Event Branding & Customization
The event landing page is the entrance to your event. It contains the event title and date, a registration form and login field (for people already registered), and descriptive text, speaker headshots, and other images or videos that you choose to add.
When attendees register and sign in to the event, they are taken to the event window. Depending on your webcast, the event window contains a video player where presenters appear on camera and uploaded videos are played; tabs for slides, surveys, and other content; and sidebar tabs for Q&A and audience chat.
There are so many options for customizing the appearance of your event and adding your brand that it can be difficult to know where to begin. One way is to start at the top of the page and work your way down. Set the visuals first and then build out the web content for your attendees:

The layout of the landing page determines the placement of the registration form and landing page content. There are two styles:
- Bar layouts feature the event title and date prominently in colored bars across the landing page.
- Open layouts incorporate the event title and date in the body of the landing page.
To select a layout:
Go to the Player & Branding tab. Open Advanced Branding and select a Registration Layout.
The following example shows the same event styled with a bar layout (left) and open layout (right).
The following table explains the available layouts.
|A single column with landing page content first, followed by the registration form.
|Landing page content on the left and the registration form on the right.
|Landing page content with a Register Now button that opens the form in a small window.
|Title Top - Left Registration
|Event title and date centered above a container with the registration form on the left and landing page content on the right.
|Title Top - Right Registration
|Event title and date centered above a container with the landing page content on the left and registration form on the right.
|Side-by-Side - Left Registration
|Event title and date above landing page content with the registration form on the left.
|Side-by-Side - Right Registration
|Event title and date above landing page content with the registration form on the right.
Use colors and background images to brand the look of the event landing page and event window. To set colors, go to the Player & Branding tab and open Advanced Branding. The Site Branding Options section lists page elements you can color.
The following table summarizes the options.
|The color displayed behind banner logos. Set the banner to transparent to show the:
|Landing page, event window
|The color of buttons on the landing page and tabs in the event window. For bar layouts, the highlight color is also the background of the event title bar. See:
|Landing page, event window
|Date bar color
|Bar layouts only. The bar with the event date, below the event title bar. See:
|Form container color
|In a two-column layout, you can set the background color of the registration form. Remember that the highlight color sets the color of buttons; select a color that contrasts well behind the registration form.
|Registration container color
|The content area that holds the registration form and landing page content. You can set to transparent to allow the background color or image to show through.
|Registration page background
|The area behind the registration container. You can select a background color, upload a background image, or both. (Set the banner to transparent to have the page background color show through.)
|Landing page, event window
|The content area that holds the banner, video player, slides and other content tabs, and chat and Q&A tabs. Set the player container to white to group all the blocks or set to transparent to show the background color or background image.
|Player page background
|The area behind the player container. By default, the player uses the registration page background. You can set a color or upload a background image specifically for the event window.
All registration layouts include a dedicated space for additional content. By default, this space - called the landing text - is empty. You can edit it and include additional event information, images, speaker headshots, links, and videos on your registration page. You can also add your own custom code or use auto-fields to include the event title, date, duration, or reminder buttons on the page.
Finally, let your attendees spread the word about an event on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook, and then track registrations that originate from their posts.

You can display logos of event sponsors and other call-to-action images during the event. The logos are included in the lower right corner of the event window, above the footer.
You can include as many sponsor logos as you like. You can set the display order of the logos, the amount of time each logo is displayed, and include a link so that when attendees click on the logo, they're taken to the sponsor's website.
