Customizable Content Area is a powerful tool that brings experience from content to a whole new level: embedding widgets, videos, hyperlinks, file downloads, or extensive descriptions.

Event Organizers can utilize file sharing, organize pdf downloads, embed media content for the Reception page, as well as the event segments: Stage, unlimited Sessions, and unlimited expo Booths.

Types of customizations supported

  • Multiple heading elements (H1-H3, paragraph)
  • Bold, italic, underline, strikethrough formatting
  • Adding color to the text
  • Turning text to a hyperlink
  • Bulleted lists
  • Numbered lists
  • Inserting images stored on your computer
  • Block quotes
  • Inserting media as the URL (links will generate a preview for most popular media: GIFs, social media posts, Spotify, Youtube, Google Maps, etc.)

Note: Please make sure that the links you add are public for the preview to generate correctly. Once you add the URL to the Content Area, the preview will generate automatically for all supported media types.

Customizing the Reception page

The Reception page of an event can contain multiple types of media content, hyperlinks, and Rich Text - you name it!

Once the event is created, organizers should:

  • Open the event dashboard
  • Navigate to the Venue tab > select a segment (Stage, Sessions, Expo) where Additional information will be displayed
  • Fill out the description with Rich Text, hyperlinks, bulleted or numbered lists, quotes, images from your computer or media via the public URL

Once Additional information is added, event attendees will see the Show more information button at the center of the segment, in our example we are in a session. Clicking the button will open an extra view and display Additional information below the segment.

Extra tips

  • The Content Area for the Reception page, as well as Additional information for Stage, Sessions, and Expo can be adjusted by Organizers any time before or during the event
  • Successful Organizers add YouTube links, promo PDFs from any cloud storage, social media links, location on Google Maps, and Spotify playlist links
  • Images added as files from your computer can be resized, left, center, or right-aligned, contain the image caption, and the alternative text
  • In case you want to revert the formatting applied, simply use keyboard combinations Ctrl + Z on Windows or command + Z on macOS
