Event Layout Settings

We just released the ability to customize the layout for your events by hiding the tabs that are not needed for each event.

The layout settings for an event can be changed using the [Event Layout Settings] tab (under the extended menu of the event page tab strip)

For example, for virtual events, you may want to hide the Booth, Travel, Assets, and Shipments tabs.

Event Layout Settings

The changes you make to Layout Settings of an event are applied to that event only; they will not affect other events in your Workspace.

The tabs that you hide for an event will be hidden for all users in your Workspace (not just for you).

Pro-tip: When you copy/duplicate an event, the Layout Settings for the event will also get copied over to the new event. So, for future events that require a similar layout, you can simply make a copy of an event with the desired layout.

Note: This feature is only available to ExhibitDay Workspaces that are subscribed to the Premium plan. Customizations to event fields (for all events), can be made under Workspace Settings. For more information about Custom Event Fields, please see this blog post.

Planning Virtual Events

While some trade shows are postponed or canceled indefinitely in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, others are going digital. With the ubiquity of the Internet and availability of online connectivity tools, Virtual Events have quickly become the Event Industry’s primary response to the pandemic.

We are all in this together; and, as always: The Show Must Go On…

We just released the ability to tag your Events in ExhibitDay as In-Person or Virtual.
