Teams Webinar participant limit, 300 vs 1000 people

DS 1 Reputation point


Could someone please help? The more I did research, the more confusion.
I've Microsoft 365 Business Standard, and now I'm planning to organize a Webinar using MS Teams.

Some articles and documentation said I can have only 300 participants,
while some other said it's up to 1,000 participants.

Expected participants are around 500 people so I need to plan what should I do next.
