Virtual Events FAQs

Review the frequently asked questions about virtual events.

Can attendees dial in to the virtual event?

Can I record a virtual event?

Can I run overlapping or parallel sessions?

In order to run overlapping or parallel sessions (e.g., three webinars at the same time) during a virtual event, you will need multiple GoTo Webinar accounts. Please reach out to your account manager to buy more licenses or contact sales.

Is there a registration limit for an event?
