MeetingPlay Join Enables Large Group Collaboration at Virtual and Hybrid Events


Stay in touch with us! Be alerted of new products and news.

A big reason people attend live events is to learn from their peers and create community through idea-sharing. While networking and small-group collaboration are accomplished virtually through AI matchmaking, 1-on-1 video chat, and collaboration rooms, the event community continues to scratch their heads on how to successfully solve face-to-face, large group collaboration in a virtual or hybrid setting.

To host successful large group collaboration, MeetingPlay is excited to announce Join – a powerful session format that combines native live video and chat to enhance collaboration and communication.


Large Group Virtual Collaboration, Solved.

Hosting too many participants on camera in a virtual breakout can actually distract from the goals of the session. Important individual contributions may go unnoticed and keeping conversations on-topic can prove challenging even for experienced moderators. In other instances, event organizers may wish to spotlight specific individuals in front of their peers but don’t have an effective way to do so.

MeetingPlay’s native Join feature gives every session participant a voice and ensures individuals with great ideas are brought to the forefront of the conversation. With Join, it’s easy to host real-time virtual collaborative sessions with up to 250 participants in an organized, engaging way.

Moderate Group Video and Audio

In a Join session, attendees can raise their hand to express their wish to go on-camera. Moderators can bring individual participants on-camera to interact via live video, ask questions, and share their ideas with the members of the group. Although there may be many participants, each person has the opportunity to feel connected and be seen as a valued member of the session. If attendees are uncomfortable being brought on camera, they can still actively participate and collaborate with the live chat and Q&A features.
