As an event organizer, your Eventbrite listing page needs to stand out ✨. First impressions count, and your event page is often the first thing potential event-goers see.

And there are a lot of potential event-goers on Eventbrite. Last year, more than 200 million people searched for things to do on Eventbrite, with more than 90 million of those buying tickets to unique and local events around the world.

Your event page needs to be eye-catching and informative, capturing visitors’ interest and inspiring them to attend. That’s why we’ve rolled out new features for our event pages. Now it’s easier than ever to create a compelling listing that takes visitors from scoping out to checking out.

Read on to discover the new event-listing features, and how to set up a top-notch event listing page. 

New features that enhance Eventbrite event pages 

From headline to checkout, Eventbrite’s customizable event pages are designed to convert visitors into attendees by letting your attendees know what your event — and your brand — are all about. So understanding the components of an Eventbrite event page will help you build the best listing possible.

Event Page Header GIF

Every event page includes a main event image (you can populate up to 10 images!) or video to make your listing even more dynamic. You can link to a video hosted on YouTube or Vimeo, making it easier to communicate the vibe and feel of your event to attendees.

Our research has shown that, “82% of attendees prefer main event images that show an event’s vibe and atmosphere.” Compelling imagery gives visitors a glimpse of what they’ll experience at your event. Showcase the activity — but don’t forget the vibe. Pro tip: With Eventbrite’s Canva integration, including eye-catching, mood-evoking visuals is a breeze.

The summary on your event page is a short description of your event: think who-what-when-where. This appears at the top of your event page. Clear, concise copy is key.  

Below that, the description adds details, and lets visitors know what to expect from your event. Featured guests or sponsors? Include that here.

To take your event listing to the next level, add these new sections, which will help attendees purchase tickets. 

Event Agenda

Include an agenda on your event page. An itinerary or schedule helps visitors know how your event is structured. We recommend this new section if your event has speakers, performers, or guides (don’t forget the headshots). You can include the time, a description of what will happen, and who will host. 

Event FAQ

And don’t forget the FAQ. In the FAQ section, you can circumvent any questions visitors may have. Have answers about parking, accessibility, or your refund policy? Include them here so event-goers won’t run into any surprises.
