Select Create.

Next, you will enter a name for the chat group along with the option to target which attendees have access to this chat.

Chat groups can be targeted by attendee type, session, or sponsor to allow for easy audience grouping. For example, you may want to create a dedicated chat group for all attendees type 'VIP'. 

If you would like your message to be informational only you can tick set chat group as read only. This is used most effectively to share updates and announcements with specific groups of people. 

Once created, the attendees that have access to this chat group will find it under the Personal tab of the event chat window. Here they can also create their own additional chat groups as well!
