Webinar platform, which do you advise and why?
Which platform to host webinars you advice? and why? Pros and cons.
I'm using Zoho, MS Teams, skype for business, whatsup to host video confering meetings. The purpose of the platform will be to host webinars like PMI does.

Is you have O365 which most companies do these days, then MS Teams is the obvious choice. I'm still old school and love Zoom. I use Teams at work, and Zoom for university.
Dear Tiago
Interesting your question
Thanks for sharing

I usually use zoom and I like it a lot

But, teams also work well

I have doubts about the number of people who can attend a presentation on teams (full capacity)

I've used WebEx extensively and more recently Zoom - I prefer Zoom as it provides a simpler interface and the latency performance test we did today for a webinar we are delivering on Friday showed better performance with Zoom for remote users.

For Zoom, do you need a membership to get a line for you to meet with clients or is it free ?

Thanks Sante V., Luis B., Kiron B.
I do use regulary with project teams: MSTeams, and other video conferencing enabled tools.

The goal is professional webinars as PMI does.

Considering Zoom, works well for educational purposes, e.g. training classes.

But I've doubt Zoom is the better option for webinars. One speaker, 30 to 100 or more attendees, no need to share people face/Video.

There are other and probably better "professional" tools, such as Adobe Connect, GoToMeeting, other.
They are more expensive than Zoom. Does the price justifies the functionalities they offer?
We use MSTeams for video conferencing and it works well but the problem with it is that it doesn't show more 4 windows at a time.

I heard zoom and webex works well for webinars but never used them myself before.

Hi Rami -

Not sure if there is a free option available - the Zoom platform is underpinning the RingCentral service which my company uses for shared calendars, phone calls and tele/videoconferences so we are paying for that.

Thanks Kiron, much appreciated. Cheers
Zoom as a "free" subscription. It's ok to test the platform.
Toastmasters clubs are running the events in Zoom Professional account. This week, 2nd event was good. People are still learning.

Again the scope of webinars is different. One speaker, multiple attendees.
Speaker presentation can be pre-recorded, or preferably in real time.

PMXP2020 is running on top of a INXPO technical solution.
