The Customizable Content Area is a powerful tool that brings experience from content to a whole new level: embedding widgets, videos, hyperlinks, file downloads, or extensive descriptions.Event Organizers can utilize file sharing, organize pdf downloads, embed media content in the content area on the following pages:

  • About section on the Classic Registration page
  • Welcome section on the Reception page
  • Additional information in the event segments: Stage, Sessions, and Expo Booths.

Types of customizations supported

  • Multiple heading elements (H1-H3, paragraph)
  • Bold, italic, underline, strikethrough formatting
  • Adding color to the text
  • Turning text to a hyperlink
  • Bulleted lists
  • Numbered lists
  • Inserting images stored on your computer
  • Block quotes
  • Inserting media as the URL (links will generate a preview for most popular media: GIFs, social media posts, Spotify, Youtube, Google Maps, etc.)

    Note: Please make sure that the links you add are public for the preview to generate correctly. Once you add the URL to the Content Area, the preview will generate automatically for all supported media types.
