Listing Upcoming Presentations

Pro users have always been able to list their upcoming presentations in a small section on their profile pages. That was minimal, but fine. We wanted to step it up a notch, so we’ve added a listing page for upcoming (announced) presentations, along with talk descriptions, maps and an option to encourage readers to attend the event.

Import your Lanyrd events

We really loved Lanyrd as a site for logging the events and conferences we were attending and speaking it. As a conference speaker, much of the content you’ve spent time curating in Lanyrd has crossover with the sort of thing you’d want to store in Notist.
