FAQ – AV Industry Calendar
Q: What is the AV Industry Calendar?
A: The AV Industry Calendar was created to be the ONE place to help everyone in the AV and Technology industry find events. So many industry events, so many different places to search… until now.
Q: What makes the AV Industry Calendar different?
A: Other calendars typically just list events, and the event listings are very limited. The AV Industry Calendar lists a large amount of industry related events, allows you to search in a variety of ways, use filters, and more.
Q: What makes the AV Industry Calendar different, part 2?
A: LEGITIMATE ORGANIZATIONS CAN SIGN UP FOR AN ACCOUNT TO POST YOUR OWN EVENTS. This is meant mostly for trade event organizations, buying groups, distributors that hold events, and manufacturers. (Sorry, no backyard barbeque party invitations… Well, maybe if we are invited…)
Q: Is there a charge to use the AV Industry Calendar?
A: (“One MILLION dollars”, Dr. Evil…) Actually, the AV Industry Calendar is free to use to find events, download to your personal calendar, and more.
Q: Do I need to register to use the service?
A: No need to register to search, add events to your personal calendar, etc. (Unless you are really into filling out forms).
Q: How do I submit/post an event?
A: To add an event to the calendar, you must be a registered user. To register, fill out the form by clicking the Login/Register button on the top right corner of the screen. Submit the form and agree to the Terms & Conditions of use. You only need to register once.
When you set up an account for the first time, you will receive an email to activate your account. You will need to accept the account, which will trigger a second email to you in order to log in. You can then enter an event.
Click on “Add an event” in the top right section of the web page to submit an event. COMPLETE THE INFORMATION THOROUGHLY. The more that you complete including fully describing the event, adding a logo, selecting categories, etc., the better the listing will look.
Once you submit an event, it is sent to us for approval and this can take up to 24 hours during business days. We have the right to approve, modify, or disapprove any event. After we approve it, your event will appear on the site.
You can edit the event at any time, but note that any edits will need approval.
Q: Is there a fee to post events?
A: AT THIS TIME, accounts are free, up to 10 event postings. Frankly, we want to get people used to using the service. As it grows, there may be minimal charges for posting events and/or posting event over an XX number since we have to manage the site.
You can also donate to our site to help keep it going. See the bottom of the Login/Register and/or Add An Event pages for a PayPal link. (Yes, this is our own way of “Kickstarting”…)
Q: Can I post a webinar?
A: At this time, we do NOT allow postings of webinars, just physical events.
