We are thrilled you've chosen to plan your upcoming event with us. If you're new to our platform, let us acquaint you with some basic concepts for organizers and events.
Organizer Teams, such as you and your team members, are responsible for managing events in run.events. You will usually want to have one Organizer Team per company or organization. You'll maintain all data that applies to all the events you organize at the Organizer Team level. This includes Team Management, Legal and Tax data, and Payment Provider Configuration, which won't change for different events. When you create your Organizer Team, it will be in the 'Requested' status. This means our team must approve it before you can proceed. However, don't worry, as we're quick with approvals.
Once you've created your Organizer Team, you can create events. In the event creation wizard, you'll provide basic details about the event, such as its name, dates, and related industries.
You'll also select the type of event that determines event pricing. We offer two event types:
Business events with paid tickets - where event pricing is based on ticket sales commission.
Business events with free tickets, such as corporate or internal events - where event pricing is based on the number of attendees.
Charity, non-profit, and community events, whether they have free or paid tickets – run.events pledges to waive its commission, but it will be required to provide additional information about the event.
In short, to begin working with run.events, the first step is to create an Organizer Team and configure its settings, which will apply to all event types. Once the Organizer Team is set up, you can create events with it.
We wish you success in running your events!
