9/18/20: Publicize your online events!

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
– Online Event – Webinar
– Zoom Online Meeting
– Zoom
– 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!

6/5/20: Responses to current events

We at FullCalendar condemn in the strongest possible terms all forms of racism, prejudice and discrimination.

Here are some responses from the places we post event listings.

5/9/20: Yes! We publicize online events!

We are publicizing online/virtual events – live and/or recorded. We are adding listing places where we couldn’t post before, and have cut some places that have not moved to online events. Enter your event as normal and for the venue, enter what you’d like the listing to say, eg, Livestream, Virtual, On demand, etc. Please enter the event’s city to indicate its time zone. Note: many listing places are focusing on local organizations’ online offerings, even though events could be viewed anywhere. Any questions, contact us.

11/11/16: Resource: VenueBook

VenueBook is a venue directory that allows event organizers to get online quotes, book a venue and pay online. Venues include bars and restaurants, galleries, theaters, lofts and private event venues. Currently it has 429 venues in the NYC metro, 118 in the SF bay area, 109 in the DC area, and 88 in Chicagoland. There is also an option for venues to offer complete packages, usually meals, but also art or culinary activities. We don’t know more about it, just mentioning it in case it’s of interest to you, either as an organizer or a venue.
