Here at Event Espresso, we’re really excited for the new page/post editor coming to WordPress and we’ve been investing time over the last year in preparing our plugin for the changes. In this article, I want to share with you what you can expect with Event Espresso when you upgrade your site to WordPress 5.0, and also give you a little bit of a preview into what we’re working on for the coming months.
I want to share what tools I’ve found useful for managing my events. First, I’ll introduce Meetup.com for those who are unfamiliar with it, and describe how it helps me to publicize my events. Then, I’ll describe why I also have a self-hosted WordPress website using Event Espresso. Lastly, I’ll share some other plugins I’ve found helpful. I hope sharing my experience will be useful to anyone who is looking to explore more ways to manage their own events using some of today’s innovative event registration and networking tools.

If you’re running an event ticketing business, you probably collect a lot of important information from attendees on your website. This may include:
Usernames and passwords.
Payment information (credit card numbers, bank details)
Billing information (street address, phone numbers)
As a business owner, it’s important to make sure your event ticketing website is secure and protected against threats. By doing so, you can rest assured that your website will continue to run without any hiccups and your attendees’ personal information will be secure. Read More
Whether you’re selling tickets to a stand-up comedy night or an international conference, you’ll need an event registration system. This type of solution will let you display information about your event, register guests, and even accept event payments. The key lies in choosing the right tool to help with your event.
If you’re looking for a fully-featured event registration system for your WordPress website, you’ll probably end up considering both Events Manager and Event Espresso. Each plugin offers a lot of features out of the box, but you’ll need to decide which one is right for your website.
In this post, we’ll help you answer that question. We’ll look at the basics of event registration systems, then compare the two WordPress plugins and see what they have to offer. Let’s get to it! Read More
As an event organizer, you probably have a process in place that allows prospective attendees to register for your events. You might be asking them to download a registration form, fill it out, and mail it to you or scan it and email it to you, or you might be using some sort of hosted event registration solution on a subscription basis, like Event Smart.
While it may cost you a little bit more money upfront, having your own event registration website certainly has its benefits:
The website – and everything you publish on it – belongs to you.
It gives you more control and flexibility.
You’re able to extend its functionality.
Your attendees’ data is stored on your systems – not a third-party site.
WordPress as a website platform offers many awesome features for publishing a blog or building a basic website out of the box. However, something that’s sorely lacking for event managers is the ability to offer event registration and ticketing on their site. Therefore, if you want to sell tickets to your events, you’ll need to choose a plugin that is dedicated to event registration and ticketing.
The good news is that there are plenty of event registration plugins available, so many in fact, that it can be difficult to find the one that’s ideal for you. The easiest way to pick the best tool is to thoroughly compare the most significant pros and cons of the top event plugins. Recommendations from friends and colleagues is a good place to start your search, but just because one event plugin was right for one event organizer and their website, your situation might be different, and another event plugin might work better for you.
In this article, we’re going to look at two event-focused plugins: The Events Calendar and Event Espresso. We’ll talk about what features they offer, their pricing, and more. Let’s get started!
As a non-profit organization, event planning can be pretty difficult. While the limited availability of funds doesn’t help the problem, a website with the right plugins can be the perfect, cost-effective workaround.
The good news is that with WordPress you can supercharge your non-profit website to organize events, accept donations, and manage volunteers. With this in mind, in this post, we’ll share some of the best WordPress plugins you’ll need on your website to plan, organize, and manage events. Read More
By default, WordPress provides a lot of features you can use to design your website. However, certain functionality can only be added through plugins or integrations. If you’re looking to enable online event registration and ticketing on your site, for example, you can’t do that with just WordPress posts or pages, you’ll need an additional tool. Fortunately, there are plenty of solutions you can use to let visitors view and sign up for events. The trick lies in selecting a perfect fit for your needs and budget. Doing this is simple, as long as you understand the pros and cons of each option. In this post, we’ll look at two of the most popular, but very different, event registration tools – Eventbrite and Event Espresso. We’ll compare them on several key criteria, to help you decide which one you need. Let’s take a look!Read More
