If you're hosting an event with multiple dates, locations, and/or times, create multiple ticket types to represent the different event options. From there, you'll also want to hide the start/end date of the overall event so your attendees don't see the incorrect date listed on their tickets (if you choose to have them print tickets.)

TIP: To create more than one eblink{ticket type=>https://www.eventbrite.ie/support/articleredirect?anum=3290}, you’ll need to use the eblink{Professional or Premium packages=>https://www.eventbrite.ie/support/articleredirect?anum=40418}.

NOTE: If your event is being held at the same location, simply eblink{add the dates and times to your event schedule=>https://www.eventbrite.ie/support/articleredirect?anum=3467} instead.

Edit the details for your event listing.

1. Start creating a new event.

The Create button is located in the header at the top of the page. Look to the top-right of the screen and click to begin creating your event.

2. Scroll to Step 1: Event Details.

Click Timezone & date settings under the Date & time section where you set the overall Starts and Ends dates and times.

3. Hide the start and end date and time on your event.

Event Page Settings is the second section in the Date & Time Settings window. "Display start time on event page" is the first option below this section, followed by "Display end time on event page" and "Display time zone on event page."

Un-check "Display start time on event page" and "Display end time on event page" to hide the date and time.

TIP: To reference what an Eventbrite ticket looks like, click eblink{here=>https://www.eventbrite.ie/support/articleredirect?anum=3687}.

NOTE: The benefit of hiding the start and end date/time on your registration page is that when your attendees print their tickets, they'll refer to the "Type" section to see the event, location/venue, and date/time they're registered for (versus the 'Date + Time" section).

4. Add information for each event to your Event Description.

Step 1: Event Details is the first step on the Edit page. Event Description is the fifth section and appears above Organiser Name.

A good format to consider is: Event Title: Location/Venue Name: Date/Time Address/Location Information Link to Map (optional) Details of the event

PRO TIP: Update this information under eblink{Order Confirmation=>https://www.eventbrite.ie/support/articleredirect?anum=3281} on the Manage page also. Doing so will clearly communicate the specifics of your event from the moment the attendee reaches the event listing to the moment they receive the order confirmation email to their inbox.

NOTE: Repeat the format for each event represented by the tickets you'll create in Step 2: Create Tickets.

Create a ticket for each event.

1. Scroll to Step 2: Create Tickets.

Step 2: Create Tickets is the second step on the Edit page.

Select Free, Paid, or Donation to add tickets to your event. Create a ticket for each event date and location.

Create a ticket for each event that has it's own date and location.

PRO TIP: Consider using the following format for the name of each ticket to add clarity: "Event Title: Location/Venue Name: Date/Time".

Manage the privacy settings for your event listing.

1. Mark your page as public or private.

Scroll down to Step 3: Additional Settings to manage the privacy settings for your event listing. Public events are: • Indexed by major search engines (like Google, Yahoo!, and Bing) • Made available to our distribution partners, like Eventful • Listed in our public event-search directory, making it easy to find by event seekers. If your event isn't open to the public, choose "Private page" to view the different privacy options.

TIP: To keep things exclusive, you can even eblink{password protect your event listing=>https://www.eventbrite.ie/support/articleredirect?anum=5274}, make the event eblink{invitation only=>https://www.eventbrite.ie/support/articleredirect?anum=3462}, and/or eblink{add a special access code to reveal hidden tickets=>https://www.eventbrite.ie/support/articleredirect?anum=3922}.

1. Click Save or Make Event Live.

The Save, Preview, and Make Event Live buttons are located at the top of the page.
