Manage anywhere

You don't run an event only from your office, so your event management software should go wherever you do. With a mobile responsive design, the Webex Events Platform lets you manage the suite of Webex Events products from your office computer, the tablet you carry around while preparing for your event, and instead the phone in your pocket. 👍

Communities

Communities are just like events, except their time frame can be months or even years. A community supports a variety of business goals, from growing your member base to increasing brand loyalty, gathering feedback, and keeping attendees hyped and engaged throughout your annual event cycle.

Webex Events Communities have the same great features as Webex Events Apps, with unique abilities supporting year-round usage by members around the globe.

Branded Mobile App

Everyone can use the Webex Events App mobile solution at no additional cost. If you want a mobile app that only shows your events, customized with your branding, a Branded Mobile App is the option for you!

Lead Retrieval

The Lead Retrieval by Webex Events app turns every booth at your in-person venue into a lead generator! Your sponsors and exhibitors use their iOS or Android phone to easily and instantly capture attendee information at conferences, trade shows, and other in-person events. They simply scan attendee QR codes and then rate a lead's quality, export to their CRM, review real-time metrics, and smash ROI.

Live Display

Live Display is perfect for showing event information and attendee engagement on any screen. This display gives in-person attendees the same branded experience no matter where they look.
