Event Organiser vs. Event Espresso: Which WordPress Plugin Is For You?

What’s the best way to manage your event registrations in WordPress?

In this article we will compare two popular WordPress plugins for event management: Event Organiser and Event Espresso.

Promoting your events online is vital to ensuring that attendance is high. Running an event registration and ticketing website lets you make the key details about your events easily accessible, such as dates, times, and locations. However, sharing information is only one aspect of hosting a successful event.

In fact, you can actually use your website to manage your events – before, during, and after. As long as you use the right tools, you can streamline the process of attracting attention, selling tickets and registrations, tracking attendance, and much more.

Should You Go Free or Premium for Your Events Website?

Comparing Events Made Easy vs Event Espresso: Should You Go Free or Premium for Your Events Website?

 

If you’re looking to offer online event registration and ticketing on your WordPress website, you’ll need a specially-designed tool. WordPress doesn’t offer any features to help you display events and sell tickets, but you can do those things (and more) with the right WordPress events plugin.
