On occasion a ticket will only be able to be purchased after a purchase has already been made. For example an event may offer "spouse tickets", in this case a pre-requisite ticket would need to be purchased.
Private Event
A private event is more exclusive and more “hidden” than an unlisted event. When you create a private event, Grenadine will give your event a special link that contains a secret token as part of the link.
Public Event
As the name implies, public event websites will be visible by anyone. They can be indexed by search engines and no special URL or password is needed to access public event websites.

Time Constraint Conflicts
When a participant or room is booked too closely for them/it to be prepared for their/the next event. For example is someone is giving a talk until 11:00 and is scheduled to be on a panel in another room beginning at 11:00
Unlisted Event
An unlisted event is not quite public, but not really a big secret either. It’s similar to what you might remember as an unlisted phone number (if you’re old enough to remember what a phone book looks like!). When you mark your event as unlisted, Grenadine will no longer include your event links in event directories. This means that you will need to send out a link to your event to the audiences that need to see it.
The place where the event happens. Below I have listed several links showing that the industry term tend to be "venue" as opposed to "location"
Alternate Term(s): Location
