SHOW ME (2:57)

If you have events with limited space, you can choose to cap your event to a specific number of registrants (including guests). You can limit the number of registrants for the entire even and for individual registration types. When the registration limit is reached, registration will be automatically disabled for the event or the registration type, and the event organizer will receive an email notification.

Once you set a registration limit for an event or registration type, you can enable an event waitlist.

You can also limit the number of guests that a registrant can bring.

Setting a registration limit for the event

You can limit registration for the entire event on the event details page when you add or modify an event. To do so, click the Registration type & settings tab, then enter the limit in the Event registration limit field.

If you leave this field blank, there can be an unlimited number of registrations.

Once you enter a registration limit, you can choose to enable a waitlist once the registration limit is reached.
