Event Website Sub-Menus

A well designed event website help attendees find the information they need at the right time and provides a professional impression which will help you get sponsors!

Event websites on Fourwaves, including events on the free plan, have 6 website pages (home, registration, submission, schedule, participant, presentations).

The full website add-on use to allow 5 additional custom website pages. Now you can add unlimited pages and sub-menus!

Accordion Content Block

The Accordion content block allows you to add clickable items that expand with a paragraph text. You can use this for anything you like for example a FAQ section!

Keep your website packed with relevant information while keeping it nicely organized.

Logos Content Block

Getting sponsors is super important for conferences. We released a new Logo content block to make it more simple to highlight your sponsors contribution!

You can choose from small, medium or large sizes.

Sponsor logos

The sponsors section (Configuration -> Sponsors) was removed and all original sponsor logos were migrated to the new content block automatically!

We also added a thumbnail to identify them as you build your website pages.

The logo thumbnails help you see which logos you're editing.

Conflict checker

The conflict checker is very useful if you want to quickly spot presentations from the same presenter schedule in overlapping times!

In your dashboard, you'll see this new statistic. Click on it to see which presentations are in a schedule conflict and reschedule them.

Presentations in schedule conflict
