Conference call with 3CX
In many cases, guests will use the conference phone hardware to dial into externally hosted conference calls created via their own corporate platform such as Google Meet, MS Teams, Zoom etc... (See details below on how to dial into a Teams, Meet, or Zoom call) However, for guests looking to host a conference call using the hotel’s phone system, this is also possible and requires at least 24 hours notice.
For help scheduling a conference call for a guest, please contact contact firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the following information:
The extension of the conference phone that will be used to host the meeting. This is important as the meeting will only start when the ‘host’ joins the call.
The time, date & duration of the call
The IS team will schedule the call and provide the unique Pin. This Pin is required for guests to join the call.

When you hear the welcome message, dial 79999
When prompted, enter the meeting Pin
You will now be connected to the meeting
