I've been trying to figure out how to add locations for special events (conventions, tradeshows, etc). So far no luck. What's the procedure for doing so? Some of these events I can visit beforehand if a GPS check-in is required, but many of them I'm unable to visit (as we may be sending sales people to an event a thousand miles away from where I am).

That helps, I think I'll need an "event" of some type, but how do I make it for a place other than where I'm currently located? – Brian Knoblauch Feb 22 '13 at 13:17

Just type "Event" for the category.
