Advertisements are available for you to create (Such as for a sponsor) with links to external websites. You can find in this article how to set them up and manage your adverts.
Available for: in-person events; packages: core, advanced and extensive
Tip: In addition to the conventional 'Randomised' adverts you would usually create (Explained more below), there are 4 other advertising options:
- Dedicated pages
- Company profiles/tags
- Start pages
To find the advertisements feature within the admin panel, hover over the content tab and select 'Ads'.
Before making your advertisements, you need to consider the following:

- 1.Open the home page.
- 2.Click on 'New ad'.
- 3.Complete the fields as described.
- 4.Click on 'Add Advertisement'.
Each advert has two icons to their right (Under actions):
- Edit icon: Click here to make adjustments similarly to when first creating an advert.
- Delete icon: Click here to remove the advert altogether.
When creating new advertisements or editing existing ones, you can choose whether this ad should be displayed in the program overview by clicking on a checkbox.
Make sure that the setting 'Enable ads between program items' is enabled under 'Settings' - 'App settings' - 'Advertisement'.
Your sponsors can be advertised more extensively to your users by making them a dedicated page. Follow this link (Which opens in a new tab) for more information and instructions.
Footers can be made to be displayed at the bottom of every page that also link elsewhere in the app or externally. To make a footer:
- 1.Hover over the settings tab.
- 2.Select 'App settings'.
- 3.Click on 'Advertisement' from the left hand menu.

Your app's start page can be utilised in various ways to advertise anything. Instructions for setting up a start page can be found here. How you can utilise them for advertising purposes are described below:
The tiled start page feature has room for a header image at the top of the page, and this can be utilised as an advertising opportunity.
Aside from tiles, any active menu item can be used as a start page. Take advantage of this for advertising purposes by using a page dedicated to a sponsor, or other advertisement, as the opening page your users see.
There are options when creating a badge for additional content, this can be utilised for a number of things including a space for advertising your sponsor. Read more about creating badges here.
You can upload 3 different images per advertisement:
Virtual event desktop image: Image displayed in the virtual event platform
Virtual event mobile image: Image displayed when accessing the virtual event platform from mobile
Mobile app image: Image displayed in the app
We recommend that the images you use for your adverts meet a certain resolution for qualitative purposes. The recommended dimensions are as listed below:
