How to Set Up a talque Event

You can set up an event in talque in five simple steps. Below you can find more details about each of these steps.

  1. Basic event settings
  2. Creating the basic content structure Set up the speaker profiles and sessions and the partners profiles (sponsors and exhibitors)
  3. Involving content contributors to provide text, photos, videos, etc. through a link-based form
  4. Design the features of your event (onboarding, networking features, video integration, etc.)
  5. Inviting participants into the talque platform

Tip: The order of the tabs in the admin section will also guide you along this process. Start on the tab General, then add your Branding elements, and so on.

Note the difference: link-based form for content creation ⇹ invitation into talque

Start with setting up the basic event structure: For a small event this consists of some speakers, sessions and sponsors that can be entered manually in the admin interface (names, email addresses, session titles). Now you can already involve content contributors like speaker and partners to enter their text content, images, documents and videos. This process is link based and does not require the the contributors to be registered in talque. Please start this early on: our experience shows that contributors need some time to gather all the necessary media.

About a week before the event starts, invite the participants into the talque app: add them to the Invitations tab in the admin area and send out the invitations from there. The participants will receive an email that asks them to 'Start onboarding now for {event name}' and the link button will take them straight into talque. Now they are in the talque event platform and can start to discover your event.
