How to disable the main areas of an event - Reception, Stage, Session, Expo, People

  • Updated


Organizers can now temporarily disable event areas - Reception, Stage, Sessions, Networking, Expo - in order to control access to these event areas.

This can be done anytime before or during the event without any loss of settings or data. For example, if you set up 50 Expo Booths before the event begins and decide to hide them from the Registration/ Reception area or the event itself, you can disable the Expo area and re-enable it at the desired time without losing any settings or data.

Note: Enabling or disabling an event area during a live event will require Attendees to refresh the page in order to see the change.

Tip. If you're hosting a simple event and all the information is already listed on the registration page, you can disable the Reception area to allow attendees to access the event and land directly on your live content (e.g. Stage).  

Go to the Event Dashboard > Setup > Basics. Here you'll see the Event Areas.

Click the checkbox to enable or disable any of your preferred event areas. Hit Save.

Note: If you leave only one event area enabled, the left side navigation menu will be hidden in the online event venue.
