This article explains how to create a LinkedIn event for your business. Use the LinkedIn event feature to engage your LinkedIn connections pre, post and during your in real life or online events, conferences, workshops and seminars.
To create an event from your LinkedIn Company Page, access the admin view of your company page from your desktop. Choose Admin tools on the RH side and click on Create an event.
When creating an event this way, versus from your LinkedIn Profile, the event icon and banner will be automatically duplicated from your company page. You can edit this if you wish to change them. You’ll then need to add the details for the event.
Please note – if creating the event from your LinkedIn profile, you can click on the + button next to Events on the RH side of your newsfeed, when you scroll down.
