Event Espresso Importer

Import a list of attendees into Event Espresso so you can send tickets to attendees through email and scan QR codes for check-in to your next event.

Event organizers choose Event Espresso to sell tickets and accept event registrations for classes, workshops, conferences, seminars, courses, and more.

With the Event Espresso Importer add-on, you can import attendees, registrants, and contacts into an upcoming event. Then with the Printable tickets extension, you can optionally email tickets with QR codes so they can be scanned at event check-in with a mobile phone or tablet.

Here are a few ways that our event organizers use the Event Espresso Importer extension for their events:

– Upload a list of students for a training course
– Create an event check-in for an annual conference by uploading a list of registrants
– Upload a list of previous delegates for a meeting
– Upload a list of invitees for a private event
– Import attendee tickets sold elsewhere from a CSV file


Why the Event Espresso Importer?


Why sell event registrations and tickets with a third party?

Sure, you can do that, but is it worth the 4-6.5% service/commission fee for every ticket or registration sold?

Think about event organizers who take a loss on paying these fees.

Other event organizers may be doing that, but things can be different for you. You can gladly say “no thanks” to flushing hundreds or even thousands down the drain in service/commission fees and ticketing fees.

What could your organization do with that money instead?

Use Event Espresso and the Event Espresso Importer extension to create an event registration and ticketing system from your existing WordPress website. You can even use the importer to transfer your attendees from another event platform like Eventbrite.


Our event organizers choose the Event Espresso Importer so they can quickly import attendees and guests into upcoming events.
