What is Airmeet?

Airmeet overview

Airmeet – a platform, which helps you to host virtual events.

On September 15th 2020 Airmeet announced $12M funding, led by Sequoia Capital India.

Airmeet is not just a free tool, which helps you to organize online events. It is sooo much more.

The first thought about this space is obviously Zoom. But, I will try to show you in this quick overview, that Airmeet is in fact is better and much cheaper than Zoom for organizing large online events.

Airmeet – #1 software for large virtual events, job fairs, networking parties, large conferences

Imagine you need to host a large virtual job fair, with at least 250 attendees.

Well first, Airmeet is free for up to 300 attendees and 2 hosts per event. 😉

Airmeet is a great tool for conducting virtual events, webinars, job fairs, holiday networking parties and all other types of online meetings.

By the way, these are other features included in a completely free plan:

  • Single-stage

  • Sequential sessions

  • Social lounge networking

  • Unlimited event duration

  • Unlimited number of events

Free version of Airmeet suits perfectly for small and medium-sized events, webinars or meetups. The fact that this tool is absolutely free for up to 300 attendees is really incredible.

Second, for your imaginary job fair, you can organize a virtual stage, create a list of speakers and sessions, customize event page.

In fact your event page might look like standard Eventbrite page. Just, your event is completely virtual.

Third, Airmeet offers an absolutely amazing feature, called Social Lounge – a virtual ballroom, where guests can engage with each other. It is possible to enable Virtual Speed Networking – participants can virtually meet each other for short periods of time.

That’s a perfect combination of features for a large virtual job fair.

It would be much harder to organize this type of event with for example Google Meet.

With an upgraded Airmeet ($99 per month), you will have access to these features:

  • More than 300 attendees per event

  • Unlimited hosts

  • Multiple stages

  • Parallel sessions

  • Exhibition booths

  • Event branding & sponsorship

  • Event analytics

  • HD recording (Coming soon)

  • Transcription support (Coming soon)

Airmeet Social Lounge

Another fantastic feature in Airmeet is Social Lounge – a virtual ballroom which can be customised & arranged as per an event organiser’s requirement.

You can think of virtual Social Lounge as main stage for online networking. You can join virtual tables and engage with other conference members.

Imagine an old-school job fair, where big companies want to hire the best talent on campus. You would have representatives of each company standing near their boost and trying to talk with as many graduates as possible.

Well, now you can easily join these tables virtually!

Just click Join and you will engage with participants at the virtual table.

It is also possible to customize Social Lounge and adjust it for your needs: change Title, Subtitle, enable or disable speed networking.

Speed networking allows participants to meet one-on-one with other participants for a limited time. When enabled, Speed Networking will become visible and open to all the participants at the Social Lounge. 

Social Lounge is one of the main features in Airmeet, which distinguishes it from other similar online conferencing tools.

Backstage mode

You can then switch to the Backstage mode.

From here you can start session (button in the top right), present, share screen, adjust audio/video settings, record your session.

It is also possible to adjust audio/video settings or assign host to another person.

Backstage looks like a familiar Zoom or Google Meet interface.
