We are publicizing virtual events: comedy, theater, business, film, and more. We stopped posting to a few places that aren’t maintaining their listings, and added or expanded a few where we could now post online events, including a few that will accept them outside their normal coverage area.
For venue, you can enter what you want, eg, Virtual event, Online, Zoom, etc. What others have done:
– Virtual/Online Event
– Online Event – Webinar
– Zoom Online Meeting
– Client X’s ZOOM Theater
– Client X’s Virtual Meeting Room
– Client X Online
– Livestreamed on YouTube
– Livestreamed on Zoom
– Virtual Gathering using Zoom
– Web-hosted event
– Online from XYZ Bookstore (or XYZ Winery, etc)
IMPORTANT: we do need a CITY, we’ll send the listings to that geography, and that’s how we’ll figure out the time zone. For street address, enter whatever you’d like (same as above or similar); we’ll need to post that in some places but it will still be clear it’s an online event.
For emails, we’ll send out what you enter (without a physical address, but with a phone or url if you include them).
For websites, many of them ask you to use their existing venue entry for online events, so we use that for all online events. Some have a checkbox for online events, and don’t accept an address at all.
The media seems to be a mix- some are on hiatus, some are really looking for online events to post, some seem to be ignoring their calendar section so there are now-cancelled events among the online events.
But overall, the media is very happy to see your online (and now, occasionally in-person) events!
