Group Registration Feature

Group registration in ANR Events Management System is a helpful tool when registering multiple individuals from the same family or organization. Group registration allows you to collect information for a primary contact, such as a parent of multiple youth or administrative assistant, while also collecting registration information for other participants, such as multiple children or members of an organization. This tool allows you to anonymously collect demographic information for each participant before moving to the next participant’s registration.

Group registration must be requested before it can be integrated in your event registration. If you are interested in utilizing or learning more about group registration, please contact ANR Event Services.
