Airmeet’s USP is its "Social Lounge" which enables participants to move freely between virtual conference tables for serendipitous encounters with interesting, like-minded people. This coupled with a loaded live broadcast experience makes Airmeet the default choice for virtual events & webinars. This landscape is rooted in Airmeet's vision to help create spontaneous human connections, online.
