One of my clients is looking into run more Virtual events using Team Live events with a couple of guest presenters, out-with their organisation. 

 

My understanding is that if that presenter doesn't already have a teams licence (using Teams Free)  they are not able to join the event as a presenter. 

 

If a users is on Microsoft 365 Business Basic will they have enough permission to be a presenter? As we we thinking of getting a couple of guest laptops that we can send out to the guests in advance of the event as their way to join the event without them needing to subscribe for an account themselves for what will generally be a one of need?

@kev-event-tech Hello Kevin, I believe this page will shed some light at your questions.

 

'Who can attend, create, and schedule live events'

@bec064 that's it very useful although I do wonder if some of the informations is slightly out of date since the change to Microsoft 365. in that article is states 

 

"Note

At this time there aren't any Microsoft 365 Small Business plans that can be used to create and hold Teams live events."

 

However on the plan and pricing comparison for Microsoft Teams https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/compare-microsoft-teams-options#core... 

under the meetings and calling section there it says that "Host online and video conferencing meetings for up to 250 people5 and online events for up to 10,000" is available on the Business Basic licence. 

 

this is what makes me believe it will allow a presenter to join a live event.

 

However a colleague spoke to support and sales and was told different and that it would only work with an enterprise licence

@kev-event-tech Totally understand the confusion. I would say trust the MS docs and not the "sales pages". I just received the same info as your colleague (I had to check it myself as well!).

Hello @kev-event-tech   Microsoft just released its virtual events playbook; you and your client might find it useful.  https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams-blog/the-microsoft-virtual-event-playbook-and...
