What happens when a participant registers on Airmeet when integration is enabled?
As soon as participants register for an event on Airmeet where Mailchimp has been enabled and mapped to a Mailchimp audience, the registrant’s details are added on Audience. With that, on Mailchimp, you can send out customized emails to your registrants.
Let’s read about the above steps in detail.

Points to Keep in Mind
Participants registered for the Airmeet Event before enabling this integration will not automatically be added to Mailchimp. Instead, you have to export from Airmeet and upload those participants in Mailchimp.
Sometimes MailChimp rejects an email id from untrusted domains and role-based emails, which can result in a mismatch in contacts added vs registrations.
eg: Invalid/blocked domain - "....@yopmail.com" which gets blocked/rejected by MailChimp.
Airmeet sends an email to participants on registration and another email when the event is about to start. If you wish to use Mailchimp to send emails to your participants, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to disable participant emails on registration and event reminders.
