Before creating your first event you'll need to create the venue where your event(s) will be hosted. Venues are located in a database meaning you are able to view all of the venues that have been created by event creators in your area. The information that you specify within your venue settings including the location and contact information will be displayed on the event page for each event that you host at this venue. Once your venue has been created you'll be able to create seating charts if you are selling assigned seats or move directly to your event creation if you only intend to sell general admission tickets.
Navigate to the Venues tab in the main menu and click the green "+" icon to begin the venue creation workflow.
You can create a new venue right from the Event Creation workflow using the +Add a Venue button.
Type the name of your venue in the Venue Name field and then enter the address of your venue. A map will populate on the event page of any event that is hosted at this venue, showing ticket buyers exactly where the event is located so make sure the address is accurate!
Add a website for the venue if you have one and add a brief description for the venue. Both of these fields are optional. Click the Continue button to proceed.
Next, add a logo, capacity, and operating hours for your venue. Both the logo and operating hours will be displayed to ticket buyers when this venue is used for an event while the capacity field is strictly for your reference. The capacity you set will never limit the number of tickets you can sell to the venue. Click Complete to save your venue.
If you plan to sell reserved tickets to events at this venue, follow our Seating Chart Creation article to create a floor plan for your events.
