Webex Events (new) is available on version 41.4 and later sites.

The number of people you can invite to an event depends on the license purchased. Webinars can include up to 3000 people. Webcasts are only included with event subscriptions with 3000 or more users.

After you schedule an event, you get three emails: one copy for yourself, one copy of the email that all panelists receive, and one email you can forward to attendees.

Add the basics by providing the following information:

  • Topic—Choose a topic that people will recognize and get excited about.
  • Event password—Use the password that's provided or enter your own. Attendees must enter this password to join your event.
  • Date and time—Indicate when the event will be taking place, keeping in mind the time zones of your participants.
  • Attendee view—Indicate whether you're scheduling a webinar or a webcast. See Compare Webinar and Webcast Mode in Webex Events (new) for more information.

Set up your panelists by including the following information:

  • Panelists—Enter the email addresses of the people you’re inviting to help you run your event or webcast. If they have an account on this site, you can select next to their name if you want them to be a cohost.
  • Panelist password—Use the password that's provided or enter your own. Panelists must enter this password to be part of your event panel. If panelists don't enter this password when they join your event, they just join as an attendee.

     

    If a panelist has an account on the same site where the event is hosted, they'll just have to sign in. If they don't have an account on the same site, they'll be prompted to enter this panelist password.
