When creating your event, the default event visibility option is public - most promoters will want their event to appear publicly. However, you also have the option that the event is private. Below we explore the difference between both options.

Public Event

When making an event it will automatically be set to public unless you click otherwise. The benefits on having a public event:

  • The event will be listed on the Skiddle events guide (offering maximum exposure/advertising)

  • The event will be visible on some of our partner websites or apps

  • The event will be shown against the venue page, plus any associated artist pages

  • When visitors search for your event using our keyword search, it will be returned in the results

  • The event will be indexed by Google and may appear in the Google results

Private event

A private event is great for events that you only want selected people you want to see.

  • The event will not be listed on the Skiddle events guide (offering maximum exposure/advertising)

  • The event will not be visible on our partner websites or apps

  • The event will not be shown against the venue page, plus any associated artist pages

  • When visitors search for your event using our keyword search, it will not be returned in the results

  • The event will not be indexed by Google and should not appear in the Google results

To make an event private:

  1. If you haven’t already made an event, then on the dashboard click 'Create new event'. When you reach Step 5 - Confirmation, select the Private option and click next.

    If you already have your event listed and want to switch it to a private event, select the event on the dashboard and using the toggle (shown below) select Private.

    To share your private event with someone, you will need to copy the events URL located on the same page above.
