Hi Pankaj,

As you are inserting event field in the email template, So select Event Fields form the Select Field Type and select the event standard and custom field from the Select Field and copy the field from Copy Merge Field Value and paste that field in the email template.As show in the screen shot:

In Event field descritpion is the Long Text Area but it show as the normal field but you create the new event and if you create the new custom field in the activity custom field the there is not any option to create Long Text Area field , so its for this reason it should not be visible in the email template.

Did you ever get an answer to your question.  We are in the same spot.  We have a button on the Event page layout to open an email template with Event Merge fields and they are not being populated.

Any resoluntion on this?  I'd love insight into whether the Events fields can be used to create confirmation emails...

Me too!
<p class=MsoNormal>Hi {!Contact.FirstName},</p> Shows
<p>{!Account.BillingAddress}</p> Shows
<p>{!Event.Location_Copy__c}<p> Doesn't Show
<p>{!Event.Subject}<p> Doesn't Show
<p>{!NullValue(Event.StatDateTime, "[should show activity date]")}</p> Shows [should show activity date]
So it seems the event object isn't available to the email.
