Joining the Webex Event

Up to 200 Webex Events panelists can join events using Webex-registered or on-premises registered boards, desk, and room devices. Attendees can’t join through a video device and need to connect to audio when they join their events.

Webex Events Panelist Support is available on WBS33.7 sites and above.

You can't join as a panelist from a device linked with Edge for Devices with Webex Optimized Experience enabled. To join from this type of device, you need to enter first through the Webex app into the event and have the app dial back to the device.

Make sure to keep the email invitation of the event, where you can find the numeric password to join the event.
