What is Event Stage and How Do I Set It Up?

The Event Stage is the main stage of your venue event and is located on the top of your event and above the booths. It is composed of a video/live stream area and an event-wide text chat. You have the option to completely turn off the event stage or just the event-wide text chat.

The Event Stage includes the following key elements:

Text Chat: add an engaging event-wide text chat to your event.
Stage Image: display an image or photo on the stage.
Pre-recorded Video: show a pre-recorded video on the stage.
Live Stream Video: show a live stream video on the page. You can use a tool like Streamyard or Zoom to broadcast a live stream to your event stage.

The event stage will show either the Stage Image, Pre-recorded Video, or Live Stream Video as follows:
The Main Image will be shown if a Pre-Recorded Video is not selected, and a Live Stream Video is neither configured or live.
The Pre-recorded Video will be shown if a Live Stream Video is not configured.
The Live Stream video will be shown if it is enabled. It will show the Main Image if the video is not live.
