9 WordPress Event Plugins for Your Conference or Event Website

Now that you are thinking about moving your conference or event website, it is time to start thinking about how you are actually going to register your attendees.

Many of the online registration services have plugins that can be used with your WordPress site and those include EventBrite and RegOnline. These are great services that power some of the largest events on the planet but sometimes, you want to do everything in-house.

This list is for those people, those trailblazers that want to manage the entire process themselves and not spend a million dollars for a service that not all events need.

For those hearty souls, here is a look at some of the event registration plugins that are available, some are free, some are paid and all are linked.

I am not reviewing each plugin because to be honest, I have used some and others I have not so although I have opinions, I cannot be fair to all of them and that would not be cool.

I will say, you can tell a lot about the plugin by looking at the screenshot.
