Please note that the following answer describes the Steps for Conference format events only. In Meetup format, the options may differ slightly. 

Use the Airmeet dashboard to modify your event as per your requirements.

Step 1: Go to the dashboard. (www.airmeet.com >sign in> Dashboard)

Step 2: Click on "Create Event" from the top right side of the page.



Step 3: Select "Conference"  and fill up the event details.



Step 4: Once your Airmeet event has been created, it will land you up into the event dashboard, where the setting up of the event is being done. The event dashboard includes multiple tabs which help in building up your event.

a) Basic info: 
This section of the dashboard includes the information which is shown on the event landing page, such as the landing page banner (promo image), details of the event, event description, and the link of the event which is being sent to the audience after setting up the event.,


b) Event Entry: 
This section of the dashboard allows the event organizer to manage the attendee entry.

Here the event organizer has three choices:

1. Anyone can enter in just 2-steps with a unique link: 

This event entry will allow the event participants to enter the event hassle-free without requiring OTP or sign in. The unique event access link will be sent to the email address provided by the registrants.


Refer to the following article for detailed information: How to set up a 2-steps email authentication entry rule for participants?


2. Only people who are invited can enter

People on the participant list can enter the event using their unique links.

An event organizer can use this option to restrict event access to specific people. The event organizer needs to upload a list of authorized attendees.


Only the attendees (imported emails ) specified on this list are allowed to enter the event, and other people who have your event link but are not included in the CSV will not be able to join the event. They will get a message saying that the event is private.


Send an invite via email.

After uploading the list, the event organizer will have two ways to invite their participants:

  1. Send participants the event link, and only those included in the CSV file uploaded will be able to attend your event.

  2. Send every participant a unique link via email.



Refer to the following article for detailed information: How to set up event entry rules for attendees?


3. Anyone can enter after sign in: Login is mandatory. Use this to verify the email address of attendees and manage abuse effectively.

An event organizer can use this option to capture email and other information about the attendees. The attendees are required to log in with their email and then fill the event registration form.

Share the event link with your target audience only, as anyone who has this event link would be able to enter the event. Email addresses will be shared with the event organizer and provided in the event analytics report.


This option also helps in managing abuse. You can also block abusive attendees during the event, and they won’t re-enter the event with the same email address.


4. Anyone can enter without sign inShare the event link with your target audience only, as anyone who has this event link would be able to enter the event. 

The attendees would be required to enter their basic details on the event registration form while entering the event, displayed on the attendee badges during the event.



Refer to the following article for detailed information: How to set up event entry rules for attendees?

    g) Sponsors/Event Partners:
    The event organizer can add sponsors/event partners for their event and arrange them in different tiers. Sponsors are visible on the event landing page and on reception (only in the default reception layout) for the organizer to promote them.

    The event organizer can add or delete the sponsors and also manage the tiers from here. You can create your own customized tiers by default. Airmeet provides Gold, Silver, Bronze tier for convenience purposes, which can again be edited/rename by the organizer according to their convenience.


    The maximum number of tiers that can be created is 6.
    The maximum number of sponsors each tier can have is up to 50.


     

     
    h) Stage Backdrop: 

    Add a zing to your event experience with a static backdrop on stage to emphasize the look and feel. 
    Add as much as the stage backdrop for your event and give all your sessions a unique look and feel for your audience to view. You can also add an event theme or sponsor logo at top of the banner to give more visibility.

Step 5: Preview & Start your Airmeet events

Preview Airmeet: 
To make your event more appealing, you would want to set up your virtual tables and booths with different names and logos, or even dedicate certain tables for certain people or groups. With Airmeet’s new feature, you can custom them and make them ready before your big day without starting your event.




Reference: Setup your Airmeet in preview mode without starting the event


Start Airmeet: 
Once everything is set to go live, the event organizer can start the event by clicking on "Start Airmeet" either from the dashboard or within the Airmeet when in the preview state. Attendees wouldn't be able to enter the event until you start the Airmeet. 



Pause Airmeet:  

The event organizer can pause the Airmeet to restrict entry for attendees from the dashboard temporarily.



Restart Airmeet:  

The event organizer can restart the Airmeet from a pause state so that attendees can join back in the event. Restart Airmeet can be done from the dashboard and as well as from inside the event by the event organizer.





End Airmeet:  

The event organizer can end the Airmeet to restrict entry for attendees from the dashboard permanently.

Note: Once the event is marked completed by clicking on the "End Airmeet" button, the event can't be restarted again. Kindly use this once your event is completely over.
