About the Speakers

The Speakers block is used to showcase your speakers on a livepage.

In order to utilise this feature, you will have to create the agenda and speaker list under the Agenda app first. Think of the Agenda app as an “inlet” through which the speaker details are added, and the speaker block as being the “outlet” through which the details are displayed and made visible to the attendees.

Create a Speakers Block

To create a Speakers block, in the Venue Editor, click on "Add Blocks" button in the settings panel on the left, then choose "Speakers" under the Event Information category.

Block Settings

The main setting of the Speakers block is the Layout and Show which speakers? setting where you can apply your view, selection and sorting.

  • Layout (Single-Card / Multi-Card)
  • Show which speaker (All Speakers / Filtered List of Speakers or Manually Select Speakers)

Under Card Settings, you then can set the card size, padding and choose the displayed information of speakers (job title, company, bio)
