Virtual Lobby layouts

When hosting your online event, the Virtual Lobby will allow you to broadcast from a large networking event, a single session or even several simultaneous sessions of individual conversations.

With this tool, it is possible to watch the sessions that you have registered or are interested in, switch rooms, participate in a chat group, or even a one-to-one conversation, just by clicking on the name of the attendee you choose.

How do I select the layout I would like to use?

To select the layout type you would like to use in your Virtual Lobby, you should go to Event > Virtual Lobby > Edit > Lobby layout type.
