Get started as a Zoom Events admin

As a Zoom Events admin, you have access to purchasing Zoom Events licenses and managing users using Zoom Events licenses. The admin can assign a license to a user to allow them to publish events from the user-created Zoom Events hub.


During a Zoom Event, the number of sessions is equal to the number of licenses available for Zoom Events. If an event host is licensed for 1,000 participants in Zoom Events, they can have a maximum of 1,000 people in their webinar or meeting at any one time. The maximum number of participants for a meeting session is 1,000, even if the host has a Zoom Events license for more than 1,000 participants. Meeting capacity is determined by the Zoom Meeting License Capacity number if the meeting is scheduled outside of Zoom Events and the meeting is scheduled outside of Zoom Events.
