10times keeps past events listed and does not remove them. Here are some reasons why that is helpful to you:
- In case the event is happening in the same city again anytime in the future, all you will have to do is simply enter the latest dates of that event. As soon as that's done, the system will re-invite all old leads from that region. Just in case the event is more than 5 years old and has not happened even once in between, the event automatically gets Archived.
- When a 10times user expresses interest, that event gets bookmarked in their calendar. If we remove the event, the bookmark would not appear anymore thereby confusing the user and giving an impression like it got lost.
- Organizer reputation and rating is also based on the number of events organized / hosted by them till date. The higher the number of events, the higher is the organizer rating. This rating positively affects your profile.
- Removing an event will delete all associated data like leads, bookmarks, exhibitor requests, messages, connections, editions etc. - which is not advisable.
