With Events for Stanford Sites, you have the power to build and present your events with detailed schedule information, including sessions dates/times, headline, description, location, speaker details, and more.

The Event List pages display all upcoming events and upcoming events filtered by event type. These dynamically generated pages can be found by visiting [your site url]/events and [your site url]/events/type respectively.

Using the Event Series functionality, you can organize and display your events into collections/series so that you can easily promote listings of related events to your audiences.

Additionally, you can import events directly from events.stanford.edu using the Event Importer.
