How to join a breakout room meeting?

Breakout rooms are virtual meeting rooms on your event where you can talk to other attendees in a group setting.


Introduction to breakout rooms

➑️ The basics of breakout rooms in Brella: 

  • You can think of breakout rooms as virtual meeting rooms.
  • You can always ask questions through the chat.
  • Each breakout room has a host (event organizer) who has more extensive rights to control the call. This means that they can mute or remove inappropriate behaving attendees from the room at any time.
  • ☝️Not all rooms are open during the whole event, so remember to check the date and the time from the breakout room card. 

How to join a breakout room 

  1. To enter a breakout room, you need to navigate to the 'Breakout' room tab in the event. 
  2. Choose the room from the cards you wish to enter and join the meeting! See a short video on how it happens below.
