Customising Event Displays

Buzzspark provides several Themes for Event Displays. Each theme can be easily customised to match your brand and desired experience, be it on in-store digital signage, indoor/outdoor digital displays in your workplace, at events, conferences, or digital-out-of-home displays such as billboards, bus-top shelters, and screens in shopping malls, airports, stations, and public venues.

All custom options are grouped into tabs in the right sidebar when editing an Event Display. Our visual editor simplifies the entire process for non-technical users and provides access for developers to edit underlying code or to create completely unique experiences.

Refer to the articles below for details of all available custom options under each of the tabs in the visual editor. You might also find it helpful to reference the structure and terminology used in Event Displays.
