Sponsored events are a way to give an event unique styling throughout the calendar and a prominent spot on your homepage in your Trending events list. The event will be given an automatic boost in the Trending algorithm, which will result in ranking higher in any Trending list–whether on your homepage or another channel. Not to mention, unique styling can be specified with Custom CSS so that the event stands out in the Trending events list and other results pages.
