Follow the steps listed to set up your first event!

A - Event photo or video
You can use a Photo or Video to promote your event. For the best results, choose a photo or video with an aspect ratio of 1:9:1 or which is 1,200 x 628 pixels. The recommended video length is between 30 seconds and the maximum 5 minutes.

B - Event name
Enter your event name (be as creative as you can, to stand out!), you have a 64 letter cap. Make your event name easy to read by using standard capitalisation and common characters.

C -  Location
Start typing your location name or address and if it's been indexed by Facebook, it will show up. If the location doesn't show up, make sure your given address is accurate so that guests know where to go.

D - Description
Here's where you 'sell' your event to your guests. Tell them why they should come and what they can expect at the event. Again, make it easy to understand and focus on a few unique points instead of giving them a whole paragraph to read.

E- Category
Select from the drop-down menu which category your event falls under.

We're not done yet... Click on the scroll down button on the bottom right.
