  7. Event Guide - Adding a venue location

    Venue map Instructions Please folow when adding venure details to your event Use venue info direct from Google Our event venue map uses google maps to display your venue location, so you need to match up your venue info the same as what goggle uses Do not use 'venue titles' such as 'Nottingham Northern Soul and Motown @ The Nags'   Google hasn't a clue where or what that venue is , so that title will send it off looking (and then showing) for something else straight away You need to use the actual venue name (the real world name of the venue) not one that you have made up eg The Nags Head Next where it says address you need to enter the street name and number eg 1 Station Rd then if needed you can 'hit' the + icon and enter more address lines if needed Need to add the proper town/city name as per Google Don't bother to add regions  Add postcode as per Google and that's it Once the event is save in theory google should now find and show the correct venue address
