A step-by-step guide to adding an event to Eventotron and building a profile.
First things first, you need to create an account
Register / Log in
Go to https://www.eventotron.com/ and click Events in the top menu
Enter your email address in the ‘New Users’ box then click ‘Register’. You will receive a password by email very quickly. If you haven’t received a password within five minutes, please check your spam / junk email. If it’s not there, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you sorted out ASAP.
Account already exists? If you get a message saying your account already exists, put your email address into the ‘Existing Users’ box and you can then follow the process for getting a new password.
Need a new password? If you have forgotten your password or can’t find your welcome email, you can click the link at the bottom of the ‘Existing Users’ box to get a new one.
If you’ve already set up an account just fill in the left hand ‘Existing Users’ box with your email address and the password you were sent in your welcome email.
Once you are logged in, you’ll be looking at the events section (if you are not, just click ‘Events’ in the top menu). If you already have events in the system, they will appear under My Events and the festivals/seasons they are part of will appear as icons underneath.
Add a New Event
To add a new event, click +create a new event
This pop up will appear.

Hit Create Event
That’s it – your event now exists in Eventotron. The next steps are to complete the Touring & Promotion section and apply to a festival / season.

The rest of About your event is self-explanatory – let’s move on to:
Content and Access

You can choose whether or not to share the item to your event profile (if you untick this, festival/season managers and programmers will not be able to see the item)
Promote your event
Put your event directly in front of venue managers and promoters locally and around the world by advertising in Eventotron. You can also help boost your audience – did you know, for example, that nearly 30% of ticket buyers at the Edinburgh Fringe are also involved in an event?
Just upload your image (you can edit it to size using the pencil icon) and insert some short, attention-grabbing copy. Preview your ad and your profile and when you are sure you are happy with it, simply click: Submit for approval.
Messages & Invitations
Here you will see messages, invitations and offers from festivals, seasons and venues which this event is not yet part of. You can send responses from here too. Once this event joins a festival, season or venue, the conversation will move to the relevant festival or season tab.
Once you are happy with the information you have provided and are ready to go public, just flip the Private button to Public and your event will be searchable by festivals, seasons, venues and promoters!
