Goldcast… or Welcome?

Finding the right solution for superior webinars and engaging virtual and hybrid events

Goldcast makes it easy to host webinars and virtual and hybrid events with professional-quality video — without the need for any special skills. While Welcome has powerful native video production features, it can be cumbersome to use, and it doesn't have the marketing-friendly tools and analytics that most people demand from their virtual events.

Effortless event show-running

Take the work out of events with simplified back-stage management. Our simple yet powerful interface makes it easy for moderators to manage engagement tools, screen share, slides, and videos. Meanwhile, speakers can meet backstage — and even on the mainstage — and get ready to speak without risking interrupting another presenter.

Lite mode for remote attendees

Give every attendee a professional and engaging experience, no matter where they are. Goldcast offers a lite mode for attendees with limited bandwidth or a patchy internet connection, so they can still enjoy your rich event content. Welcome offers no such option.

Sales and marketing integrations

Easily sync your event data with the most popular sales and marketing tools, including Marketo, Hubspot, and Splash. Beyond our native integrations, Goldcast offers powerful, flexible webhooks that make it easy to connect with any part of your sales or marketing tech stack, such as sending gifts through Alyce or Sendoso, or triggering emails though Outreach.

What Goldcast Customers are Saying

Nina Butler, Director of Event Experience, Alyce

I was blown away by the feature set with an intuitive interface. It was extremely easy to use from an administrator's perspective and a speaker's perspective. If you are a data geek like me, the post-event dashboards to drive pipeline are really impressive.
