Ideal for Less Commercial Events

There are instances in which the event you are organizing will require registration, but for which issuing tickets will be unnecessary. For example, you may be planning a corporate event, holding a large webinar, or organizing an open house at a university. In these cases, you will want those who plan on attending to register, however, they will not need a PDF ticket, or a mobile ticket so none will be issued.

Skip Ticketing

With ticketless registration, attendees will register for events, as usual, however, they will not be sent a PDF ticket. Rest assured, attendees will still be informed of their successful registration withboth a confirmation message after the registration page has been successfully submitted and an automatically generated confirmation e-mail.

While creating ticketless registration is now an option we recommend you only use it when needed. Most attendees will be more comfortable with the traditional set up whether they tickets are free of charge or not.

What Attendees Will See

If you are using ticketless registration for your event the differences will be subtle to attendees. As shown below.

  1. When ticketless registration is enabled attendees will be alerted to their successful registration with a simple “success!” message. When PDF tickets are being issued attendees will be prompted to download their tickets.
  2. While both registrations options issue a registration number when tickets are issued attendees will be able to download them directly from this confirmation screen.

In both cases, a confirmation will be sent to all registered attendees.
