Integrate with Eventbrite
Integrate with Eventbrite > Although WA offers a basic event registration function, it's not the "norm" for many people and if an association needs additional functionality this would be a choice. We prefer Eventbrite for 3 main reasons:
1> Business people usually have an account, so their info is pre-filled and registration is quick & easy.
2> The Eventbrite mobile app is sophisticated and easy to use on the day of the event for the organizer & attendees.
3> We find that the local Eventbrite page, which features "popular events in your area," functions as an additional promotional opportunity that drives increased registrations -- so we hate to lose that functionality.

In 2015, you said you intend to "evolve" your event management system. Please evolve faster. There are so many things that are clunky about it.

Please add exhibitor and speaker management component to the event management system of WA.
Hi, we have a partner who's using Wild Apricot, and we push our events from Eventbrite to different Social Media, so that the registration is recorded on the Eventbrite side. We need the registration to happen on our Eventbrite event for the event that we lead in partnership with them.
Is there a mechanism to push Eventbrite events on WA, so that the people who register through their WA, actually register on our EB events. It's important for us as we have a limit on the number of participants, and also communicate with the people who registered before and after the event.
Adding Eventbrite integration would really simplify my life.

Integration with Eventbrite is not a priority for us. Instead, we will be evolving our own event management system.

What is the progress on this, and the bulk import of event registrants? Eventbrite has similar status to WordPress: WA can do most of what's needed, but it is so popular that having a pre-built API integration neutralises the discussion.
In my current client's case, Eventbrite can solve some multi-currency issues.
