We know every Destination/Facility works differently, so we have implemented the ability to customize how your Local Hotel Partners populate on Marketed Events.

When you market an event, you will have the option to market hotel specials, live available hotel rates, or both!

This article explains how to add & customize hotel specials on your events. You will have the ability to include any booking URL for the hotel, the room rate per night, the offer expiration date & any additional details.

  1. Head to the 'Home' Tab
  2. On the left-hand side, you will see the 'Memberships' Tab
  3. There is a section labeled 'Events'
  4. You should see the event that you're looking to add hotel information to listed there
  5. Click the name of the event
  6. Now, you're in the 'Admin View' access event 1
