The venue for your event can be quickly found by typing the venue name or address. As you type, suggestions will appear. Selecting an item will show the full name of the venue, the address (according to Google's location services), and a map for the pin point for this location. It is recommended that you confirm that all of these items are correct for your location before moving on to the next step.
If the "Virtual Event" option is selected, then only a city, state location is required. This may seem unnecessary if an event is virtual, but an event requires a pin location for our marketing algorithms to work properly. Therefore, we require a promoter for a virtual event to select a geographic location. It is best to select this location based on how they intend to market the event.
If the location on the map is wrong, then use "Reset Location" to clear the results. This will show the search option again and you can try searching by venue name or address.
If the location search has provided the correct pin but wrong name or address, you can use the "Edit Location" option to change the text of the venue location. Once you have edited the text for the location, click "Save".
Note: editing the text of the address will not change the pin location. If the pin location is not correct, then you must 'reset location' and attempt another search for the proper location.
If a yellow text box appears, it may tell you that "Your event will not be published in (name of publication) because it is outside of their coverage area." In this case, if you post the event with the selected location, then the event will not appear on the calendar you are currently using. More details are found in the article, "Where is my event?", about where your event might be and why it is posted to a different calendar based on location.
