Broadcast meeting as live event
The UI for having a meeting is much more user-friendly than the one for live events, and since we do more meetings than live events, it would be nice to be able to use the meeting UI for webinars. As there is a 250 person limit on meeting participants, it would be nice to be able to broadcast the meeting to a wider audience with the 30-second buffer delay and Q&A feature that makes live meetings more scalable.
Alternately, since there are several features of live events that have been requested as features of meetings as well (e.g. controlling whose video is displayed to meeting participants), as the two converge in functionality it would be nice to also have them converge in UI.

We would see a lot of value in being able to have an "audience" to a core meeting, who could listen in and ask questions.

I have noticed the increase in demand to transmit videos within meetings in real time to the entire audience, just as it is done in OBS Studio.
