3.  In Event Modules, toggle ON the modules you would like for your event. You can toggle on:

    • Networking Modules- the different networking features attendees can utilize to connect with other attendees
  • Based on your event, you can keep it simple with these two modules or add on more event modules, like an Expo Hall or an Agenda page. To do so, click Add Module and add a new module of choice.  

Click Next: Collaborators when finished.

After inviting your collaborators, they will populate below with their respective information. Here, you can toggle their permissions level, making them either an Admin (can manage the event, view analytics and download the attendee list) or a Collaborator (can manage event sessions and settings; cannot view analytics or attendee list.)
