5 Ways to Spruce Up Your Event

5 Ways to Spruce Up Your Event

Whilst it may still be sunny outside, at TryBooking the countdown to the holiday season has already begun. From Halloween ghost hunts in Rochdale to Christmas grottos in Carnforth, we’ve been amazed by all the great events we’ve seen as event organisers get out the festive lights from the loft and prepare for some great winter events.

And as holiday fever sweeps, one of the questions we’ve heard most from event organisers - both new and old - is how to spruce your event up and make it look the part.

Your event homepage isn’t just a place for your ticket purchasers to complete their purchase - it’s also a great opportunity for your event to be seen, shared and remembered. 

Plus, if you’ve not used TryBooking since last year, we’ve added even more ways to make your event stand out from the crowd, such as new custom booking labels to accurately reflect your event.

So, we’ve pulled together a round up of some of the most popular ways to add a festive sparkle to your event, and make it look the part this winter.

Five ways to spruce up your event

  • 1. Hero images
  • 2. Animated background images
  • 3. Fully customisable homepages
  • 4. Add videos to your event
  • 5. Add emojis to your event 🎉

You need a hero (image)

One of the best (and easiest!) ways you can make your event truly look the part is by adding a hero image. This is the main image for your event, and can be used to give your ticket purchasers a little flavour of what they can expect.

Make sure that your hero image fits our size recommendations so it can truly sparkle - our Learning Centre has all the details you need.

Animated background images

Want to give your event that summer feeling? You can easily add an animated GIF with a shining sun as a background image, which will show through the entire booking process.

Use our homepage editor

Want to make your event homepage look just so? Our homepage editor gives you full control over the look and feel of your event, from just making a few cosmetic changes to arranging the entire structure of your event page! 

We’ve also created tags which can pull information from different parts of your event onto your homepage automatically, saving you time when you’re setting up your event.

You can find out more about text tags on our Learning Centre.

Add videos to your event

They say that if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video must be worth a million! 

That’s why we make it super easy for you to add a video to your event page, helping you to give your guests a peak of what they can look forward to, such as a tour of a grand house during the summer holidays, or a preview of the food options for a Easter feast!

Learn how to add videos to your event on our Learning Centre.

Don't forget the emojis! 👍

Emoji’s are a great way to give your event that fun feel and stand out from the sea of text that you normally find on websites. It’s really easy to add them into your TryBooking event’s title and description - just check out our Learning Centre article.

So, there you have it - five easy ways you can make your event truly stand out this winter.
