Page access restricted to event attendees
You can control page access so that web pages you create are visible to Anybody, Selected Membership Levels, Groups, or just Admins.
Sometimes people want to create a web page that has materials or information that only pertains to be people who have attended an event (handouts, itineraries, promo codes, pictures). In these cases you would want to have the ability to say Choose "Event registrants" and then select the event(s) from a list.
At present this would only work for member who attended an event, but it might be possible to make it so that when a guest tries to access the page they are asked to enter their email, and that email is checked against the list of event attendees, but that solution would not be 100% secure.
it sounds like this is not yet a function. Does anyone know when or if it will ever be?
Yes - definitely need this! We have conferences attended by both members and non-members, who pay different prices.
Right now I have to work around it by emailing a specific URL to attendees. However, then tend not to read emails. Without this feature, I can't post a link on our conference site letting people know that the materials are available, since everyone would be able to click through and see them.

This is my exact request. We don't like printing out all the handouts for our conferences, but we don't want people who didn't register for the event to have access to them for free. Our next best option is to put the handouts on flash drives, but that necessitates the person having a device with a USB port at the event, which not everyone does. It would also be a great functionality for registrants to be able to access the handouts via smart phone.
Sorry, no. All our plans and current status can be seen here:
Page access restricted to event attendees is really important! Can this be added this week?!?!
In 4.3 release we are giving non-members a way to login and so initial request makes a perfect fit into this.

We would not go for non-secure solution for this so I think either this would only work for members initially - or login/self-service capabilities would have to be extended to non-member event attendees (which is a good idea long-term)
