Using EventBrite

When to use Eventbrite

  • If your event requires tickets and/or assigned seating.
  • Due to privacy legislation, Eventbrite use is voluntary and event hosts are required to provide an alternative method of registration.
  • Events hosted through Eventbrite will not be automatically added to Livewhale and therefore will not show up on the SFU Events Calendar. For instructions on adding your event to the SFU Events page, please visit Share to SFU Events Calendar.

When not to use Eventbrite

  • If your event requires only advance registration, or if you are unable to provide an alternative method of registration, please use the SFU Websurvey. For instructions on how to use the Websurvey, please visit the IT guide.
  • If your event does not require registration, tickets or assigned seating, please use Livewhale to promote it.
