Choose an Event Type > In-person, Virtual or Hybrid

The event type will modify the event settings slightly and will affect mainly Brella Meetings and Attendee Groups. Therefore, it's crucial to select the right type.

Setting up your event type is crucial to understand what tools you can use in Brella and provide you with the right information while building your event.

To select your event type 👇

  1. Go to and log in with your Brella account.  
    You will see the navigation menu on the left.
  2. Navigate to My events.
    Choose the event you are to build and click on the Details tab.
  3. Add your Event Title and choose the Event Type.
    When choosing the event type for your event, be aware of how some features change. The rest of the features work the same in the Admin Panel. 👍
