The Swamp of Event Registration
Wading through the event registration swamp is nasty business. There is quicksand and alligators just waiting to bite or pull the unsuspecting association person under the water at a moment’s notice, taking with them a large chunk of potential revenue.
Instead of mosquitos, conference planners find that they keep getting bitten by per registrant fees, credit card fees, and service fees. You look at some of this stuff and wonder if the registration companies are copying the business model of the airlines.
- 450 registrants x $5 per registrant x Credit Card Fees x Weird Makes no Sense Fee = Insane Amount of Money.
That weird fee was basically charging my client a fee to use their own credit card processor (what???). In my mind, that is a penalty… Not a fee. All of this money for simply gathering (easy) data and using the client’s Stripe account.
