Our event is virtual but a physical address is required, how can we hide the physical address?

At this time, it is not possible to hide the physical address fields. As a workaround, you can get creative with the fields. We suggest including the city and state the event is being hosted from. For example,

  • Location Name = Virtual Event

  • Street Address = Join us on Zoom!

  • City = Long Beach

  • State/Province = CA

  • Postal Code = 90803
