Description Webex meetings are your classic video conferencing tool. Each person is able to share their camera, content, and speak at any time.  You would use Webex meetings for any situation where you want everyone to be able to communicate and share content.  If you want to hold an event for a larger audience where only a few select individuals or panelists can speak and share content then this is the best choice. You would use Webex Events if you want to host a virtual conference. Zoom meetings are ideal for hosting interactive sessions where you’ll want to have lots of audience participation or break your session into smaller groups. Webinars are comparable to a virtual lecture hall or auditorium. Webinars are ideal for large audiences or events that are open to the public. Typically, webinar attendees do not interact with one another. Though Zoom provides options for you to get more social with your attendees, your average webinar has one or a few people speaking to an audience.
