Tips and Advice on Conferencing Across the Globe

How to make free international conference calls

People calling internationally would join your conference just like any other participants. The only difference is that they use the international dial-in number assigned to their country. Callers in countries not listed can dial into any of the US-based dial-in numbers, using their usual country calling codes.

  1. You join the conference in exactly the same way as usual
  2. Participants call the relevant country dial-in number from our international list
  3. Everyone enters the same access code that is connected to the host’s account
  4. Start talking!
