The countdown timer supports a still background image, slider or you can set a video background as well.
A section having a thumbnail image and short description about the event may follow the countdown timer.
You can place buttons to link the user to the event details page and ticket selling system.
Speakers: Eventum has a beautiful homepage block to display the event speakers. It lets you show speaker names, designations, photos and definitely link to their individual profiles. It’s a very crucial feature which is covered by this theme.
At first you need to add speaker profiles to the site using Eventum’s custom post option. Here is a screenshot of the “Add New Speaker” page.
After adding all of your speakers, you can display them all on a single dedicated page. The speakers can be shown in different categories using VC. Themeum’s custom VC addon can place them on any page. A single speaker profile looks like this.
Event Schedules: For any event or conference, schedule is a prime issue. Eventum lets you add detailed event schedule to the site and display on any page.
Schedule information includes session title, session time, location, speaker and more as you like. To add a schedule, go to New > Schedule. The ‘Add New Schedule’ page has all necessary fields required for creating a schedule page. Here is a screenshot.
There are two styles to display schedules- list and tab. Here is a screenshot of the tab-style event schedules.
