“We particularly appreciated that it was easy to set up”

We are an international non-governmental organisation and we used Event Espresso for processing registrations to our international congress. We had a very positive experience with Event Espresso and we particularly appreciated that it was easy to set up as well as much cheaper compared to other platforms. The interface is also really user-friendly, which enabled our members to experience a really smooth registration process. Finally, it was great to benefit from such a quick and reliable customer support! –Elena Carson
