What is a Venue Plan?
The design for your Venue, where you can build your seats or areas if you have reserved seating.
If you don't have reserved seating, you can create a General Admission Venue Plan where you can assign capacities but without building seats or areas - more info on that here.
How do I create a Venue Plan?
From the Venues page and selecting the Venue Plans tab, before selecting what type of Venue Plan you want to create and building your plan.
For more info, see our Step-by-Step Guide below.
How do I add my Venue Plan to to my Event?
Via your Price Profiles, where you can connect the prices for your Event to the seats on your Venue Plan.
