Essential, Pro, and Suite-level Organizers can utilize EventBuilder's powerful Registration and Reporting tools to create In-Person Events for seminars, courses, conferences, meetings, and off-sites.
Building In-Person Events:
First, navigate to your Events from your dashboard:
From your Events list, click 'Create New Event'
This will take you to your Event Detail's Schedule section:
For Event Type, select 'Live In-Person Event:'
Once you select 'Live In-Person Event,' the options for scheduling and providing details, including venue name and address, will appear below the 'Select Registration Layout' section:
Enter day/time and venue information. Click on the green '+' to add additional days/times (if applicable.)
Next, add Presenters, Moderators, and/or additional Organizers.
Presenters and/or Moderators will be displayed on your Registration page. Additionally, adding Presenters/Moderators/Organizers to your In-Person Event will grant them access to the Registrant area in EventBuilder, where they can assist Attendees with check-ins, on-the-fly changes, and attendance tracking.
Three Tips For In-Person Events Best Practices
EventBuilder recommends customizing two additional areas in your Event build to ensure a seamless Attendee experience for in-person Events:
- Customize and update the calendar invitation content to ensure all pertinent information regarding the Event is included.
- Customize your Event's Registration Page Action Button Labels to reflect language appropriate for In-Person Events.
- If you are hosting more than one occurrence of an in-person Event and would like the Events to appear on a Listing Page, we advise Organizers to disable 'Add to Calendar' button on the Registration Confirmation and Event Reminder emails.
