To have the speakers section visible in the single events sidebar, you need to go to your WordPress widgets menu and enable the speakers option under the MEC Single Sidebar.

Then you can search your speaker’s name under the Speakers section of your event settings page (just like a tag).
Add / Edit Speaker
Every speaker has the following fields shown in the images:
You will also see this option in the hourly schedule menu, so you can add more precise and applicable time frames to the single event.
I need help with a bug on the speaker information not showing up. The speaker names listed under the schedule aren’t opening up the lity modal like they’re supposed to. The lightbox opens when you click on the speakers on the left side of the page, but the lightbox doesn’t work when you click on the names under the hourly schedule. I don’t know if anyone else has had the same bug.
update MEC to the latest version.
For troubleshooting, deactivate all your plugins and let the MEC remain active only, set your theme on default, then reload the page, if the issue was solved, then activate your plugins one by one and your theme, refresh your page and check to see which plugin is causing the issue and Please keep us informed.

Other people here are asking the same question but the replies seem to be missing the point – so it’s not answered.
Question: How can we show the “Description” field underneat the speaker image/title on the single event page. Right now you have to click it to see a modal verion but I’d like it to just show the full description on the page.
example of current speaker format https://i.imgur.com/8CU3NyG.png
however I’d like to show all the info (like here) https://i.imgur.com/2Vw5b7p.png on the single event page and not in a modal pop up
Unfortunately, currently, this is not possible. But I will submit this as a feature request and our developer team will add this in the next updates if possible.
How can I get the description to display?
Hello, Please provide us with more details. Sending screenshot of your desired state would be helpful for faster support.
Is there a way to shoe the speaker descriptions / social info on the page? I am using the Elementor plugin as well and can’t seem to be able to show this information.
No for a speaker we don’t have a single page. you can create the speaker archive page manually (with our team widget of the Elementor) and use the Elementor Single Builder and link to speaker archive page under the speaker widget, or another solution to doing that as well.
I don’t know if this is the place to ask this. I recently switched from Tribe Events and I love this plugin so much more. There is only one issue that I have. Now the ‘Speaker’ function works just fine and does what I want it to do, the only issue is that I don’t want it called Speaker. Is there any way to change the label to something like ‘Performers’?
Did you get any response? I would like to change it from “Speakers” to “Teachers”
