Add guest option to event registrations

Now you can enable guest registrations for your events on Heylo. With guests enabled, your members can register for your event and sign up others as well. It empowers your members to bring their friends, colleagues, and family members without friction. Guests can supercharge your group, increasing inclusivity and transparency at your events and growing group membership.

When it comes to hosting events, what sets Heylo apart is the social experience fundamental to community building.

With guests enabled, Heylo will prompt members to register guests and input their guest’s names. By using names, not numbers, guests become visible to others and further fosters a sense of belonging. The visibility helps everyone get comfortable and break the ice before the event.

Incorporating guests into the Heylo ecosystem goes beyond mere registration. Guests are seamlessly integrated into all event functionalities, including registration counts, participant limits and waitlists. A host can limit guests by registration type as well, allowing certain registrations to bring guests but others to remain restricted. For paid events, event hosts can specify a different price for paid guests.

As always on Heylo, event hosts and group admins have ultimate control. Hosts can limit the number of guests or eliminate the guest option all together. Heylo’s flexibility with event tools empower hosts to bring people together in accordance with their vision and culture.

Groups are leveraging the guest feature to broaden their events:

  • A family-oriented hiking group counts on guest registrations to include everyone in their adventures, ensuring even the youngest members without Heylo accounts are accounted for.
  • A running club extends the camaraderie of their runs by inviting non-members to join their celebratory after-parties through guest invites.
  • A neighborhood association utilizes the +1 option to broaden their community engagement for special events, making them more accessible and inclusive for partners

Activating guests for your next event is just 4 straightforward steps:

  1. Create a new event in your Heylo group
  2. Head over to registrations and toggle on guests
  3. Set a max number of guests, and add an optional price
  4. Save and publish your event!

Guests are another step toward helping leaders build impactful communities and help their members belong.
