If you're hosting an event that doesn't require tickets, turn off PDF tickets. To get started, go to your Event Dashboard and select "Order Options". Then choose "Order confirmation" and uncheck the box next to 'Include printable tickets in all orders". Be sure to let your attendees know they don't need to show a digital or printed ticket to enter your event.
