Eventbrite is relatively simple to connect PlaceCal, only needing a specific URL to be copied over, once. The complexities are on Eventbrite itself. All you need is to set up an account and then give it an organiser profile, then feed PlaceCal the URL for that organiser’s page. Any upcoming events you’ve put on Eventbrite are collected there, where PlaceCal can read a bring the relevant details over.
If you’re already familiar with Eventbrite and have an organisation profile up and running there, the bit PlaceCal needs is the URL to the profile page for your organiser. If you’re not sure where to find that, read on. If you are, you can skip down to “Connecting To PlaceCal”.
