“Registrants stated that it was much easier to use than in previous years”

The best event plugin system we have used! We just closed registration for a girls/ladies conference at our church next month. This year we have over 400 registrants and only a few were mail-ins. Everyone else registered on our website, which is running Event Espresso 4. We had to close registration early because we are at capacity! We had fewer duplicate registrations this year than in years past using other software. We also received a lot of compliments on the “new system”. Registrants stated that it was much easier to use than in previous years. –amandaleigh
