Describe Your Event

Use the editor provided to create a description of your Event. The full-featured editor supports images, header and font styles/colors, iFrame, and more. You may edit in the WYSIWYG editor (shown) or click on the 'Source' button on the toolbar to edit HTML directly.

Contact Information

Enter the name and email of your Event's contact. Generally, Organizers take on this role, but it can be assigned to anyone you choose.

The Banner will appear on the Registration Page and at the top of all email communications for the Event. 

The default Banner is set in the Portal-level template. The Portal default cannot be replaced, only overwritten. The 'Clear' button will remove any customized Banner and display the Portal-set default. This step is optional if your Portal-level Template's Banner is sufficient.

To change or add an Event Banner, click on the 'Browse' button.
