How to create an event using our new event creation experience

You can create an event in the new creation experience in just three easy steps: Basic Info, Details, and Tickets. eblink{Log in=>https://www.eventbrite.com/myevents target=_blank} to your Eventbrite account and click “Create Event” at the top to get started.

TIP: Our eblink{new event creation experience=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=38056} isn't available to all event creators at this time. Learn how to create an event in eblink{classic create=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=5035} or Eventbrite Music (eblink{general=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=41415}, eblink{reserved=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=41428}, or eblink{externally-ticketed=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=41525}).

NOTE: Before you create your first event, you need to choose a eblink{package=>https://www.eventbrite.com/organizer/pricing} (if you haven’t already). If you want to create more than one ticket type, you’ll need to use the eblink{Professional or Premium packages=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=40418}.

Enter your event details.

1. Click "Create Event".

eblink{Log in=>https://www.eventbrite.com/myevents target=_blank} to your Eventbrite account and select "Create Event" (at the top of the page). If prompted, click "Select" under New.

2. Basic Info.

• Event Title — Give your event a short, distinct name up to 75 characters long. • Type — Choose a type that describes your event. For public events, this helps attendees find your event. • Category — Choose a category that matches your event. For public events, this helps attendees find your event. • Sub-category — Choose a sub-category that further describes your event. Setting an event sub-category is only available for U.S. events at this time. • Organizer — Select one of your organizers. To add or update an organizer, you need to update the specific eblink{Organizer Profile=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3458}.

TIP: In the Summary, use popular, relevant keywords that attendees would likely type into search engines like Google. That’s known as search engine optimization (SEO) and serves to promote your event to those most likely to register. eblink{Learn how to use SEO for your events=>https://eventbrite.com/blog/boost-your-events-seo-ds00/}.

NOTE: Event tags that appear on your event listing are based on your event location, type, category, and sub-category. You can add up to 10 additional tags.

3. Location.

• Venue — Use the search bar below "Venue" to search for a venue, address, or city. If you select a venue and need to remove it, click the search icon. • Online event — Use for events that occur online only. This helps make it clear to attendees your event is virtual (not in-person). • To be announced - Use temporarily while you decide on a location. Make sure to update after you decide on a location.

4. Date and time.

• Event Starts — When attendees can enter your event. • Event Ends — When attendees should leave your event. • Time Zone — Set to match the region that matches your event location. By default, this information matches the eblink{region/locale settings=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3249} for your Eventbrite account.

NOTE: Need to schedule a recurring event? Use the eblink{classic event creation experience=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3467} for the time being.

5. Save & Continue.

Add information about your event.

1. Details.

If you just finished the “Basic Info” section, you’ll be automatically redirected to the Details page. If you’re starting from a different location, navigate to your Manage Events page, choose the event, and select “Details” from the manage event menu.

2. Main Event Image.

Drag and drop your image or click to upload a JPEG or PNG no larger than 10MB. A couple of notes: • Images with at least 2160 x 1080px (a 2:1 ratio) work best. • You may be prompted to crop your image. Focus on a section of the image and click “Save". • To re-format your main event image, position your cursor on the image and click the formatting icon. • To delete your main event image, position your cursor on the image and click the trash can icon.

Use photos under "Attribution License," which allows for use as long as you give credit to the copyright owner.

3. Description.

• Summary — Write a summary up to 140 characters that describes the most important details of your event and makes it clear to people why they should attend. The summary appears next to your event title on Google, Eventbrite’s eblink{discovery=>https://www.eventbrite.com/d/local}, and eblink{partner sites=>https://www.eventbrite.com/l/distribution/} when the event is Public. • Description — Elaborate on the information you included in your summary. Even a few additional sentences to help attendees get a sense of what they’ll experience at your event like a schedule, sponsors, or featured guests can improve the quality of your event listing.

PRO TIP: Use popular, relevant keywords that attendees would likely type into search engines like Google in your summary. That’s known as search engine optimization (SEO) and promotes your event to those most likely to register. eblink{Learn how to use SEO for your events=>https://eventbrite.com/blog/boost-your-events-seo-ds00/}.

4. Add text, images, and video.

• Add Text — Add a section for additional text. • Add Image — Add a section that functions just like the "Main Event Image" uploader. Multiple JPEG, PNG, and GIF images no larger than 10MB are supported. • Add Video — Add a section that shows a YouTube or Vimeo video. Rearrange text, images, and videos using the up-down arrows. Delete with the trash can icon.

PRO TIP: eblink{Check out our blog to learn how to write an event description that sells more tickets=>https://eventbrite.com/blog/sell-tickets-event-description-ds00/}.

3. Enter your ticket information.

Choose Paid, Free, or Donation and enter your ticket information: • Name — Enter a name for your ticket type. This name appears on your event listing, in your sales reports, and on the PDF/mobile tickets attached to an attendee's order confirmation email. • Quantity — Set the number of tickets available for the ticket type. You can change this number at any time, even after publishing your event and selling tickets. • Price — This is the cost of the ticket, not including any eblink{fees=>https://www.eventbrite.com/organizer/pricing/}. When you enter the ticket price, the “eblink{Include fees in ticket price=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=41407}” option will appear. When selected, the attendee pays just the price of the ticket and the fee(s) are deducted from the price you set (the event creator receives the price of each ticket minus the fees). When not selected, the attendee pays the fee(s) on top of the ticket price. • Sales Start — When attendees can start purchasing the ticket type. By default, your ticket sales start immediately after you publish your event. • Sales End — When attendees can no longer purchase the ticket type. By default, your ticket sales end an hour before your event ends. • Donation — Create a ticket type without a set price and allow attendees to enter an amount . — leave the quantity blank if you want to sell unlimited donation tickets. Donation tickets are valid tickets to enter the event. If you don’t want attendees to receive a ticket in exchange for their donation eblink{turn off PDF tickets=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3303} for the ticket type.

TIP: Eventbrite Music — Use "Display sales status in ticket selection" to show or hide the sales start and end dates on your event listing. Tick to show or un-check to hide.

NOTE: If you choose Free or Donation, the Price field is greyed out. No fees are charged for free tickets; donation tickets are subject to eblink{fees=>https://www.eventbrite.com/organizer/pricing}.

4. (Optional) Select your “Advanced Settings”.

• Description — Describe what attendees receive with the ticket type (2,500 characters or less). The description appears as smaller text below the name of your ticket type. • Visibility — Choose if the ticket type should be “Visible” to the public, “Hidden” from the public, “Hidden when unavailable,” or set a “Custom Schedule”. With “Custom Schedule,” two more fields appear: “Hide Until” and “Hide After”; set a specific time window when the ticket type should be visible to the public. • Tickets Per Order — Set a minimum and maximum number of tickets that an attendee can purchase in a single order. • Sales Channel — Note where tickets should be available (Everywhere, Online Only, or At the door only). Everywhere means tickets are sold on the event listing, eblink{Eventbrite attendee app=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=11000}, and the eblink{Eventbrite Organizer App=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=5870}). Online only means tickets are sold on the event listing and eblink{Eventbrite attendee app=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=11000}. At the door only means tickets are sold on the eblink{Eventbrite Organizer App=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=5870} only.

5. Save & Continue.

If you need to create more ticket types, repeat eblink{steps 2-5=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articles/en_US/Multi_Group_How_To/How-to-create-an-event-using-our-new-event-creation-experience?lg=en_US#3-2} or click "Copy" in the three-dot overflow menu to the right of your ticket. The ability to copy tickets and donations is not available for classic event creation, Eventbrite Organizer (iOS and Android), events with Group Registration enabled, or reserved seating events.

TIP: If you create more than 1 ticket, “Event Capacity” shows on the Tickets page. By default, the total is the sum of the quantities you set for each ticket type. Review and set to accurately represent the total number of tickets available for your event.

NOTE: Review all settings for any copied tickets or donations — 'by ticket type' settings for the event like discount codes, order confirmations, canned and custom questions, registration transfer, and additional terms should all be reviewed.
