Invite Participants to an Event

After logging in to Banzai Virtual (formerly High Attendance), there are 3 ways you can invite a participant to an event.

1. Event Overview Page

  • Select the name of the event in which you want to invite participants. This will take you to the Event Overview page.
  • Once on this page, select the blue Invite icon in the upper right corner and click Attendee.
  • For import type, you can either type out a list of email addresses or upload a CSV of recipients.
  • In the List of recipients box, add the email addresses of the participants you wish to invite, then click Send in the bottom right corner.
  • If you choose the CSV option, upload your participants using the CSV template here, then click Send in the bottom right corner.
  • You can verify your invitees in the Participants tab at the bottom of the Event Overview page under the Event Activity section. Invited participants will have a status of Invited.

2. Existing Invitee

  • If you’d like to invite a participant that has been invited to a past event, you can do so when initially adding a new event or by editing the event.
  • From the Edit Event page, select Attendees and Participants tab and click Add Existing in the upper right corner.
  • Select the contact(s) you want to invite from your existing participant list, then click Save.


3. Upload merge list
