The host of an event has a tremendous influence on its success, both in terms of drawing power and overall impact. Did you know that Visit gives you the ability to include host information to the booking process? 

This article goes over the simple steps to begin sharing host information with prospective attendees. 

Getting started

Begin by heading to Settings > Event Hosts. Though you're able to create hosts inside your event/ sessions, this area will allow you to add to/ amend or remove existing hosts. 

To add a new host, click the + New Host button in the top-right of the screen.

From here simply add the personal details for your host including Title, Name, Email and Position. You can also add a short Biography of the speaker - giving you the opportunity to give a synopsis of your host's career or qualifications. 

The Avatar option gives you the ability to upload a profile picture which will be visible to users clicking on the event/ session on either the event field or RSVP page.

Lastly, specifying a website URL, Twitter handle or LinkedIn profile page will allow prospective attendees to connect with their host prior to the event. 

Once finished, click the Save button in the bottom-right to finish creating your host. 

Adding your host to your event

Open the event you'd like to add a host to, hit the Edit tab and look for the Host field. Add one or multiple hosts from the dropdown, or click the link below the field to create a new host profile then and there. 

Looking to add a host to a specific session? Click the Sessions tab, find your session and click to Edit Session. You'll find the Host field on the Details tab.
