🗓️ Events Management
There are a lot of building blocks when it comes to an events management platform. We have tried to make it as simple as possible with EventProWP.
Here are some of the features that will help you run an events platform like a pro.
Display Full Events Calendar view or the list view with Map for visitors to filter and sign up for an upcoming event.
Event Submission Form
Users can sign up and submit events from their front-end dashboards without back-end access. Users can also edit or delete events after submission. To add a new event, the user must first create an Event Group. The site admin can also create and add events from the backend.
Event organizers can now easily host repeated events whether it’s daily, weekly, monthly, or annually.
Organize Events with Groups
Event organizers can create event groups that are like a virtual community where they can find people with similar interests. Events Group is a new post type introduced in EventProWP.
Host Online or Virtual Events
In addition to Live or In-Person events, users can organize Online or Virtual events such as meetups, conferences, workshops, etc.
Finding The Right Event Made Easy
Allow users to search for events by category, name, and location. Further users can filter by timeframes such as today, this week, this month, or even an exact date. In addition, users can choose to filter based on online events and upcoming events.
If users want to see what’s happening nearest to them then they can hit the Near Me button and set the radius. Finally, the sort-by can help find the most popular event based on the most attendees.
Event Start and End Time with a Countdown
Event organizers can create an event with only a starting date and time. They can also choose to add the date and time when the event ends.
The built-in Time-to-Start countdown and a Time-to-End countdown can create a sense of urgency, which may help increase the conversion rate.
Display Attendees and Members
Publicly showing who is attending the events or who joined a group as a member, creates an experience that encourages people to interact more and build a more engaging community.
