Good info from Gary. Yes, I agree that our current site wins with elegance/functionality.
Gary added some more sites to the list we should look at (with specifics about event registration). They’re in the mail he sent out.
I’ll only add that I seached for information about the eventbrite that Santa Clara uses and found out (don’t know how current it is but certainly the ballpark) that the fee for Eventbrite is 2.5% of the ticket price, with a minimum fee of $0.99 and a maximum fee of $9.95 http://www.crunchbase.com/company/eventbrite
Phoenix uses http://www.acteva.com Hard to find out what it costs … may vary on what you do. I read 7.6% of ticket price in one report.
Dallas CAS (http://ewh.ieee.org/soc/cas/dallas/) uses a free IEEE registration system. .
But what do we do with free events?
