You want to build an incredible event website. One that looks great, has all of the information attendees need and drives registrations. But it can be hard to find inspiration. We’ve rounded up some examples of amazing event websites for inspiration. These templates are available for use if you’re building a website with Cvent, but they’re also a great source of inspiration.

Using a Template Saves Time

When you create your event website, don’t start from scratch. Why? There’s no need to! There are endless examples and templates to follow that will save you time and stress. And, there are many talented web designers who have already done what you need to do. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Regardless of the website builder you’re using, there’s most likely a gallery of templates to choose from. Start with a template and take it to the next level. Check out Cvent’s Visual Showcase for inspiration.

Images on Website

Images Make a Website Better

There’s a trend towards powerful images on websites. All text websites can look clunky and the information gets lost. Images and icons are a great way to break up your website. They create a flow and guide the eye. Most templates have places for images built in. Think about using a large background header image.

Headlines Stand Out with Sans Serif Font

There’s a big trend towards using sans serif fonts. They look clean and are easy to read. A sans serif font is a good choice to overlay on a background image. In general, limit the use of fonts to make it easier. It’s difficult to find many fonts that look good together. More isn’t always better.

Break Up the Web Page with Light Colors

With webpages that you scroll down to get through all of the information, consider using more than just one color for the background. Light grays and neutrals can break up the page and make information stand out more. And, it makes the webpage more engaging for visitors.

 

Make CTA and Buttons Pop with a Bright Color

Color can be challenging. You don’t want to use too many, or the design won’t look cohesive. But, when choosing button colors for your webpage, choose something that stands out. Your call-to-action (CTA) is what you want visitors to do. If that’s a CTA to register, then you’ll have a register now button. This button should draw attention. These templates use a button that stands out so visitors will be encouraged to click it. For more information, read How to Choose Event Website Color.

Save Time, Find Inspiration

There is no need to spend endless hours on a task when time is of the essence. Especially, when what you need already exists. When building your event website, look to examples for inspiration. Better yet, start with a template and build from there. It will save time and energy and will help you get your website live in no time.
