Roundtables and Boardrooms are small-group video meetings enabling participants to connect with other attendees, speakers, and sponsors.
This article explains how to create sponsored Roundtables and Boardrooms from the Events Builder. Topics include:
- Create Meeting
- Provide Meeting Details
To create a sponsored Roundtable or Boardroom, log in to the Events Builder and select your event. Before creating your meeting, ensure that either sponsored Roundtables, Boardrooms, or both have been enabled in General Settings.
Once the appropriate meeting type has been enabled, click Pages > Sponsors on the left navigation panel. Click the ellipses on a sponsor, then Manage. Scroll down to the Roundtables section and click Add Roundtable.
Note: Roundtables/Boardrooms need to be enabled for the sponsor before you can create one. To do this, click Edit from the sponsor’s ellipses menu and check the Allow Roundtables or Allow Boardrooms checkboxes.
|Tip: If you would like the meeting provider to be Microsoft Teams or Zoom, create the meeting from the event site.|
Provide Meeting Details
The Create Roundtable page will load and allow you to enter your meeting information.
Select RoundTable Owner
Begin typing a user’s name into this section and select a user from the list that appears to be the Roundtable Owner.
Upload the sponsor’s logo to brand the meeting (maximum file size: 2MB)..
The topic will display as the title of the meeting.
Roundtables and Boardrooms can be private—only invited attendees can join—or public—anyone can join. Private roundtables are only visible to attendees who have been invited to them, but public meetings appear in the Public section of the Roundtables page.
Roundtable / Boardroom
Roundtables allow for up to 6 participants (including the meeting organizer).
Boardrooms allow for up to 15 participants (including the meeting organizer) when Social27 is the meeting provider and up to 30 participants (including the meeting organizer) when Zoom or Microsoft teams is the meeting provider.
Date and Time
Set the meeting date, time, and duration. Unlike meetings created from the event site, the maximum meeting duration for meetings created from the Events Builder is 90 minutes. If you want your discussion to last longer than 90 minutes, you can create multiple meetings and label them Part 1, Part 2, etc.
|Note: If you create a 90-minute meeting from the Events Builder, the meeting’s Join button will disappear from the event site after 60 minutes have elapsed following the meeting start time.|
Set a Time Zone (your country/region's time zone) and Sub Time Zone (your continent's time zone) for the meeting. Both are required to create the meeting.
The meeting tags are the meeting’s Area(s) of Interest. These tags are especially useful for public Roundtables, as this helps attendees search for meetings they might be interested in joining.
Begin typing a user’s name into the Invite people section to reveal a list of user names and add attendees to the meeting.
Roundtables allow for up to 6 attendees (including the meeting organizer). Boardrooms allow up to 15 attendees if the meeting provider is Social27. Meetings powered by Zoom or Microsoft Teams allow for up to 30 attendees.
|Tip: If you would like to create a Teams or Zoom meeting for more than 30 attendees, contact your Customer Success Manager.|
If you attempt to add more attendees than are allowed for the meeting type, you will receive an error message.
Click the toggle below the Invite people section to send email notifications to the meeting owner and invited attendees.
|Note: If attendees would like to attend a meeting that is full, they can watch but not participate in the meeting using the View Meeting functionality.|
The description is optional, but can provide attendees useful information about the meeting’s purpose, agenda, etc.
After you’ve added all meeting details, click the + Save button at the bottom of the page.
