Event web page

When an event is created, EventReference automatically creates a default web page for you with your venue location. The default page shows details of the event, including any text that has been written in the description text box and a map showing where the event is.

If you prefer, this can be switched off, or a completely custom default page created.

Multiple pages with whatever questions you want

EventReference enables you to build comprehensive registration forms with ease. Simply create the questions you want to ask people registering for your event and place them in the order you want them to appear on your registration form.

You can control all the options available for each question and decide whether the questions are mandatory. This allows you to fine tune registration criteria precisely.

Question types

There are multiple different question types available including:

  • Text (both single and multi-line options)
  • Drop-down lists
  • Single-choice lists (radio buttons)
  • Multiple-choice lists (checkboxes)
  • Data fields

EventReference includes 'Administration' questions too. This means you can have questions that are only visible in the admin system. This enables you to keep extra details about delegates and their registration that they don't see.

Available as self-service or project managed.


Different questions for different attendee types

There are many occasions when an organiser wants to ask different questions on the registration form depending on the attendee type. For example, you might want to ask a specific question to VIPs or hosted buyers, and again, something different to a press or media delegate. EventReference makes this incredibly simple by providing the option to select the visibility of a question depending on the attendee type.

Available as self-service or project managed.


Take payments using your merchant account

Whether you are offering free or paid entry, or a combination, it's all powered by EventReference online event management software. You are in complete control of how you decide to manage entry to your event. This includes if you want to charge an entry fee, offer free entry, offer discounts or charge for some elements of your event.

Available as self-service or project managed.


Customise messages that are sent after registration

Once someone has registered for your event you can send them personalised information about the event and their registration. EventReference gives you the power to manage all the content and messages that are used throughout the system, including on-screen messages and emails.

Content management

Our state-of-the-art content management system allows complete customization of the various elements of your pages and communication with people including invites, registration confirmations, e-blasts, and much more.

Of course, you might want to personalise each communication that goes out to the attendees. EventReference allows you to use any field within the registration system inside the content to ensure that everyone is made to feel especially looked after.

Available as self-service or project managed.


Report on everything

EventReference includes a very powerful reporting module. You can analyse registrants by any field in the form, and choose which fields to include in a report, filter the data, and export it to a spreadsheet. It's amazingly easy. Equally impressive is the way you can present the results as a chart.

Available as self-service or project managed.
