Copy the event information highlighted below and paste it into your email client to send to attendees and panelists. Note that there are unique event addresses and passwords for attendees and panelists - make sure you send the right info to the right groups, and NEVER send panelist details (meeting address/password) to attendees.

Info for Event Attendees

About Webex Events for attendees…

  • Participant's audio input/video is muted by default for Events
  • Event attendees are only visible to other meeting panelists. Event attendees will only see other attendees in the list if the event host allows it – best practices dictate that attendees NOT be displayed.
  • Questions or comments for meeting hosts must be sent through the Q&A panel
