Create and configure an event

The Events application allows you to promote your different events. With Yapla, you can plan and  manage your event, taking into account the specific aspects of each one: registration mode, registration period, free or with rates, different options, invoice, etc. 

When creating an event, you can choose its location, organizer, prices, registration forms, configure its web page and its promotion on social networks. 

Add an event
