How to start more than 13 simultaneous sessions with zoom events?


I have purchased a 500-person license for zoom events and am trying to set up 24 meetings and one webiner at the summit. There are 15 sessions held at the same time. How many sessions does the license support at the same time? Can each session be started by the main speaker with a free license?

I read an article written by David Ball of Product Marketing Specialist on his blog.
Multi-day and multi-track support: Spread your event over five days and support up to 13 concurrent sessions

I don't really understand the meaning of multi-track. What does the track manage?
I can register more than 13 sessions in the hub, but what happens when I actually start?
Is it possible to start 15 simultaneous sessions with 13 main speakers ( 13 free license) and the other 2 main speakers( 2 paid license)?

What upgrade plans do you have to start more than 13 concurrent sessions?

I tried to call the sales rep in Japan many times to ask for a license, but the sales rep does not connect at all. I've been calling for over 8 hours. 

I'm trying to contact the technical center in Japan with the ID and code that signed up for zoom events, but I'm respond that you can't connect to the technical person in charge.

It's very troubled. Help me.

Hey @Yusuke, just to clarify you can have up to 13 sessions going on at once that'll need to be individually hosted. The Hosts can choose from 3 different event types: EventSummit, or Conference and you will need to ensure you meet the prerequisites to create and host. 


Here you can look into these KBs on Zoom Events 👉


Hope this helps!

Hi! So just to clarify this info, can I run an example by you? So 13 sessions can be hosted all at the same time. However each session (a meeting) has to be Started/Hosted by a different host. So for example, a Primary Speaker can sign on to the Zoom Events Lobby, and find their session. They can click Start and then host their session. However (unless they have a really short session) they must check that they have a licensed account, so that their session can be longer than 40 mins, etc. Is this right?


And these licensed users don't have to be associated with the primary organizational account hosting the Zoom Event itself, do they? Just licensed.


Hi @Yusuke @lilyh 


How did you get on with the above? Did you manage to find a solution to the multiple-session problem?


I need to run up to 10 parallel sessions for an upcoming conference on zoom meeting.


I am currently trying to determine if it would be possible for me to schedule these myself and assign alternate hosts to each session. Would all of these sessions be able to run concurrently as long as they are started by an alternate host?
