Easy to get started

Create an account online and be meeting within 5 minutes.

Creating the account is free, there are no recurring charges and you can cancel the service at any time.

Only pay for what you use.

Easy to use

There’s no apps to download, just dial a telephone number and enter a PIN.

Callers on mobile phones can join the meeting by clicking on a telephone number saved in the meeting invitation or in their address book.

I want to pay for my callers’ telephone charges

When you create an account, we’ll send you a list of telephone numbers.

Most callers in Australia dial our 1800 number, this means your callers can join the meeting free (you will be paying their telephone call costs). This is the most popular way of joining a conference call.

We also have telephone numbers in over 42 countries so that your overseas participants can join your conference call without paying international call charges.

Free recording

Record your conference call at no cost and download the recording minutes later.

Mobile phones

Mobile phone users sometimes have difficulty joining conference calls because the PIN is distorted by poor phone line quality.

HotAir is the only conference call company in Australia that helps callers that can’t enter their PIN. This means there is no longer a reason for your mobile participants to not take part in every conference call.

Who uses HotAir Conferencing?

Our clients include some of Australia’s largest corporations and Government Departments through to the smallest companies and associations.

Sound quality

Using high quality business grade telephone lines (not the internet) is the only way to be sure the sound quality will always be fantastic and the service will always work for everyone.

How am I charged for a conference call?

Meetings are charged per line per second, unlike other conference call providers we do not round up the the next minute.

The more lines connected or the longer the meeting, the more it will cost.

There are no sneaky hidden charges, no monthly fees, flag falls nor minimums, you only pay for what you use.

There is also no surcharge if paying by credit card.

How do HotAir’s prices compare?

A failed conference call is embarrassing and expensive (if you include the costs of the people involved and how long it might take to get them all back together again).

HotAir’s service is focussed on providing a service that always works and has consistently great sound.

Our pricing is half of Telstra’s but will never compare with services that focus purely on price. For most organisations, using a cheap conferencing service is actually the most expensive choice. That’s why so many of our clients have come to HotAir because they need a service that works every time.

What does a typical conference call cost?

If you had five lines calling the 1800 number for a 30 minute conference call, the cost would be:

5 lines x 30 minutes x $0.25 = $37.50 excluding GST. With GST = $41.25

Calls to 1800 numbers are free from landlines and most mobile phones.

We offer cheaper rates out of business hours and to “not for profit” and governmental organisations. Contact us for further information.

Itemised invoices

Invoices show every line in every conference call; the time they connected, the duration of the connection and the cost.

If you have more than one user/meeting facility (conference room), all costs are summarised separately.

Can I have simultaneous conference calls?

If you have multiple users or require simultaneous conference calls we can help.

Your account can be setup with multiple “conference rooms”, there’s no additional cost and you will more easily be able to track costs against cost centres.
