Use this guide to create an Event QR Code using the Scanova QR Code Generator.
Event QR Code allows you to create an invitation card for an event and RSVP options to a Dynamic QR Code. When this QR Code is scanned, the end user will see a mobile-optimized landing page with all the event details. For example—event titles, banner images, descriptions, and image galleries. This QR Code also helps guests RSVP via email and add the Event to their Calendar.
