How to submit your event?

The first two boxes on the form are your event title and event description.  The event title will be the name of your event and the event description should describe what your event is all about.

Event Title

Your event title is the first thing to get noticed and is the name of your event. To maximize your event’s chances of online exposure, try to avoid a title too short or too long.

Event Description

Your event description will describe your event so you should aim to include a good amount of detail here. The more you include the more likely search engines will give your event online exposure.

This next section covers the time and date section on the events submission form. Here you can select if you want your event to display once or once a week automatically.

 

Start / End date

When setting up the time and date for your event, lookout for the helpful text that changes depending on your selected options. Examples of this text are:

Start/End time: An event every week that begins at 8:00AM on Thursday, repeating until 6th September 2018.

Event Series: This event is from 8:00am to 5:00pm on 6th September 2018.

If you are running an all day event, click the all day event checkbox before selecting your start date. This option doesn’t require times to be set.

If the event finishes on the same day but is not an all day event, you’ll need to include start and end times. First select your starting date and end date, they should both be the same day. Next add your event start and end time, this should update the dynamic text for you to review.

If your event is more then one day, set the end date and time accordingly.
