Any prblems, things to watch out for, with a 24 hour webinar?

I have been asked to set up a 24 hour webinar - never had one even close to that length.

All the previous ones were either 30 minutes or one hour.

Is there any problem running a 24 hour webinar?
Anything specific to watch out for/

Second question related to that - is there any way to set this up so other organizers who may have had their webinar scheduled in that 24-hour time frame can't get in and disrupt that one-time only 24 hour session?
Right now it seems that if another organizer starts a webinar any existing webinar is automatically terminated.

Hi Kurt,

There are a few things to keep in mind:
  • The presenter cannot be inactive for long periods of time or the session can time out.
  • There needs to be at least one attendee connected at all times or the session will time out.
  • Attendees are capped at 130% of your capacity. This means if you have a lot attendees disconnecting and others joining, you will reach this cap quickly and no additional attendees will be able to join.
GoToWebinar accounts are not designed to be shared, so if you have others logging in to the same account, they will have the ability to start another webinar which will automatically end the current webinar in progress. Each GoToWebinar organizer account entitles you to host one webinar at a time. There is a warning displayed, but not everyone pays attention so quite often people cut off each others webinars.
