Change Event To Your Local Time Zone

One of the great things about virtual or hybrid events is the ability for people all across the globe to attend an event from the comfort of their own homes. The Event Cloud makes it easy for global audiences to attend virtual events by allowing any user to display event activities in their preferred time zone.

Best Practices For Selecting Your Time Zone:

Are you located in an area that observes Daylight Saving Time?

If you are: We recommend looking for a major city that is in the same time zone as you and make sure that it is also observes Daylight Saving Time (such as New York, Chicago, Denver, or Los Angeles). You are in Daylight Saving Time (e.g. EDT) in Spring and Summer and you are in Standard Time (e.g. EST) during Fall and Winter.

If you are not: You are always on Standard Time in North America. Please select EST, CST, MST, or PST any time of the year (e.g. America/Phoenix MST).

Setting Your Time Zone Preference on First Login

The first time you log in and enter the virtual event (Schedule Builder), a window will pop open that asks you to set your preferred time zone.

There are two ways to select your time zone. You can scroll through the list of available time zones as shown below:
