Key Benefits:

  • Attendees visiting the Event Portal are no longer presented with buttons that lead to empty pages.
  • As you add content to share (e.g. Schedules, Messages, Jobs, etc…), the appropriate buttons will automatically appear.

Accessibility Improvements

As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure events on our platform are accessible to everyone, no matter their ability, we’ve made improvements to the accessibility of our Event Portal and Registration Forms. These improvements make it easier for registrants using assistive technology to navigate our Event Portal and register for an event.

Other Enhancements
