Event Attendee Roles

You can now specify a Role for each Attendee of an Event in ExhibitDay.

Assigning Roles to Event Attendees

To assign a Role to an event attendee (under the event [Staff] tab), click on the edit drop-down next to the attendee; then, select the “Specify Role” option.

Event Attendee Role

Default Attendee Roles for Users and Resources

A Default Event Attendee Role can be specified for each user/resource in your ExhibitDay Workspace (under Workspace Settings > Users & Permissions). If a user/resource has a Default Event Attendee Role specified, they will automatically be tagged as that role the next time they are added as an Attendee of an Event (under the Event [Staff] tab).

Adding Custom Event Attendee Roles

If there are additional roles that you would like to include in your ExhibitDay Workspace, you can add your own custom roles (under Workspace Settings > Customize Event Fields > Customize Event Attendee Roles).

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.

Adding Virtual Events

When adding a new event, you can now choose the format of the event (In-Person or Virtual).

Tagging Existing Events as Virtual
