If you're in charge of conference registration, and you want to make the process easier to manage, you might want to consider using an automated, online system. If you're worried about getting your conference attendees to switch to online registration, there are a few things you can do to make online registration more appealing. These simple tips should help to increase the flow of online registration for your next event.

Switching to Online Registration

One of the best ways to get people to register online for your conference is to make the registration form easy to locate. It's never a good idea to put your registration form in a password protected part of your website. If you send out promotional e-mails to previous conference attendees, it's wise to also send the web address, or URL, for your registration form.

Another way to convince conference attendees to register online is to make the form as secure as possible. One thing that helps to instill confidence in online transmissions is to include the lock symbol near the part of the form where customers enter credit card information. Many attendees won't submit sensitive personal information unless they see this symbol, or another security icon on your registration form.

Finally, if you want your attendees to register for your conference online, you have to make the process as simple as possible. Many people still hold fast to the traditional way of manually registering for conferences and events. If you keep the registration form simple, asking only for the a few mandatory fields, you reduce the risk of chasing off potential clients.
