Locations (in Speaker and Session Management)

Quick Tips

Those actions open an Add Location or Edit Location pop-up window.

Play (icon) Video: Locations


On this page you add and edit the locations (rooms and halls) used for sessions in Speaker and Session Management.

(That module must be enabled for the event in Plan > Configure > Options > Functional Areas Needed by the Event.)

Once you have added locations here, you can allocate sessions to them when scheduling sessions in the grid view on the Sessions page, or when editing session instances.

Location Type List

The three standard location types are: Meeting Room, Meeting Hall, and Conference Hall.

Here you can also add custom types for this event. (For example, "Classroom" or "Exhibition Hall".)

All Location Types, both standard  and custom, are listed, with these two columns:

Pencil icon – Edit the Location Type Name, and click Check mark button to save your changes. (You can click Cross button to cancel unsaved changes.)

Red X – Delete the location type. (You are prompted to confirm.)
Note: This makes it unavailable for any locations in this event, so you can't delete one currently assigned to any location(s).
