Choosing a registration platform is a vey delicate decision. There are a lot of considerations to be made that can make or break your event.
Many platforms also offer discounts and free options for not for profit events.
If you are looking for a WordPress solution, you can look into http://showthemes.com that offers integration with WooCommerce or Gravity Forms.
When it gets to event registration there is no one size fits all solution. It depends on your event type, numbers, ticket price.
Get in touch if you have any questions.
It really depends on the type of venue you are going for. There are a number of online Request for Proposal (RFP) platforms that allow you to send your event to a number of venues in a specific area and get quotes. I would ask them directly and compare quotes.
Some general considerations: Orlando is not Columbus. It is a very sought after destination and it has a much more structured hospitality industry. That can mean higher prices (or incredible bargains if you are smart with your calendar).
Also consider where attendees are travelling from and what is most convenient.
Get in touch if you have any question.
Starting out with a brand new event is never easy. Congrats on your new venture.

Wonderful and accurate advice. Thank you.
My call with Julius was worth every penny! I have been researching an overwhelming number of software, products and business solutions and needed help...I needed an expert and quickly. Julius offered a precise summary of our current situation and referrals on the tools/platforms that he thought would be most helpful to my business. I am so happy that I had the opportunity to speak with him and excited to explore his suggestions.
Julius knows the in-and-outs of the event industry. He gave us valuable feedback on which niche to target to get more users.
Julius was very helpful. Besides having a great overview about the event industry on macro level, he also knows the business from the market players' point of view.
He has shared some very valuable thoughts during our discussion. I would recommend Julius to anyone who needs information or advice regarding the event industry.
Julius has deep knowledge of the events industry: clearly and efficiently communicating what he knows, and in a way that directly answered my questions. I recommend speaking to him if you have questions about event apps or the industry in general. I also found that his free publication "The Event Apps Bible" is a very useful reference.
Julius was extremely knowledgeable about the events industry and provided profound insights that you can only have if you have spent decades in the events industry learning, morphing and developing as a professional. Julius is intelligent, entrepreneurial and down to business. Most definitely worth the call and he even went above and beyond just offering advice, he offered intros and contacts, which almost no one does and that puts Julius on a much higher level than most consultants out there.
