2. WordPress Events Calendar Registration and Booking
If you’re promoting an event, you’ll probably want to tell the world about it via your website. For this, I highly recommend the WordPress Events Calendar plugin.
The plugin allows you to create beautiful, stylish event “cards”. Add these cards to any post or page by pasting a shortcode, or by using a dedicated widget. You can also add a big featured image at the top of your event card, plus you can display all the event’s key information, as well as interactive features like a Google map and countdown clock. Plus there are options to customize the color scheme, with a choice of unlimited colors.
Beyond this, WordPress Events Calendar is an effective management tool for your events. Visitors can register to attend your event, and you can configure a custom registration form to collect only the information you need. You can also sell tickets for your event, with guests able to pay via PayPal. You can create various ticket prices (for example, standard and VIP pricing), and you can create time-sensitive coupon codes, too.
If you run multiple events, the plugin supports a calendar view, providing a convenient, visual overview of where and when your events are happening. You can add recurring events automatically to the calendar, plus you can color code events in the same categories. To aid visitors, the calendar is filterable, too.
