Fill out the event details including
- Venue dDetails
- Date and Time
- Event Description

The difference between Private and Public Linkedin Events
After you create an event, you cannot modify the event’s privacy setting from public to private, or vice-versa.
If a Linkedin event’s visibility is set to Public:
- Any LinkedIn member can search for it using the event’s name.
- The connections of invitees or attendees can register to attend it if the connection has shared the event and it appears in their feed.
- Anyone with access to the event can click Attend on the event’s page, and they can also share the event or invite their connections to attend.
If a Linkedin event’s visibility is set to Private:
- It will only be accessible to LinkedIn members who have been invited by the organizer or other attendees (if the organizer has granted attendees the ability to invite their connections), or to people who have received the event’s URL link.
- The organizer will need to approve all member requests to attend if the requester hasn’t been invited by an attendee and has requested to attend from the event page.
- Note: Whilst creating the event, the organizer can grant attendees the ability to invite their connections to the event. The organizer won’t need to approve those requests.

After your Linkedin Event is created you can
