Create online/in-person hybrid events

Eventbrite LogoUpdated by Antwonne D

If you want to run an event that lets people attend in-person or virtually, create two event listings. Make one listing for the in-person event and another for the online component. You can speed this up by copying your event. Make sure to use clear titles and link to each event in the descriptions.
