What is Eventranet, and what does it do?

Eventranet is an onsite interactive service for delegates to access all their event needs in a digital format. Eventranet is a one stop portal that brings together similar onsite services like message boards, internet access, presentation downloads, event signage and news and presentation feeds. It is a completely paperless alternative to traditional event structures, it also provides any event with a modern service to a delegate market that is now smarter, more technically savvy and more connected than ever before.



How do I use this online system?

This portal allows you to search through sessions and events being held as part of the IUCN World Parks Congress 2014. From the Home screen you can view the programme in full, search via certain topics (i.e. sessions for a particular Stream) or search for sessions/events based on certain criteria or keywords. The portal also allows you to build your own personalised schedule which you can import into your calendar or save as a PDF and bring with you to the Congress.


How do I add a session/event to my own personalised schedule?

Firstly, click on the "Login" option at the top and create a new account or simply login if you already have your details. Once you have found a session/event you are interested in, click on it to pull up further information. Once the pop up box appears there will be an "Add to my schedule" option available.


If I add a session/event to my schedule how can I remove it?

On the schedule select the session you want to remove. The session outline will appear. Click the yellow star at the bottom of the box with "You are attending!". It will change back to a blank star with "Add to My Personal Schedule". You have now removed the session from your personal schedule. If you are using the table in 'My Schedule' you will need to refresh the page for the changes to appear.


How do I edit my details?

Open "Update my personal details"
Make the required changes accordingly.
Once you've made changes click on the "Update my Details" button at the bottom of the page and these amendments will be saved.
