Sessions on different registration pages

  • 1.  Sessions on different registration pages

    Posted 04-27-2021 12:25
    Our biggest conference is coming up and and we would love to spread out the sessions on 4 different pages - one page for each day.  Our event has lots of breakouts, optional meetings and meal functions.  If we put everything on one page (sessions page) it will be very long and I'm concerned our registrants may miss some of the options.

    Any ideas?

    Kim,

    That's a tough one as I don't think there's a way to limit the sessions that appear by day or any other category. Unless someone chimes in with a different idea, I have a suggestion.

    Instead of showing the sessions the way that Cvent does, create multiple registration pages using images, spaces and text to show the agenda of each day. When it comes to selecting a break-out, you can do a registration question.  The positive is that you can get it all looking the way you want, but the negative is that you would put all the data in twice.

    What if you use a filter in the sessions widget. Each page can be a category, or note?

    Thanks Edd and Steven!  I'll try your suggestions and see which works best for this event.

    Steven, I have a follow up question.  That was a great suggestion.  My only worry is making sure registrants click on the category dropdown box to make selections for each day of the conference.  I can picture them clicking "next" before moving on two day 2, 3, etc.


    Thanks again!
    Kim

    I haven't used that function. I made a clone of my registration to see what it looked like. I filtered by custom note. Each session note was the day of the session. I thought by filter you can create different session pages and YOU chose the filter for each page,
    Session page 1, Custom Note = MONDAY. Session page 2, Custom Note - TUESDAY.

    I can see attendees missing sessions unless you create a custom rule somehow.

    Added: Actually, I think it might work. I don't know what determines the sort order though.
