The co-host will have access to all functionalities available to the host that includes:
- Ability to start/stop/pause the sessions.
- Manage stage controls such as mute, pin speaker, remove speaker, etc
- Control stage access through an invite to the stage, raise a hand.
Basically, the Co-Host shares the same rights and controls that the session host has.
Any session in an Airmeet event can have 2 co-hosts in addition to the host.
How to assign a Co-host?
A co-host can be assigned in two ways :
1. Dashboard: Community manager or Community team member (Event Manager) can be made co-host.
Steps to add co-host from the dashboard:-
- Go to the dashboard and choose or create an event where you want to add a co-host.
(airmeet.com >Sign in> Dashboard > Airmeets > Choose Event > View Details > Enter dashboard)
- Go to the Schedule tab, click on +Add an activity, select the type of session, and fill in the session details.
- While creating/editing a session, add a co-host by clicking on the + Add Co-host option in the pop-up.
- Choose your Community team members (Event Manager) by selecting them from the list and add them as co-hosts and click on Save.
Points to Keep in Mind While Adding Co-host From the Dashboard
- Only a Community team member (Event Manager) can be made co-host from the dashboard.

- Co-hosts will show up with the 'host' label on stage.
- Co-host details would not be shown on the event landing page & on the session agenda tab during the event.
2. Session Backstage/Live Stage: Any Community team member (Event Manager) or a speaker can be made co-host from backstage or from the live session. The speaker must be present on backstage/live stage to be made as a co-host.
Adding co-host from backstage/live stage:-
- As a host, join backstage/live stage for the session.
- Click on the three-dot option from the middle bottom of the screen and choose the Manage Co-Hosts option from the menu.
- Select the desired co-host from the drop-down menu listing all the team members and Speakers (1 host + 2 co-hosts).
A pop-up message will inform everyone on stage that a new co-host is added.
Points to Keep in Mind While Adding Co-host From the Backstage
If the Community team member (Event Manager) is host/speaker/co-host for another parallel session, it won't be possible to make their co-host.
To make an attendee a co-host, host, or another co-host need to call the attendee on stage using the invite to stage feature and then make them co-host backstage.
Community team members (Event Manager) do NOT need to be backstage to be made co-host (only speakers).

The attendee joining as Guest/without registration cannot be made co-host.
Co-host details would not be shown on the event landing page & on the session agenda tab during the event.
If the co-host of an ongoing session disconnects and rejoins the event, they would directly enter the LIVE SESSION.
Q. How to remove a co-host?
The host can remove a co-host from backstage by the following steps :
As a host, join backstage or the live stage.
Click on the three-dot option, choose the Manage Co-Hosts option from the menu.
Select the desired co-host from the menu listing all the team members and click on the Remove option.
Q. Why can’t I add one of my guests as my co-host?
If someone has joined the event through Guest Access (without registration), that attendee cannot be added as the co-host.
Q. Can we assign the same co-host for parallel sessions?
A co-host of one session cannot be the host/co-host for another parallel session.
Q. Why doesn't the co-host appear on the event landing page and session agenda tab?
Co-host is a special accessibility feature for an organizer to help him manage the event and session. Thus that's the reason the co-host name or details doesn't appear on the event landing & session agenda.
