Using EE/MER for Conference Class Registration, Need a Conference Fee

I’m using EE to host registration for an in-person conference. I’m using EE 3 and Multi Event Registration. Each class (event) has a price, but I also need to place a fee to attend the conference itself. I was thinking of adding it as another “class” (event), but I can’t make it mandatory to register for that. Is there a way this can be done? Thanks for your help!

The details:

Event Espresso version 3.1.36.5.P
WordPress version WP 3.8.3
Installed plugins
Event Espresso – Custom Template Display by Event Espresso version 1.0,
Event Espresso – Multi Event Registration by Seth Shoultes version 1.0.5.p,
Event Espresso by Event Espresso version 3.1.36.5.P,

Hi Chris,

Could you roll the conference fee into the pricing of the existing tickets?

Hi Lorenzo, thanks for the quick reply. I’m setting this up for a non-profit, so I’ll have to ask if they want to change their pricing structure. I assume from your answer that this isn’t possible? Any hints you could provide or other ways to implement this would be helpful. Thanks again!

Hi,

Not easily with that set up. If you make it an event, it isn’t required. If you make it a question (via the Price Modifier beta addon) then it will be added to all or select events, and not necessarily the ones they buy. A such you will over or under charge them. Same thing with using surcharges.

You could set it up so that the site itself is the event, and charge a membership fee and then use EE to register people for the sub events.

Hi Dean, thanks for the help. How would I go about your second suggestion, setting up the site itself as an event? Also, I thought the Price Modifier beta didn’t work with Multi Event Registration.

Hi Chris,

How would I go about your second suggestion, setting up the site itself as an event?

Turn the site into a membership site. Use some thing like S2Member or another membership plugin and the WP User Integration plugin from us. This will allow you to limit access to specific pages unless they are registered users, and to become a registered user you need to pay (thus they pay for the main event).

You could even have the pages accessible and use WP User Integration to make them member only.

Also, I thought the Price Modifier beta didn’t work with Multi Event Registration.

You are absolutely right, it doesn’t. It is still a potential option, but yeah you would need to stop using MER.

Thanks, Dean. Is it possible to send registrants to one event (conference registration) and then redirect them on the registration for all classes at the conference?

Hmm, well there isn’t a redirect built in but you could in theory edit the payment overview template to add in a conditional. My thinking is if it is X event id, then it will show a link to the cart and you can add all the events to cart, or send them to a page if you prefer.

You could add in a little bit of javascript as well to send them to that page after X amount of time:

(very very basic javascript, don’t use as is.)

<script type="text/javascript">

setTimeout(function () {
window.location.href = "sample-page";
}, 2000); 

</script>
