    Interested to see the unique layouts and web designs that companies have created for their clients. Feel free to blur out client names but I would like to see the work from different creative minds!

    Hi Thu,

    Hopefully some other Cvent users can chime in and share some of their examples and websites, but I wanted to make sure to also share our Flex Visual Showcase with you, which is filled with a variety Flex templates that have been designed by our Creative Services team. These can be implemented by our Creative Services team in your account for you if you are interested, but they also just serve as great inspiration for you to take a look at to get your creative juices flowing when it comes to event website design. Here's the link for the Flex Visual Showcase.

    I also wanted to include the How It's Made: New Standard Registration (Flex) Website Edition Webinar where you can watch our expert trainer walk through an example Flex website build directly from our Visual Showcase, giving you step-by-step guidance on how you can take your Site Designer skills to the next level.

    Hi Thu!
    I like to use the multiple columns in sections to keep text condensed and easier to read on a computer. Then the columns will stack when the website is looked at on mobile. I use simple colors in the backgrounds to alternate sections and make it easier to feel the page go by when scrolling on a long page.
    For accessibility purposes, I never use spacers, which a screen reader would interpret as an image without alt text. Instead, I use the top & bottom margin in the widget itself (either the whole section or a specific text widget).
    Here is an event I designed on Flex at my previous job. They have since gone with another event software, so I don't feel bad sharing it. You'll have to close the window saying "this event is over" to access the website: https://web.cvent.com/event/a19636c8-c15f-4def-aabd-eed7fdada0c7/summary
    Look at the travel pages in particular, which are text and/or image heavy.
    Cheers,

    Yes, thank you for sharing. I didn't event think of how spacers would affect screen readers.

    Hi Beline,

    Question for you.  How did you get your location to be on the default Agenda view?  Without having to click on a carrot for more details?  I am trying to customize that on my event, but it defaults to the Meeting Category.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hi Maureen,

    I believe it is a setting of the Agenda widget - there's a list where you can toggle which data fields you want visible on the agenda.

    Hi Thu,

    We get very creative with our Flex websites!

    Here is an example from our Design Conference earlier this year (you'll need to close the box saying the event has past to view):

    Feel free to reach out if you'd like any tips on how to recreate any aspects of this.

    Hi Sharna,

    I would also love to see what you have built but it looks like the event is now archived.
