A mechanism for attendees to indicate that they would like to attend an event. Registration forms are often used for in-person and hybrid events as well as for virtual events. When used for virtual and hybrid events, they may be platform-dependent, and they may include questions about virtual accommodations, photo/video consent, etc. It’s important to consider if an attendee’s registration will tie directly (or not) to their access to a digital platform and, if so, how. For example, will the attendee have to use the same email to register and to access the platform? Will the email used for registration serve as the user ID for the platform? Will attendees need to sign up for the platform separately?
