, or Instagram is released for anyone to find, there is no way to block or make it private that anyone else sees.

Not to mention that the applications of events or video calls offer tools for presentation or interaction with viewers, facilitating the dynamics.
