Convention Registration

For years, people registered for conventions by mailing in forms, or by faxing them in to convention offices. While this process was effective, it was hardly efficient. In the last couple of years more and more people have turned to online registration for conventions, trade shows, training seminars, and just about any other organized event you can think of.

Join the Trend in Online Registration

One of the key advantages of online registration is the ability to register at all hours of the day. People can log onto your website and submit the registration form no matter where they are or what time it is. Because the system is automatically updated, new reservations are added immediately. This helps to increase registration numbers, and also helps to ensure that you don't overbook your event.

When you use an online convention registration system, a confirmation letter is sent immediately to the attendee. If someone registers for your event at the last minute, he can print up this confirmation letter, and bring it to the event. When you log event registrations manually, last minute additions or changes are often lost or misplaced. This creates confusion and chaos on the day of the event, and often leaves attendees feeling frustrated and angry.

One final advantage of online registration is the ability to control and monitor the payment process. Rather than waiting to receive a check or money order in the mail, payments post online immediately. This helps to ensure that every seat you reserve is paid for, and helps to eliminate loss due to unavailable funds. When people pay the registration fee online, the payment is posted immediately using safe and secure credit processing systems.
