You’ve planned a great event, and now it’s time to let people know. You can use Eventbrite to organize your registration, but there are also things you can do as an organizer to make the process more personalized for attendees.
Here’s how to personalize your event registration experience:

Provide access to your event website
Now that you have all your attendees’ information, it’s time to give them access to your event website. This is important because most people will want more information about the event than what is provided in the registration form itself.
If they don’t have access, they may worry that there is something wrong with their registration or become frustrated when trying to find an answer.
The best way to give attendees access is through an email containing a link that takes them directly to the event website, where they can learn more about what’s going on at the event (and who knows? Maybe they’ll even want to buy tickets!).
You should also make sure this link works from mobile devices, so people can view it while on the go!
Invite attendees to create a profile
A profile is a personal space that allows attendees to interact with your event and make it their own. It’s like a social media page but for events.
A profile allows attendees to:
Collect attendee contact information
To collect attendee contact information, you’ll need to use a registration form. You can either create one yourself or use event management API tools like Eventtia that will do it for you.
Share information with them in advance of the event
You can share information about your event with attendees in a number of ways.
Provide reminders, updates, and details leading up to the event
As the event approaches, be sure to send reminders and updates.
Offer personalized content on-site at registration tables and check-in desks

Use social media to communicate with attendees during the event
Social media is a great way to communicate with attendees during an event. You can use social media as a channel for answering questions and providing updates, sharing photos and videos, providing information on where to meet, how to get there, and more.
If you have an app or website that attendees will be using before or during the event (e.g., RSVPing), consider integrating social media accounts into it so that they can sign up for updates there instead of having them enter all their information again on Facebook or Twitter.
Use online event registration software
If you’re looking to personalize the registration experience for attendees, online event registration software is a great place to start.
Online registration allows attendees to register from anywhere and on their own time, which can be especially helpful for those who are unable to make it during business hours or have limited mobility.
When choosing an online event registration platform, look for one that has these features:
