Setup online registration and ticketing for a business conferences
This is an example of the business conference website page you can build with the various ticket options. It can also look differently based on the theme you choose.
Here is an video screencast of the front-end registration for purchasing two Early-bird Member tickets (best viewed in high-definition):
Business Conference Title
Describe your business conference with a descriptive title, keywords or brand name. In this case I used “#EventConf 2016” to describe the business conference for event professionals. The name of the business conference is important because it is used as the default title of the page for search engines and can help bring traffic to your event website. You can alter the “machine friendly” name of your church event via the Search Engine Optimization meta box further down the page (not shown).
Business Conference Description
The description of your business conference is your chance to describe the experience attendees will have. Describe the Agenda, the type of sesions, networking activities, guest speakers, keynote speakers, examinations, pre-conference sessions, post-conference sessions, demonstrations, ventdors, booths, etc. You can post impressive photos, video, or testimonials from prior business conferences too to people excited to attend.
Business Conference Venue
You can add the address information for the location/venue of each business conference or session, or with the Advanced Venue Management upgrade you can create profiles of venues and re-use the venue profile again and again for other business conferences or events.
Business Conference Datetimes & Tickets
The business conference could be a on-time session, or be organized with various sessions. In this example we have a pre-conference registration, the main business conference session, and the post-conference sessions.
But if your business conference occurs on just one date and time, then one dateteime would be sufficient. If your business conference occurs on multiple dates and times, then you might want to create multiple datetimes and create tickets specific to those additional datetimes or events. You can then create tickets that grant access to one or multiple sessions of a conference (datetime).
We are also selling ticket to the pre-conference and post-conference tickets individually, along with early-bird tickets, student tickets, and regular tickets. The early-bird tickets create an incentive for people to register early so you can collect your cash before you start incurring all the expenses. We don’t use all these types of tickets, but potentially you could have a lot of other conference ticket options, including:
- Optional events
Online registration and ticketing for business conferences is easy and you have a lot of options.
Primary & Additional Attendees/Tickets
You can decide to collect the personal information from the Primary Attendee (first person registering) and Additional Registrants (subsequent registrants) via the meta boxes for these groups individually. Select the question groups associated with the questions you would like to ask each group respectively.
You can create custom registration forms (Advanced Registration Forms upgrade) to collect more detailed information from your audience to make sure you can give them the best experience at your business conference.
Business Conference Settings
Depending on how you want to handle your business conference online registrations tickets, you can also control individual settings, including:
- Search Engine Optimization
- Maximum number of tickets allowed per order for this art class
- Display Ticket Selector (I would recommend leaving the ticket selector ON, so people can buy the tickets)
- Event Phone Number
- Default Registration Status
- Featured Image
Business Conference Emails & Tickets
When your audience registers, they will receive a confirmation of their registration based on their payment status. If their payment is not successful, they will be sent an email to make a payment. As soon as your audience makes a payment, they will be sent a default registration confirmation.
Business Conference Custom Tickets
With the Advanced and Customized Messages upgrades, you can change the format and information on the ticket that your attendees receive. You can encourage your attendees to bring their ticket and maybe even get it signed as a souvenir.
Business Conference Calendar
When you begin to schedule multiple business conferences, the Calendar upgrade becomes very helpful for attendees to find events and sessions based on a certain date or category. If your business conference has a lengthy agena or a lot of sessions, then a calendar for your business conference becomes even more important. You can even add images to the calendar to add even more excitement.
Schedule/Agenda, Exhibit Hall, Exhibitor Resources, Venue, Travel Page
If your business conference is large enough, you will want to create several informational pages (upgrade) dedicated to the conference agenda/schedule, exhibit hall, exhibitor resources, venue, and travel.
