Live Events - How to enable multiple presenters going live at the same time to be more interactive?
Good day! Similar to a Zoom webinar, it would be great if multiple presenters/speakers can go live at the same time to make the event more interactive. By way of example, similar to a talk show where you have a host and a couple of guests and so the live audience can witness an interactive event where multiple speakers can be seen in the one screen at the same time or have that option that whoever speaks can immediately be seen on the screen rather than the current manual way of updating the Queue screen, sending it live and starting it in the Live event screen to give way to different speakers. Hope this makes sense. Any feedback, guidance or comment is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I hope the feature is available soon.
Though the feaature is not yet available but would suggest you one idea, Keep one more laptop with you and loged in as presenter, Once Panel Discussion Start ,
Share the screen of this presenter and first put in queue and than send for live frame, you would be able to see all presenter on single screen .
This will work fantastically
Multiple presenters on screen like a Teams meeting. This is needed.

Just to Hack this panel view where you want to send multiple presenter view live in Teams live event, what you can do is organize teams video conference and share that screen with Teams Live Event with include system audio. That should be all :)
But its not standard way of communication. Eagerly waiting for this feature to be developed ASAP by Microsoft Teams...one vote from my side !!!!

This is much needed feature. Teams is good, but it can be better. The Product Team should consider this important feature which helps organizations, especially in this situation where most of them work remotely. The communications via Live event is much needed in large organization. Leadership team wants to address large audience through live event, but it sad only one person go live at a time. Please give high priority to this feature.
I am desperate for this. I love Teams Live events however it is frustrating only being allowed to have one presenter viewed at a time.
This is proving to be a 'must have' when comparing to competitors like GoToMeeting. As we progress towards COP26 and related climate change events that feature panel discussions that look to get engagement from all interested parties, having to manage separate MS Teams meetings and then feeding them into a Live Event is way too complex than it should be.
Agree - a panel view would be very helpful. Our exec team is all remote and we are going to do a 'town hall' style Live Event. Would be helpful to have all 8 of us 'visible' to the audience.
I agree. I work for a District Library and our virtual programs often involve a panel discussion or a moderator and key speaker. It would be much more convenient for attendees and easier for producers/hosts if multiple speakers could be seen and heard at a time.
