Speaker Card's on Summary Page

    I have around 20 speakers for an event I am building and want to display their speaker cards on my summary page. However, the section is a bit long with 20 speaker cards displaying. I saw in on of the cvent flex visual showcase that they have four speaker cards displaying and you can scroll through all the speakers (see image below)  but I can not figure out how to achieve this. Has anyone else figured this out?

    My first thought is that they were using the image slideshow widget; however, in looking at the widget settings, I can't see how they set it to display the 4 images across with the navigation arrows. Unless I'm overlooking something, I can only show the multiple thumbnails below the single/larger main image. Maybe they customized the image slideshow widget with some custom html/css?

    I don't believe they use the actual speaker widget on many of the websites in the showcase (possibly none of them, but there are a lot to go through). They tend to feature "handmade" image and text widget combinations instead. It is a little misleading in my opinion. They are not actually showcasing the speaker widget at all. I wish there were options for built-in speaker widgets that looked more like what is displayed. They've done some great things on the showcase, it's just not what you get using the widget.

    I do agree this is a nice feature! When I looked over the flex virtual showcase, I notice that the word "advanced" was written on the event. This indicates that some HTML coding was involved. It would be really nice if Cvent in the future adds this option as a slideshow.
