Set up an online-only event

Eventbrite LogoUpdated by Devin W

Use Eventbrite to create and host online events. When you create your event, set the location to “Online”. This lets you set up a dedicated online event page to show the links to your webinar, livestream, and other resources attendees need. Only registered attendees can access that page.

<h2 id="01">Set up your online event page</h2> <p>Your “online event page” is a dedicated page for registered attendees.
