Create A Venue

If your events use separate venues other than your companies own location, then you can set up different venues which can be added to an event. The venues are individual profiles that can be reused again and again for other events. This can save you time and money by not having to re-create the venue or location information multiple times.

The first step is to head to the Venue Manager page via the Event Espresso menu. If for some reason you cannot see this menu item, go to General Settings > Optional Event Settings and make sure “Use the Venue Manager?” is set to Yes.

If you only host events at your company’s location, feel free to skip this step and head on to the Create Question Forms section.

Add a Venue

  1. Click “Add New Venue”.The add new venue button is at the top of the page
  2. Add your venue’s name and address details.
  3. There is also room to add contact information for a contact based at the venue.
  4. Optionally add a description of the venue.
  5. Once you’re happy with your information click “Save”. Your venue will now be available for you to use when you create an event.

When you create a new event or edit an existing event, you will be able to select the new venue you created from the Select from Venue Manager list.

After you select the venue, be sure to click “Save” in the event editor to update and save the venue you selected. Now the venue information you created in the Venue profile will show on the event details page.

The next step is Create Question Forms.
