You can now create events for listings that you manage! Once you create your event, users will be able to check-in and share their location with friends (who might decide to drop by, too).
To get started, log into your Foursquare account. Hover over your user name on the top right hand side of the screen and select your location or brand page. Make sure you are on your Manager Home page.
If you have a Brand Page, click the drop-down next to “Edit Profile For” and select the individual venue where you plan on hosting an event.
If you only have one location, you’re already in the right place.
Go to Manage you listing. Scroll down toward the bottom of the page. You’ll see a section called “Events.”

You’ll see your upcoming event listed right below in the section titled “Scheduled Events.”
If you scroll back up and click “View this location” on the top right in the yellow bar, you can see how your event will appear to users. It’s on the right-hand side of the page under the heading “Upcoming Events.”
This is how your event will display in the mobile app for users searching your venue and then checking in:
