The following pages will provide information on what EventsAIR is, the routes to using it, how to request to use it and how to start planning your event.
What is EventsAIR?
EventsAIR is an online platform which provides end-to-end management for large scale online events (such as conferences or open days).
The EventsAIR platform provides services beyond other platforms for online events at the University (such as Teams and Zoom). It provides communications and registration management, exhibitor stands, multiple sessions, breakout and networking capabilities within each event and University of Edinburgh (and individual School) branding.
The EventsAIR platform also requires more effort and resource (in staff numbers and training) to get events up and running.
