As is well known, if you organize an event, there are many things to think about. There are the logistic, the schedule, the guests, the food to order… Whether it is a wedding, a training day, or a weekend with friends, why not gather all information regarding your event at the same place with a website? There are many advantages of creating a website for your event.

Why create a website for your event?

Why should you create a website for your event? We believe that it is something useful for your guests, but also for you. First, you can gather all information about your event. Do not forget to add a complete FAQ section. This way, you will not have to answer all the same questions repeatedly and focus on preparing your event. Therefore, you can also use a website to take reservations or sell tickets. 

Another point to bear in mind is the fact that a website can increase the visibility and credibility of your event. Indeed, your event can be found more easily by search engines. Your event will also look more professional with an official site than with only a Facebook page.

What should we find on the website of an event?

The first question you should ask yourself is, what would my guests need to know? Here are some suggestions of information we should be able to find on the website of your event.

  • Date and time
    This may seem obvious, but do not forget to show your event's date and time clearly. For example, add it to the homepage. If your event spreads over many hours or days, add a detailed schedule on your site.

  • Place
    Add the address of your event. You can also explain how to get there or where to park to help your guests.

  • Inscription
    If you plan a training course or a conference, it could probably be relevant to present your speakers. You can add a picture and a description of each of your speakers, so your guest can learn about them.

  • Speakers
    If you plan a training course or a conference, it could probably be relevant to present your speakers. You can simply add a picture and a description of each of your speakers, so your guest can learn about them.

  • Contact info and contact form
    People might need to contact you. They might have a question that was not answered on your website or want to become a sponsor. For these reasons, you should add your contact information to your site. You can also add a contact form if you do not want to publish your personal information. Please note that you can also use the contact form to take reservations and have some answers from your guests.

  • Social media
    If your event is already on social media, add badges to your accounts on your website. This way, your guests can easily follow your event and its updates on Facebook or Instagram, for example.

  • Photo gallery
    This is most useful after the event. You can share pictures of your event directly on your site by adding a photo gallery.

  • Partners
    If you are organizing an event and have many partners or sponsors, why not take the time to present and thank them directly on your website?

For example, let’s take a wedding. On your wedding website, you can add the date, the schedule, and how to get there. Why not take this opportunity to suggest some hotels nearby for those that live a bit far? You can also add a contact form where people can confirm their presence and choose what they would like to eat or mention if they have any allergies. In sum, add everything that could be useful; answer all questions for guests could have.
