Publish Your Virtual Village
When you are ready to make your virtual expo/village public, go ahead and click on the Publish Event toggle! Green means it is enabled. (Make sure you're in Edit Mode.)
Then, click on Attendee View at the top. The link displayed on your browser's URL field is what you should share with your attendees to access your virtual event. Now remember, changing the URL Slug in the editing sidebar will make the previous URL expire (meaning invalid, it won't work anymore) so be sure to decide on and save your customized URL Slug before you share the public link. Each exhibitor booth has their own URL.
