Limit for Guest Registrations

With events you can now set up Registration types that can allow multiple of "guest" registrations. At the present time the only limit put on the number of guests is as part of limiting total registrations for events.

However, some clients have mentioned that they would like to limit the number of guests who can come to an event. I can think of two ways to do this:
* Limit total number of guests for the event - If you don't want more than 50 guests, then you set this limit at the same time that you set the registration limit for the event.
* Limit total number of guests for a registration type - 50 total guests can be submitted by people who register using Registration type "Gold"

* Limit total number of guests that any registrant that can submit along with their registration - Each registrant cannot bring more than 2 guests.Thoughts?

        We''d love to see this -- we have lots of events where members can only bring 1 guest and it would be very useful.

        Is this still not possible? We have events where we let members bring one guest, but there's no way for us to limit that.

        For our sponsorship registration each level is allowed additional registrations, however, currently there is not a function within the registration form that allows for us to restrict the number of people they are actually registering. We would love to see a way to set-up a registration that we could allow them to register a certain amount of people.

        We have an annual conference each year in which vendors are allowed to have display booths. Booth space cost varies by size and location. Each booth is allowed to have a number of guests included in the price. We need to be able to limit the number of booth spaces sold as well as the number of guests to be included with the booth.

        In addition, we have an awards dinner each year where a table can be funded by an individual. We need to be able to limit the number of tables sold as well as the number of guests to be included with the table.

        We need to be able to have an overall limit to an event and then each registration deduct from that. The problem we are currently facing is we want to be able to sell tables of 10 for example for a set price and also individual tickets. When we currently sell a table it only takes one from the allocation not 10. With a limit on guests, we could give each person who purchased a table 9 free guests they could bring. These would all be accounted for by the system.

        My organization often needs this functionality. We need to be able to allow members to add up to N guests for a given event.

        We need our members to be able to register free guests and paid guest for meetings. We would also like for members to be offered the registration options of free vs paid guests depending on what they have already used for the year. Example – Our “regular members” get one free guest per year and our “3 person corporate membership” gets 3 free guests per year, “4 person corporate membership” gets 4 free guests per year, etc. If they have used up their free guest passes for the year, they are not offered the free guest option when registering.

        I just ran into this problem. My group is having a very large event and they want to limit registrations to "Members" +1 guest at the discounted price and every guest after that at the full price. But, it doesn't seem like there is any way to do this.

        At least if I could limit the number of guests per person that would save me from the problem we are currently having, people registering 10 guests at the discounted price. Now I have to go and invoice evreyone for the multiple guests that are signing up.

        We have added limit number of registrants per registration type in 5.1, but not limited guest registrations yet.

        Is there a way to limit the number of guests a member can sign up for an event. For example, we would like to allow our "corporate" members to sign up to five employees to events at the membership rate, but after that they would need to pay the non-membership rate. We would like to allow our "individual" members to register up to one guests at the membership rate.

        It would be really nice if we could limit the number of guests a "participant" could register for an event.

        We have an event where we are encouraging groups to come together to. We are charging $500 for a team of up to 4. (so if they register 1, 2, 3 or 4 people, you pay $500).

        We then charge $100 for each person past their 4th group/team member. As things current stand, they can register an unlimited number of guests under the $500 price (so they can register 8 people for $500). I can make changes on the back side but it would be nice to have it automatic

        We too could use a feature to limit guest registrations as well as to apply a different price for for various types of guests. We have similar programs with tables of 10 which provide a discount over registering 10 individuals, free attendees for sponsors, and a golf event which has foursomes. Hopefully this will be available in a future upgrade. Thanks,

        This is something I could really use as well - better yet, the option to specify the number of registrations for the different registration types (eg members vs non-members), rather than just an uppper limit for the entire lot.


      • Holly BullmanHolly Bullman commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        this is something we need as well - one guest (or a given number of guests) free and then additional guests at an additional cost.

        This function would help us better serve our sponsors - those who provide significant funding for the organization (and our ability to have this service!) - where we could offer a certain number of complimentary registrations with their sponsorship. At some point, we have to stop that, but currently there's no ability to do this.

        Kerri, also, in your scenario - please tell us a bit more:

        - people should never be allowed to register more than 1 guest OR you want to offer 1 guest for free and additional guests for an extra charge?
