Lightning Pages appear on the event microsite as tabs. These pages are dynamic and can include both standard and custom components. Staff users can configure which pages appear for each Event Status. Each tab has a unique URL that can be utilized in Google Analytics tracking. You can access this URL from the page within the event.

Default Components

Lightning Components are self-contained and reusable units of an event. There are several components included that can be added to different pages in any order the staff user desires. These include:

  • All Speakers

  • All Sponsors

  • Event Overview

  • Featured Speakers

  • Featured Sponsors

  • HTML Component

  • Primary Venue

  • Registration

  • Secondary Venues

  • Sessions

  • Venue Map

  • Image Component

  • Video Component


Video Components support uploaded videos and videos from YouTube. YouTube videos require the use of the embedded link from the iframe.

Default Pages

A number of Lightning Event Pages are included in MemberNation, however, these pages are unpublished by default and can be disabled or configured to show or hide different components.


The Event Overview provides a description of the Event as well as components related to any other pages used in the Event such as Tickets, Featured Speakers, Primary Venue, and Featured Sponsors.


Events often include break-out sessions such as meetings, Keynote speeches, and meals. The Agenda page allows users to view an Event’s entire program broken down by Date, Time, and optional Tracks. Each Session displays this information as well as its location, description, and associated Speakers. Individual Sessions can be searched using the Session Search bar at the top of the component.


Event Sponsors are displayed on the Sponsors page as well as any information about tiered Sponsor Packages. Featured Sponsors can also appear on the Featured Sponsors component for Lightning Events, and displayed on other pages such as the Event Overview.


Session Speakers can be cataloged on the Speakers page. By default, their photo, name, and Organization will show on the page. Featured Speakers can also appear on the Featured Speakers component for Lightning Events, and displayed on other pages such as the Event Overview.

When selected, the Speaker’s photo, bio, social network profiles, and any sessions which they are presenting will display.


Venues display the locations for the Event. Lightning Event Pages can display several Venues including a Primary Venue and several Secondary Venues. Primary Venues can also appear on the Primary Venue component for Lightning Events, and displayed on other pages such as the Event Overview.
