  • Primary email: The email you would like to use as the main email address for your event. This email address will be shown in the footer of your public event website

  • Advanced Options: See below
  • Social Media: Here you can link social media pages that relevant to your event to be published on the public event website.

Advanced Options

  • Pre-event starts: On occasion there will be small sessions or informal meetings that take place before the “official” start date of your event.
  • Post-event ends: Sessions that take place after your event has “officially” ended.
  • Time format for publications: Select either the 24-hour (aka military or European) or 12-hour AM/PM (North American style) to show the times of different sessions taking place at your event when they appear on printed documents.

Step 3:

Once you click “save” your event will appear on the main events page in Grenadine staging. Select it to begin planning in earnest.
