Verkada Fortify Event Is Broken (Now Postponed)

I logged in to check it out - it's not working, half the people say it will be delayed, half say rescheduled to next week, no clarity from Verkada, more than an hour after it was supposed to be started:

Update: It's running now, though, the CEO keynote from what was said in chat did not happen.

But now, it says:

And now they email confirming it is cancelled today / postponed for next week:

Seems Bizzabo is working fine according to their status page?

Also - Bizabbo has $56.5 million in funding according to Crunchbase.

It is interesting that Verkada would just immediately call out Bizzabo rather than explaining the specific issue.

Just received an email saying they are 'excited to see [me] on July 1' though the previous email said rescheduled to July 8th:

I wonder if this would have worked better with a non-hosted alternative? :)

This Verkada salesperson is spinning it into a positive:

Verkada can't even get a live streaming event to work and they expect everyone to put video in the cloud and all there problems go away. Ouch...

Per Verkada, it's not Verkada's fault but their partners:

Do they use their own servers or AWS/Google/Microsoft for the video?

Which video? Hosting video surveillance or for this event?

Sorry I was not specific. The video for the cameras.

They use AWS

New Verkada email does not blame their business partner:

This is great, get the popcorn out.

Fortify is running today, now switched to Zoom:
