How to create an event on the Event System
At TruckersMP, we have created our own Event System where you can publish your events and other users can sign up to attend events. This guide will help you create your first event on the Event System.
- To create an event, head over to the Event System page or click on the "Events" page on the top of the site.
- When you are on this page, click on "Create Event".
Game - Select the game you are hosting your event on. For example, Euro Truck Simulator 2.
Server - Select the server which you will be hosting your event on. For example, Simulation 2.
Event Name - Input the name of your event. For example, "Weekly Convoy".
Time and Location
Start Date & Time (UTC) - Input the time that your event is scheduled to start. Ensure this time is in UTC.
Start City - Select the city your event will start. For example, Rotterdam.
Start Location - Input the location where your event will start. For example, WGCC.
End City - Select the city your event will end. For example, Amsterdam.
End Location - Input the location where your event will end. For example, LKW.

Information - Input information about your event. This could include but is not limited to: a short introduction to the event, convoy rules and additional event information.
Banner Image - Insert a banner image that will appear at the top of your event page when created.

Voice Link - Insert a link to where participants can discuss the convoy. For example, Discord or TeamSpeak.
External Link - Insert a link to an external site where further event information may be posted.
Visibility and Disclaimer
Visibility - You can either publish the event publicly or save it as a draft.
And before you can create your event, you must agree with the Disclaimer that your event follows the event rules.
How to manage your events on the Event System
You can manage your events on the Manage Events page.
On this page, you can see the events you have marked to attend, events you have created which are publicly viewable and any draft events that you have not yet made publicly viewable. For your events, you will be able to edit this directly from this page.
If you are in a VTC and have the appropriate permission, you can create events on behalf of your company. Simply head to your VTC page, click on the Events box and manage your company events from there! Your event will appear on the Event System like normal, but appear to be created by your VTC, not an individual.
How to delete your event on the Event System
You can delete your event by going onto your event page, which you can find on the Manage Events page, and press the "Delete Event" button.
