Your event website works as the online representative for your event. Not only is it the official point of contact for you and your attendees, it is also a reflection of what your event is all about and the ideologies guiding it.
In the most basic sense, event websites work as a deal-maker or a total deal-breaker. Think of it this way. A person from your target audience heard about your event and seems interested. S(he) looks for the details online and comes across your website. Once they are here, they expect two things which, if fulfilled will make them your registered attendees:
1. They want the answers to all their questions regarding your event. The time, venue, date, speakers, event registration process, and anything and everything else.
2. They want to understand the quality and standard of your event and see if they match up to their expectations.
Thus, you need to work well on a design that will be sure to convert your website visitors into registered attendees.
