Set the Featured Image

You can upload your own images directly, or select from a list of preloaded stock images.

If you’re using your own images, be sure they are blurry or hard to view. We recommend a 16:9 aspect ratio when uploading to ensure the images fits properly.

Select Your Categories

Choose the three best categories that represent your event. Of the three categories, select the best one as the main category by setting it to “primary.” 

This helps us better set up your event link. But don’t worry, your event will still be discoverable in all three selected categories.
