Property Name



To specify the identifier for the time zone definition for a venue component.


The use of the TZID property within VVENUE is substantially similar to the use of the TZID parameter specified in RFC 2445 (iCalendar), extended to specify the time zone of a venue component.

Where the TZID parameter specifies the identifier for the time zone definition for a time component, the TZID property conveys the same information for a venue component.

Time zone calendar components may be shared between venue components and other components. For instance, a venue component and an event component may both point to the same timezone component.

Need to test your iCalendar feeds?

The iCalendar Validator provides developers and testers a method to validate their iCalendar feeds, which can take data from either a URL, file or text snippet and compare it against the RFC 5545 specification.  We believe we have one of the best iCalendar validation tools available on the internet. More information about the validator can be found here.
