Creating a ticketed event

Craft a ticketed event that suites your needs (e.g. a meetup, a workshop, or a concert). Bring your event to life by adding an image that pops and providing guests with key information. For example, let them know what the event is all about with the name, date / time, and description.

      1. Select whether the location is a physical location or online.

    2. Enter your text and tap Done.
  13. Tap Next at the top right.
