As the Event Owner and Event User you have the ability to add event attendees into a Session as either a Registrant or an Attendee.


  • Registrant: A person who has added a session to their My Schedule and shows interest in attending.

    • A registrant is also someone who has purchased an add-on session when registering for the event.

  • Attendee: A person who has been scanned into a session or has been manually added as an "Attendee" to a session by an Event Organizer.

3. Click on the blue box on the far left that indicates the # of current registrants for this particular session.

4. Click on the "Add Registrants" button on top right-hand side of this session.

5. Now type in the first name of the individual that you would like to add, scroll down as needed to find their complete name. ย Check the box to the left of their name and then the green "ADD" button at the bottom of this section.
