Looking to add a special VIP section to your online event? Or, are you working with multiple simultaneous Private Events that you'd like to connect together?
Either way, you're in the right place! This article will show you a quick workaround for how you can connect multiple private events together using your Content Banners.
If you are trying to link Public Events together, please check out this article to see how you can easily achieve this using our built-in Event Directory feature.
So, let's get started connecting your private events!
1. Create the number of events you would like, as you normally would (remember each event will act as a "building")
IMPORTANT: Please remember, as Private Events, you need to make sure you have added all the emails of your guests into the guest list of each event. If this is not done, guests will not be allowed to enter the Private event. For more information on setting up Private events, please check out this article
For a quick solution, you can create 1 event and clone it. They will have two different links
2. Copy the event link for your second event by clicking the 3 dots in the upper right-hand corner of your event card and selecting 'Copy invite URL'
3. In the first event, add a content banner that links guests to the second event you created. Here's an example of how you could set that up:
- Banner Name: The Second Building's Name (e.g. The Networking Room or The Lounge Area)
- Content Image: Visual Representation of what guests can expect in this other building
- Floor Plan Image: An Image to entice guests to move to the second building
- Call to Action Link: Link to the other Building (Link to the Second event)
To avoid making your guests register again (when jumping between buildings), add "?autojoin=1" to the end of your call to action link. See an example of this below: For example: - Original Link: https://live.remo.co/e/event-2 - New Link: https://live.remo.co/e/event-2?autojoin=1
Please make sure you are using the original Remo event link (i.e. live.remo.co/e/event-name) when linking buildings via content banners
When guests jump into a Private event for the first time (even when adding the "?autojoin=1"), they will be directed to the Event Landing Page first to check their email matches the email address on the event's guest list. This only happens the very first time the guest joins the event.
4. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for each other event you've created. By doing so, you're essentially linking each of these buildings together using the content banners. So if you want your guests to be able to move freely between all your buildings, you'll need to have a content banner for each of the buildings in every building you've set up
5. Try it out yourself to get the hang of it before your event! And to make sure each of the links are working properly
6. During your event, let your guests know they can follow the banners to the parallel events
You may have noticed there are endless opportunities when it comes to simultaneous events. You could be running a multi-session conference and have each building represent a different session of your conference, such as 'The Welcome Lobby', 'The Main Stage' and 'The Networking Room'. Alternatively, you could use simultaneous events to take your guests through a specific route/ adventure, like a virtual IKEA even...
The sky's the limit here! Just make sure to check your plan limitations!
