PopStage vs. Zoom

More than plain video grids

Bring your workshops to life with planned interactive activities
Spatial waiting rooms

Provide an open space for your participants to interact with each other before your workshop begins.

Simple, yet powerful tools

No more switching tabs

From pre-workshop planning, in-session facilitation, and iterating post-workshop, we've got it covered!
Workshop editor

Easily organize your activities in your agenda using drag and drop.

Q&A

Participants can post and vote on questions they want answered throughout the workshop.
