Show amount of events for each pin marker in Map View
For now if i have many events in one place, i only have on point. It could be nice to show in some way that this is a multi events place.
We’ve got an extension that allows you to show all the event tickets at a given location in map view. Check it out! https://theeventscalendar.com/extensions/google-maps-multiple-events-same-venue/

Improve Map View for multiple events in the same venue.
Map View displays only one event for each venue in the map. It would be great if:
1) for each venue in the map, the popup shows the list of all the events happening there
2) the popup info for the events should include also the date and time of the event; and possibly also the featured image
I feel that Map View is extremely useful and deserves some improvement.
Please consider the following examples from booking.com and groupon.com:
Multiple events at the same location are practically invisible due to pin-stacking.
- cluster pins around a location depending on the number (not sure how simple this would be or how much the pin accuracy might suffer)
Show a single pin for each location. Where there are multiple events at the same location, show list ALL these events on the pin click (i.e. where you currently get just one event listed when clicking on the visible/top pin for the location, show a list with links of ALL events at that location)
Currently, the way multiple events at one venue are handled in just about the worst possible way: the only pin that shows on the map is the one that corresponds to the event FURTHEST in the future. Users have to actually look at the list of events to know that there is 1 or more events at that venue that occur sooner. Not good UI.
I would advocate for having the pin display a list of all the events at that location.
Until this is fixed, the map view is seriously flawed in my opinion.
Thanks for your feedback. Keep the ideas coming!
I also have multiple events per location and would like to have more options here.
Useful options for our usecase:
- don't put any information on the pin
- link the pin to the venue-page

Currently, multiple events at a single location display as a stack of pins, and users can only get event details for one event. It would be great to support pin clustering for events at the same location or at nearby locations.

Also another way for transportation vendors to sell tickets. +1
