What is the Webex Events platform?
The Webex Events platform is the management hub that event organizers use to build attendee registration, check-in, and Event App experiences that delight. 🤩 Whether your event is in-person, virtual, or hybrid, the platform is your team's gateway to building, managing, and controlling everything in Webex Events.
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 the phone in your pocket. 👍
Start with an Event
No matter which products you're using, you always start by creating a single Event, then you configure the products you need from within that Event. After creating your Event, you're directed to the Overview page where you'll configure the Registration, Sessions, Onsite, Event App, Lead Retrieval, and Live Display products.
The Event Overview page is your hub for setting up each product and getting useful metrics and information to help guide you. As your event progresses, the Activity section keeps you informed with key metrics that link to each related product's Metrics page.
The Useful Links section dynamically shows links to helpful videos, articles, and learning courses based on which products you've activated and how close your event date is.
Our Create a Webex Event article has the details to help you get started.
The Webex Events platform has a simple, intuitive navigation layout that makes managing your events a breeze. Whether you're using individual Webex Events products by themselves or taking advantage of the entire suite, you create your Event in the platform first, then configure the products you need using the navigation bar.
Webex Events is a one-stop-shop for all of your event needs, providing solutions for Registration, Onsite check-in and badge printing, Events, Lead Retrieval, and Live Display. Keep reading to learn more about each of these. 📚
Webex Events Registration pairs seamlessly with other Webex Events products for a smooth attendee experience. It's also easy to set up, so you can spend your time doing what you do best — putting on amazing events.

You have enough to deal with on event day, so we designed Webex Events Onsite to be the most simple and intuitive event check-in, badge printing, and session check-in solution out there. With Onsite's dynamic badge editor, create rich custom badge designs tailored to different attendee types.
No event check-in hardware? No problem! Rent iPads, stands, printers, and routers from us, and we'll order your badge stock, too. Everything you need ships directly to your venue.
For session check-in, session staff can simply use their personal devices, or you can source equipment.
There's so much more to Onsite, so read all about it in our Introduction to Onsite article.
Want a companion app for your in-person event? Need a complete solution for a hybrid or purely virtual event? The Webex Events App has everything you need to give your attendees that "wow" experience. 😮 Don't let the name fool you — the Event App is available on any platform via a browser or our iOS and Android apps.
The Event App has over 20 unique features, including Agendas, Live Streaming, Video Rooms, Sponsors and Exhibitors, Q&A and Polling, Maps, and much, much more. The Webex Events platform also has the flexibility to integrate with an enormous number of third-party websites, platforms, and services upon request.

Branded Mobile App
Everyone can use the Webex Events App mobile solution at no additional cost. If you want a mobile app customized with your branding that only shows your events, a Branded Mobile App is the option for you!
Use your own custom branding, color choices, and login format so the entire event experience is unified from end to end. You'll work with our Branded Apps team along the way to build and submit the app to the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

The Lead Retrieval by Webex Events app turns every booth at your in-person venue into a supercharged lead generator! Sponsors and exhibitors use their iOS or Android phones 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 revel in ROI.
Learn more about this amazing solution in our Introduction to Lead Retrieval article.
Live Display is perfect for engaging attendees with event information on screens throughout the venue. This display gives in-person attendees the same branded experience no matter where they are.
You juggle enough, so Live Display is designed to be one of the simplest event tools you'll ever use, leveraging content that you and your attendees have already created in your Event App to deliver a seamless, maintenance-free experience.
