Overview

The Sponsors section is where you manage one or more sponsor profiles you wish to display on your Event Portal.

Use this section to promote your sponsors and connect their brands to your event's attendees by adding sponsor logos and optional banner ads to your event portal.

  3. Fill in as many details as you have for the sponsor, upload a logo, and optionally set banner ads if you have them.

  4. Publish your sponsor when you are done to display it on your Event Portal.

Displaying Sponsor Profiles on the Event Portal

Sponsor profiles can be displayed on your Event Portal. By default, a Sponsors button is added to the Event Portal > Home page.

If the Sponsors button does not appear on your Event Portal, go to the Event Manager App > Sponsors section > Settings tab and make sure the Sponsors feature is enabled, and that the default "Sponsors" button label was not changed.

  • Upload Mobile banner image. Note the recommended size is 300 x 90 pixels (width x height) in JPEG, GIF, or PNG formats.

  • Banner Link is used to specify if a guest clicks on the banner where will it go.

  • Banner Alt(alternative) Text is used to help improve accessibility for some guests who use assistive technologies including screen readers to read the banner text. 

  • Impressions is used to configure how often will the banner be shown relative to other banners.

    When banner images are provided for multiple sponsors, this sponsor banner will be displayed based on the number of banner impressions specified, relative to the total number of banner impressions for all other published sponsors that have banner images provided.

    If a banner image is provided, but no banner impression value is set for a published sponsor, the banner will be displayed randomly.
