Online Meeting Registration for Meeting Planner
Using online event registration software can increase attendance to your events and decrease your costs. A well thought out registration solution combines advanced functionality with a user-friendly interface, allowing the meeting registration manager to design a specialized registration process for your audience.
Frankly, you should be past having guests phone in, fax or even email their registrations. You know quite well, that you really end up doing many steps to register people this way.
You should be able to have a link to your registration page from your event website, so you are making it easy for potential attendees to register.
Collect critical registrant data. Instead of collecting information from your attendees and keying that data into another program you should be able to have all the data collection as part of the process. Why do you want that? This would be used for future meeting and event promotions. In addition, a very powerful thing is that you collect demographics and thus know who exactly is your client base.
A good system will enable you to build a dynamic, multi-track, multi-session online event registration.
You should easily be able to create custom name badges from the online registration system.
Your system should be able to be linked to a merchant account for credit card processing.
It should also allow you to have a waitlist. (Don’t you wish that all your events needed to have a waitlist??!!)
Clearly, using an online registration system will ultimately make the registration process and attendee management process pretty streamlined. You will have up to the minute numbers for your guarantees. That in itself is wonderful.
If until now, you have had an assistant handle this, or you stay late for weeks prior to your event taking care of registration updates and you’re not inclined to learn a new method, why not outsource the entire thing. Then you can concentrate on the plethora of things that you must do to plan and coordinate your event.
