Finding suitable enterprise event management software can be a daunting task. There are a number of different factors you need to consider.
For example, you have to look for a solution that offers stability, has experienced developers, uses best coding practices, and has a knowledgeable support staff. In addition to this, you have to consider if your internal staff has the expertise to implement the new software and the costs associated with deploying it.
With this in mind, in this article, we’ll take a closer look at what features you should look for in an enterprise WordPress events plugin solution for businesses.
Finding the right event ticketing solution can be a challenging and time-consuming task. This is perhaps why many familiar with the popular e-commerce solution WooCommerce will resort to using this platform as a possible solution for selling event tickets.
However, WooCommerce is not designed as an event registration solution and that can impact your bottom line and your events in the long run. As an event organizer, you need a solution that offers features specific to selling tickets and managing your event registrations – like Event Espresso.
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.

For example, there are simple free tools like Events Made Easy or Event Espresso Decaf, which make getting started quick but can be limited in terms of functionality. There are also premium solutions such as Event Espresso (premium version), which won’t come for free but will offer more features.
In this post, we’re going to discuss the pros and cons of going with a free or premium WordPress events plugin. We’ll also introduce two of the most popular options, and help you choose the right one for your site. Let’s jump in! (more…)
