We recommend all events have a registration system to allow effective event management. The benefits of setting up registration for your event include;
Events organised by IET communities can use one of two registration systems;
This online registration system is a free resource that has been designed to help volunteers manage events professionally from start to finish.
The system enables volunteers to monitor and manage event attendance, to produce delegate sign in sheets and delegate badges easily, and request feedback from delegates after the event. It is also an easy way to start collecting metrics information about event attendees.
The Community Operations team can set you up on Plus! for Events so you can manage your delegate registration directly.
This online registration system is free to use and is ideal for events which require a payment to be taken.
The Community Operations team can set up registration for you and will manage delegate registration on your behalf.

Please contact the Community Operations team to discuss the best registration system for your event.
A delegate registration pack, which consists of printed delegate badges, blank/additional badge inserts and delegate list, can be provided. This service is available for large events or where networking forms a substantial part of the programme and will be subject to the availability of staff resource. Please provide as much notice as possible to the Community Operations team.
The IET’s online event calendar allows people to find events within a particular technical specialty or geographic area and register their place (where registration is available).
By creating an online event calendar page your event will be exposed to a wide and varied audience, increasing the potential number of delegates.
The Community Operations team can support you by creating an event calendar page based on the information you provide. We recommend that you include as much relevant information as possible, for example the benefits of attending, details on the programme, speaker biographies and presentation synopsis and a registration link.
If you require a member of the IET staff team to set up an event calendar page and/or registration on your behalf please send a completed event calendar page and registration request form to the Community Operations team.
