There is a limit to the number of attendees my venue will take. Can I limit bookings with EventHQ?

You can limit attendees to your events in three ways, either:

  1. Set an overall limit (this article) on attendees. EventHQ will sell tickets until the number of attendees reaches this limit
  2. Set limits for individual tickets. EventHQ will sell each ticket until it's individual limit is reached, after which that particular ticket will no longer be available
  3. A combination of 1 and 2. You can put a limit on individual tickets and on the total number of attendees. An individual ticket will be marked as sold out when it's limit is reached after which EventHQ will continue to sell other available tickets until either their limits are reached or the overall limit is reached, whichever happens first.

Pro tipIf you have lots of events you may find it easier to filter or search your events first. You can search events by name and location. Partial search terms are accepted, e.g. "Lon" will find all events located in London.
