The functionality of Live Events is great for connecting people in different geographic regions. However, due to the way some international companies have set themselves up with Microsoft, they may not be all under one tenant organization (or at least not yet) due to historic reasons. From a communication perspective, it's risky to open up a Live Event as "public" to reach these international employees, because it poses security risks of actual outsiders getting in. If there is a way to permit certain tenants to join in Live Events (as part of setup), this could reduce the risk and ensure reach to international regions.
