I just read the Good Event Registration Guide. It’s a complete report of what’s going on in Event Registration Platforms right now and in the future.
It’s a great report and I suggest you read it, but there’s one huge problem: It only covers 5% of events.

We've always been promoting Lyyti as a tool for efficient and low-maintenance event management. We still maintain that Lyyti helps event organisers spend less time on their routine tasks, which in turn results in our client spending less money.
Lately, we've been receiving messages claiming the contrary: Working with Lyyti has actually resulted in increased costs. By alot, in some cases.
The party season is upon us! Companies everywhere are busy organising harvest festivals and Christmas parties. But a crematorium is not an appropriate venue to host a party, not even for Halloween!

"Our events are really small and infrequent, we can handle the registration manually."
"There's no point in getting an entire event management system just for this, it's just a small one-off event."
I get this from prospects all the time. Personally I think it's absurd to use the size of an event as an indicator for how much effort and investment it warrants. The goal or purpose of the event should be the main concern here.
