Event Users and Attendees

Similar to Zoom Webinars capacity tiers, Zoom Events can support up to 50,000 people (includes hosts, co-hosts, panelists, and attendees). For events with more than 10,000 people, contact sales to assess your needs and get a quote.

Session capacity within a Zoom Event is equal to the capacity of the Zoom Events license. For example, if an event host has a Zoom Events 1,000 license, they can have up to 1,000 attendees in their webinar or meeting session. A meeting session has a maximum capacity of 1,000 attendees, even if the host has a Zoom Events license greater than 1,000. Note: If a meeting is scheduled outside of Zoom Events, meeting capacity is determined by Zoom Meeting license capacity.

  • The Host has full permissions to schedule an event, control the settings, and manage the experience. The Host can assign alternative hosts who can also start the sessions (must be a licensed user associated with the same account).
  • Alternative Hosts are those helping to run your event. They can screen share content, as well as use audio and video to participate in the event. The number of panelists you can have in a session is determined by your Zoom Meeting license plan.
  • Panelists are your speakers plus those helping to run your event. They can screen share content, as well as use audio and video to participate in the event. The number of panelists you can have in a session is determined by your Zoom Meeting license plan. Panelists can join any session in an event.
  • Speakers are on-screen presenters. A speaker ticket allows you to join all sessions in an event and be a speaker at a designated session.
  • Attendees are people attending your event. If you have set up your session as a meeting or webinar, attendees have the ability to interact with the host and each other. An attendee can be promoted to a panelist by the host or co-host if it is a webinar session.
  • Panelists, Speakers, Sponsors, Interpreters, and Attendees can join your sessions with no need to purchase or download Zoom, but they will need to be signed into their Zoom account.
  • Sponsors can attend any sessions with their ticket and can moderate chat on the sponsor pages, as well as interact with attendees.
  • Interpreters can join your event and provide live language translation to specific sessions. The interpreter is an attendee in all meetings sessions, and a panelist in all webinar sessions. Interpreters are added to specific audio channels. Attendees can then chose which audio channel to listen to depending on their language preferences. To learn more about interpreters in an Event Meeting or Webinar, please visit this support article.
