Event organizers choose Event Espresso for accepting event registrations for conferences, classes, workshops, seminars, and more. Use the Promotions and Discount Codes extension to create promotions for your attendees.

Here are examples of promotions that you can create for your events:

– A percentage based discount (e.g., save 15% with a discount code)
– A flat amount discount (e.g., save $10 with this discount code)
– A discount that is available for a limited amount of time

Promotions can also be restricted by a date range, limited by usage for an event, or limited to specific events.

And here are some ideas on how to use promotions with your events:

– Share a promotion code on social media to encourage early registrations for an upcoming event
– Allow partners like speakers and sponsors to register for your event at a reduced rate
– Share a promotion code with your email list
– Grant your staff the option to provide a limited amount of complimentary registrations
– Reward your most loyal attendees by inviting them to register for future events with a discount

Frequently asked questions about the Promotions and Discount Codes extension


Is a WordPress website required?
Event Espresso and the Promotions and Discounts extension are both plugins for WordPress so you’ll need a website running WordPress to use them. If you don’t currently have a website, then take a look at Event Smart where you can use event registration software with promotions and discount codes for your event registrations.

What kind of promotions can I create?
You can create a flat discount (e.g., save $10 with this discount code) or a percentage based discount (e.g., save 15% by using this promotion code) and assign them to your events. These promotions can then be restricted with conditions such as a limited number of uses and start/expiry dates.

Can I get a report to show the performance of the promotions?
Yes! When a promotion is used, then it will appear in the CSV registration report for an event. This report includes information collected from an attendee including payment confirmation information and promotion details, and the report can be created in a few clicks from your WordPress dashboard (WP-admin).
