Hosting a Series

As described in our event types page, salon series are longer sequences of salons, with the opportunity for a discounted series tickets for the entire show (requiring a community membership).

You may want to list a series if:

  • Your topic is longer, more in-depth, and can have multiple spinoff discussions
  • You want to investigate a topic with the same attendees again and again
  • You’re conducting research over a period of time and want to work on insights on a topic with a team

In addition to the conditions in the Host Agreement, there are some special considerations to bear in mind when listing salon series and “tracks” (recurring salons without series ticket or end date).

How to List a Series

  • Fill out a Series Page form. After you submit, the Interintellect editorial team will review your event prior to publishing and send you a draft of your “Series Page.” If we have any questions or suggestions on how to help improve your listing, you’ll receive an email from us.
  • Submit individual episodes as separate salons so they are clickable as an individual event with its own description. This way, your attendees will be able to purchase any of your episodes individually, and you will be able to track your individual episode sales on your Event Dashboard.* (Tip: You can always use the same description text from your series page, and add a few questions or additional readings to keep it simple. Elaine’s series is a great example of this.)

About Series Ticket Prices

“Series tickets” work differently than single episode ticket sales. They give access to every salon in a series and are sold to members at a discounted price (because en bulk), guaranteeing attendance throughout the series (detailed more in the pricing FAQ and host agreement).

When listing a series, please give both the individual ticket price and the series ticket price.
Note: Free codes do NOT apply to series as a whole. Only individual salons!

Because our Series Tickets require an ii membership subscription, ii will not take a platform fee on Salon Series Ticket purchases. We keep the subscription fee, the Host keeps all of the ticket proceeds (except for local taxes, Stripe fees, and Memberful fees).

However, if attendees purchase tickets to an individual Salon in the series, the standard rules apply:

Host earns 70% of Individual Salon Sales (see below for breakdown)

Members: After discount, (30% off for Members) don’t take any cut

Non-members: After full-priced non-member ticket, ii has a 30% platform fee (subject to change). The remainder goes to the Host.

Hosts get paid after each Salon Series Episode.

Revenue is calculated as follows:

(1) Revenue from Individual Salon Sales (see above)

(2) A proportionate slice of Series Tickets, (i.e. if there are 8 Salon episodes, then ⅛ of the Series Ticket proceeds are paid out after each episode has been hosted)


Here are our conditions about cancelling series hosting or participation:

1. Host cancels series

Unless there is force majeure or the host finds a replacement, cancelling will disqualify the host for 6 months.

We give the audience the choice of a) full refund for cancelled sessions or b) a replacement host wherever possible.

2. Attendee cancels after series has started

No refunds (unless force majeure, which can mean partial refund); in some cases switching to another series will be possible.


Tracks qualify as any other one-off salon with the difference that they get their own pages and URLs on the website with “save the dates” section.

However, if more than 5 “save the dates” are listed on the page (i.e. “Upcoming episodes in this track”), the same cancellation policy applies as for a series: in absence of proven force majeure, the host is disqualified from hosting for 6 months.
