Boost your event's visibility online using the Categories and Keywords fields when building your event!


This image shows how to locate and select your event Type, Category and Sub-category

When creating your event indicate the type, category and sub-category of your event (where applicable).

  • Type - refers to the format of your event. Is it a conference, workshop, screening or festival?

  • Category - refers to the relevant industry / genre / theme / kind of event

  • Sub-category - there are a number of different sub-categories for each category e.g. if it’s a music event, is it primarily classical, country, electronic, indie, pop, rock or other?

These types and categories will now enable attendees to filter the marketplace for more targeted and segmented searches. How good!

When creating your event, below your Event Name and type / category selections, you can also enter to 10 relevant keywords.

Each keyword can be up to 25 characters each (no spaces) - simply click ‘+ New keyword’, start typing and press the Enter button when done.

Don’t forget to click Save & continue to save your progress.

Use words that you think your audience will be searching for e.g. type of event, topic, names of presenters / performers, industry terminology etc.

With effective use of keywords, your events will be listed in search results when attendees look up keywords in the Humanitix Events Marketplace. This means more eyes on your event and more beautiful experiences you can share with the world!
