How to Promote with UBC Events

If you have submitted an event to our website, here are ways that we can support you. Due to the volume of events in the calendar we may not be able to feature your event but we will try our best to promote it!

  • Highlight – Promote your events early in the Highlights section where we feature events three months ahead.
