Global templates

When initiating your event creation process, InEvent offers a choice of six global templates for you to select from. These templates help to accelerate the event creation process, providing a convenient guide for setting up conferences, summits, team-building events, and more, without the need to create custom templates.

InEvent's Global templates cannot be customized like custom templates. If you wish to tailor the template to your preferences before creating events, it is recommended to create a custom template.

Global templates

When you create an event using any of these global templates, the event mode will be Hybrid (Virtual + InPerson). The event cover will display the name of the template used. It also features pre-set elements such as activities, sponsors, and exhibitors, speakers, ticket etc.

You can continue setting up the event to fit your needs. Refer to this article for a guide.
