  2. A Multi-day event is a 2-3 day Zumba® Event that includes multiple Zumba fitness activities, for example, Zumba® Master Classes, Zumba® specialty demos, a Zumba® wear fashion show, ZIN™ member only sessions (ZIN JAM™ or training sessions), special ZES™ presentations, a Home Office Connection, etc.
  3. A Zumbathon® charity event is a Zumba® dance-fitness party for a cause! These events are open to the public and raise funds and awareness for a selected charity, organization, individual or community in need.

Can I host a Zumba® event that includes other fitness brands or programs (e.g. Pilates)?

The QR code or Quick Response Code is a feature included with the Events Platform. Every ticket includes the ticket number and the user's name outside of the QR code. The ticket number and user's name is also encoded into a convenient QR code that the event coordinator can optionally use with an automated system to scan and save the ticket number automatically. There are many QR reader applications that can be used for this purpose. An Android user can use something like QR Code Reader , and an iPhone user can download the Quick Scan app. Both are free of charge.
