We operate in 4 countries and want users to view events/attendees data specific to their own countries only.

How can we limit the access based on country?

Also, if we install eventespresso plugin in several subdomains, can we use the same license? eg.,,

At this time, there isn’t really an easy way to restrict visitors to viewing only events that are in their country. I will add this to the feature request list so our developers are aware of your request.

I would recommend using the Event List shortcode with a category identifier. Set up categories for each country, then use the code below on separate country pages.

[EVENT_LIST category_identifier=your_category_identifier]

Or, if you have venues set up, you can use the venue list shortcode, like so:

[ESPRESSO_VENUE_EVENTS id=your_venue_id]

Subdomains are considered separate sites and will require individual licenses for each subdomain.

One way that would work well would be to have a membership plugin such as S2Member installed as well as Event Espresso.

People would need to register for the site, and you could make it so that they need to register from their country of origin (a page for French people, German, etc) and each of those pages would register a different member level (same rights but the level is important to distinguish them)

Then with EE you could create four pages one for each country using the categories and the Event_List shortcode, and use the S2Member to only show the content if the membership level allows.

It wouldnt eliminate cross country registration ( a Frenchman signing up under the German registration), unless you include some sort of geolocation script.

You would need to do some research on the best way to implement it into your setup.

Sorry I was not clear. When I talked about the users, I was referring to our inhouse administrative staff.

Hence admin team in Country A will not be able to view/export the attendees data in Country B.

This should be possible with the Roles and Permissions Pro add on. You can select inhouse staff to become Event Managers. This role allows them to create and manage events, but they are limited to only being able to see and edit the events they create, as such they can only manage the attendees on those events.
