Design a Great Event Page with a Custom Header

For those of you who want personalization for your event page beyond what our website theme selection offers, our custom header feature can help you achieve just this!

With website theme selection, the details of your event title, date, and location will be shown below the banner image, whether or not your banner already contains that information. But what if you want to display a different text or set a different style of text for your caption below your image?
As you can see from the event page above, the custom header feature can help you avoid repeating the same information and allows you to freely utilize the space to briefly explain your event or add any other information you want your guests to notice! Or if you want to simply change the alignment or color of your text, you can utilize this feature too!

Custom Header Features

  1. Change text. 
  2. Personalize font style, font size, and color.
  3. Change alignment.
  4. Add a bullet list.
  5. Insert a link.

Customize Your Event Page With Website Theme Selection

Want to add a little zest to your event page?  Now you can select from 3 stunning website themes to tailor your event page and attract more attendees!

 

Default

The default theme lays out all the details of your event in a comprehensive and compact design. Details of the event are displayed in a two-column layout, and visitors to the event page are able to attain most or all of the event details at a single glance. When registering for the event, visitors will be redirected to the ticket information page.

Creative

With the creative theme, your event name, date, location  and registration button are displayed within the header. This keeps your event page crisp and tidy, suitable for those of you who do not have event details in your header picture. This also encourages visitors to register for your event, since it is the first thing they see when they visit your event page! Details of the event are displayed in a one-column layout, and visitors are able to view ticket information and register for the event on the page itself.

Inspire

If you can’t decide between the default theme and creative theme, the inspire theme is a hybrid of the two! It is similar to the default theme in terms of header layout, but visitors are able to view ticket information and register for the event on the page itself, just like the creative theme. The ticket information falls right below the header in a wide one-column layout, while other event details are separated into a tidy two-column layout.

Maximize Sales Through Ticket Tier Pricing (ex: Early Bird Rate)

Do you know that EventNook’s ticket tier pricing feature allows organizers to set multiple ticket types?  

Wouldn’t you want your guests to purchase their tickets early rather than last-minute? What better way to encourage guests to attend your event than by offering them a special discount for purchasing their tickets early?

Setting “ticket tier pricing” benefits you as an organizer because it encourages potential attendees to immediately act and purchase tickets upon knowing about the event. This reduces the risk that they will forget about the event when they decide to purchase tickets at a later date.

Utilize this feature now to maximize your event management process and encourage more sales!

EventNook Launches Self-Serve Check-in Kiosk App

To accommodate event organizers who are planning to host big events with minimal staff, EventNook has just launched a self-service Kiosk app that supports event organizers to try a more hands-off approach and allow attendees to check-in on their own.

The EventNook Kiosk Check-in Manager is a comprehensive tool that is designed to support medium to large-scale events and allows event organizers to conveniently manage onsite event registration and make sure everything runs smoothly on the event day. The app is now available for download on the app store.

Through the app, event organizers are greeted by a simple user interface where they can manage the event and guest check-ins through a real-time dashboard.

The kiosk app allows users to check-in efficiently through a QR code, which they receive upon the completion of their registration online. On the actual event day, they can simply scan their QR code to check-in for the event. For guests who have trouble finding the confirmation email, the Kiosk app also allows event organizers to check in their guests manually by searching for their name or ticket ID.

Here are some key features of EventNook’s Kiosk App:

1. Kiosk (Self Check-in) Feature

To save event organizers time and energy of having to redirect guests, the Kiosk Feature now displays a message to prompt guests on to the next course of action upon checking in.

The message displayed on the screen can be customized by the event organizer to anything they want to convey to their guests. Be it a warm WELCOME message directing them to the conference room, or a sheepish SORRY message for customers who have brought an invalid QR code.

2. Onsite Registration for Walk-in Guests

Through the Kiosk app, guests are now able to register and check-in for the event on the spot! This means that event organizers no longer have to turn away guests who have not registered for the event beforehand.

3. Easy Search

No QR code? No problem. The Kiosk app allows attendees to check-in manually for the event. This latest release also features an ENLARGED search text box to accommodate the less keen-sighted customers.

5 ways to celebrate Fathers’ Day & more parenting events

A son’s first hero, a daughter’s first love – fathers indeed. This Sunday 15 June, let us all gather our love, gratitude and immense respect for our first hero and first love to celebrate Father’s Day 2014. While we were all busy growing up, spending more time in school, at work or with our friends, we might have forgotten the one who was silently supporting us behind our back.

Here are 5 simple things you can do for/with your Super Dad this Father’s Day.

1. Whip up a meal for him

You do not need to be Gordon Ramsey or Martin Yan in the kitchen, just prepare a simple meal or dessert that your dad love it, and I am sure it will put a smile on his face. If you have no idea where you can start from, you can start googling for recipes or meat dishes could be the recipe you are looking for! Alternatively, you can choose to bring daddy dearest out for a meal to pamper him with his favourite cuisine or gourmet.

2. Catch a show/movie CBTDCheaper by the Dozen 2, a family comedy about a dad and his 12 children

Spend some quality time with your father by watching his favourite drama or movie with him, or you can be the one picking the show. Choose something hilarious for you and your dad to unwind and bond with one another through laughter. Create happy moments with him on this day especially if you are really busy at school or at work.

3. Have a game or two

You can sit down somewhere with your dad and have a few rounds of Chinese chess or English chess with him. Alternatively, if your family enjoy doing sports you can have a few rounds of racquet or ball games with him. This is a good opportunity for you and your dad to sweat it out despite busy schedule and to keep him fit and healthy.

4. Coffee or Tea? How about a brew?

Daddy dearest might need to relax and take his mind off his workload. You can plan to take him for a stroll at a park nearby or have a drink with him! Share your daily happenings with him over a cup of coffee or tea. You can also bring him to a brewery to have a drink or two. Your dad will be elated to hear about the new guy or girl you met at the bar last week!

5. Bring him out for a spa or massage session

Who says only women deserves to be pampered? Treat your dad to a rejuvenating and relaxing spa or massage session. Allow him to take his mind off any vexing matters momentarily and recharge.

Every dad is different in their own way, and the way every dad brings their children up would differ as well. But it is undeniable that their love for their children will ever fall behind. Our Dad’s almighty love granted us enormous strength to conquer the world. This Fathers’ Day, EventNook would like to wish all the fathers out there a very Happy Father’s Day! If you are planning any form of event to celebrate this occasion, check us out at EventNook.com. You can also sign up for upcoming parenting events here , to experience parenthood to the fullest!
