Effortless event management through WordPress calendar integration

There’s a good reason that 800,000 people, including pioneering organisations such as Microsoft, Warner Brothers and Harvard University, trust WordPress to power their events.

WordPress offers countless ways to tailor unique calendars through a fully flexible and totally customisable plugin, which will work seamlessly with your platform. 

Not only are the calendar formats aesthetically engaging, but they are also intuitive and built with usability at their core. Using our expertise with events systems we will be able to ensure your website is fully integrated with internal events and external APIs. This will ensure both the booking of events, management of in-person and virtual meetings, and sharing of resources is an effortless process.

As building your website in WordPress allows multiple sites to be hosted in a single installation, it allows you to easily manage and share event features across varying platforms, whilst each still maintains its own independence. 

WordPress CMS event management facilities

We’ll begin with an initial phase of migrating any current events you may have into WordPress. With the migrated events or any new events that you create, you’ll have access to:

  • Full event management all handled in one location.
  • Online bookings with or without payment. This will enable you to create tickets right from your WordPress dashboard, meaning you’ll have no extra ticket processing fees. 
  • Payment facilities such as PayPal, Stripe, Hubspot and more.
  • Management and registration of ticket sales for your free or paid virtual events.
  • Generate ticket insights, with specific sales and attendance reports.
  • On-site event management. This includes options such as a mobile ticketing app or a QR code check-in process, making the event day a breeze to manage. 
  • The ability to automate your ticketing workflow. 
  • Creation of Eventbrite tickets and events from your dashboard.

Advanced WordPress event tools

Advanced WordPress tools will enable you to make the most of your events by building your brand, bolstering attendance, and connecting with your audience. This can be achieved through event features that include: 

  • Customisable themes which incorporate your organisation’s branding.
  • Accessible calendar navigation and responsive views to make it easy to find events on the go across a magnitude of devices. 
  • Strong event categorisation and taxonomy to streamline engagement and increase attendance.
  • Multiple calendar views, integrating seamlessly with your theme. Through widgets, we can display your events through striking photos, maps, summaries, and varying date formats. 
  • Embedded event countdown clocks to help create a buzz. 
  • Simplistic calendar import options, which allows users to easily subscribe to event updates through iCalendars or Google Calendars.
  • Automatic ticket counts with stock countdowns to let customers know how many tickets are left and urge them to make that all important purchase.
  • Customised email confirmations to keep attendees in-the-know of updates.
  • Digital wallets and downloadable PDF tickets for easy event access.

Creating accessible events for all to attend

Due to calendar plugins having a responsive design and our team’s in-depth knowledge of digital accessibility, we can also craft bespoke coding to ensure that all your events will be accessible for users of assistive technology. In turn, ensuring everyone will have equal access to interact with and enjoy the experiences you have available no matter what device or software they may use.
