Activate group registration on your event

Eventbrite LogoUpdated by Cortney N

Group registration lets attendees join groups for your event. Group registration isn't required for attendees to buy groups of tickets. Instead, this feature is best for team events. Go to “Order form” and select “Activate group registration” to get started.

NOTE: The ability to activate group registration will no longer be available as of July 2022. Instead, you can eblink{create a custom question=>} that asks attendees to specify their group.
