How many people can attend a Zoom meeting or webinar?

Certainly! Let’s dive into the details of how many participants can attend a Zoom meeting or webinar.

Understanding Meeting Participant Limits

The maximum number of participants in your Zoom meeting depends on your Zoom plan and user type. Here’s a breakdown of the default meeting participant limits per account type:

  1. Basic (Free – 40 Minutes Maximum Duration ):
    • 100 participants
  2. Zoom Pro:
    • 100 participants ( Unlimited Meeting Hour)
  3. Business:
    • 300 participants
  4. Enterprise:
    • 500 participants
  5. Optional Add-ons:
    • 500 participants (or up to 1,000 participants with additional add-ons)


  • A basic user within a Business plan or above inherits the account’s default meeting capacity. For example, a Business account’s default meeting capacity is 300.
  • The meeting participant limit can be increased by purchasing a license (for free/basic accounts), upgrading the current plan, or adding a large meeting add-on.

How to Find Your Meeting Participant Limit

If you’re unsure of your account and user type, follow these steps to find your meeting participant limit:

  1. Sign in to the Zoom web portal.
  2. In the navigation panel, click on Profile.
  3. Scroll down to the Account section, where the number of meeting participants is displayed.

Remember that Zoom webinars have different participant limits:

  • Webinars can accommodate up to 1,000 participants at the same time. If you expect more attendees, consider holding multiple sessions or providing a recording for those unable to attend.
  • For larger webinars, you can purchase a Zoom Webinar license, which can accommodate up to 10,000 participants
