Geographic availability for Zoom Events Follow

While access to Zoom Events is generally available worldwide, whether a user can register for and join an event, as well as the ability to host free and/or paid events, is determined by which country or region the user—Host or Attendee—is located in.

A Zoom Events license is required to set up a Zoom Events Hub and to create a summit.

Note: The IP address of an Attendee—not the corporate billing address of the main Zoom account the Attendee is affiliated with (if applicable)—is used to determine if the user will be prevented from registering for an event due to geo-blocking.
