Google Rich Cards Support?

Google is now going to be having Rich Cards, the evolution of rich snippets. It would be great to be an early adopter and have this support. There is going to be a sitemap feature to these as well with webmaster tools preview.

Note: right not its only for recipes and movies, but im sure they'll be rolling more out.

        Good idea, but the title should be "Performers", and include option to change to "Soloists", "Speakers", etc.

        Most of our events are performances. Google Analytics is "warning" us that our events should include a "Performer" attribute in the schema.

        As of Sept 14 the lack of a location -field also causes Google's Search Console to give a "Missing field "location"" -error under Events.

        SEO wise, the Events Calendar prevents rich card feature from google. It's just missing a value for "location" under venue. Unfortunately, there is no "location" field, just Venue.

        Voted! You have our support Charles! We have the same issue trying to use the full power of Google search to promote events.

        Our organization would use this, we're always trying to keep up with current tech and new search engine features.

        Seem simple enough to add to the template
        <code><script type="application/ld+json">
        {
        "@context": "http://schema.org",
        "@type": "Event",
        "name": "Example Band goes to San Francisco",
        "startDate" : "2013-09-14T21:30",
        "url" : "http://example.com/tourdates.html",
        "location" : {
        "@type" : "Place",
        "sameAs" : "http://www.hi-dive.com",
        "name" : "The Hi-Dive",
        "address" : "7 S. Broadway, Denver, CO 80209"
        }
        }
        </script>
        </code>

        In addition to this feature request:

        https://tribe.uservoice.com/forums/195723-feature-ideas/suggestions/12499149-structured-data-offers-error

        I am requesting an enhancement to fully support Google's Structured Data markup,Rich Cards, and future support of Events with AMP.

        In addition to the error for 'Offers' in the feature request above':
        - "Free" is not a valid price specification
        - 'Performer' is recommended

        Without these enhancements, Google does not generate Rich Cards and that defeats the primary purpose of promoting events.
