Any time you are offering an event that has more than one course you will want to create a conference/multi-course event.
Creating a Conference/ Multi-Course Event will allow you to group all the courses you will be offering together so your invitees can view and register for the event with one registration link.
When do I create a conference/ multi course event?
- Any time you are offering an event that has more than one course.
- Any time your event is more than one day, even if you are only offering 1 course. (State Licensing Boards only recognize 8 hours of CE credit hours per day, therefore one course that is offered over multiple days needs to have 1 CE Certificate per day.)
- If you break a 1-day course into a morning and afternoon course. (This is highly recommended so you can issue partial credit for attendees that do not stay all day. If you only list the course as an all-day course and an attendee leaves early you will have no way to issue partial CE Credit.
How to create your conference/ multi-day event
You can create a conference/ multi-day event 2 ways

Upload the Logo you want to display on your registration page, this can be your company logo or the logo created for your event
Display Logo Full Width
Yes: This will display your logo in a larger format, filling up most of the white space above your Conference Title. If your file is large you will want to select no.
No: This will display your logo in a smaller format within the white area above your Conference title.
Blurred Background Image
Setting this parameter will cause your uploaded logo to be used as a background image with a blur effect applied to it. The overall effect is of an abstract background that matches the color pallet of your logo since it's derived from that. The amount of blur required will vary between images to get the desired effect, so its best to try different levels and view the results. Setting this parameter will override the background color selection.
This will only be a choice if you leave the blurred background image set to no image. This is the color of the background behind your provided logo image. Setting this will replace the default color with your own. To choose a color you can click within the color large color box to select different hues or to change colors click on the side color template.
