Conference, as it’s name suggests, was created from the start to be the easiest, quickest and most robust conference WordPress theme available.
We studied and reviewed hundreds of conference sites across the web before planning the features of the theme and plugins to ensure we covered all functions and abilities. We found current solutions to either be overly complicated, not enough complexity, poor design, constricting or just plain hard to use.
We designed our conference theme and free plugins to be simple to use, intuitive and powerful, and most importantly results orientated. We then took this powerful functionality and wrapped it in a gorgeous, customizable wrapper that looks and works amazing on all screen sizes.
Conference WordPress theme will help you get your site up and running in minutes, provide an excellent user and admin experience, and help convert visitors in to attendees!
Demo -
Speakers are what a lot of people attend conferences for. As a conference organizer, one of your main objectives is to create a killer line-up of speakers. Our Conference theme provides you with an easy but powerful tool to showcase these speakers and help to shine the spotlight on them effortlessly via our free plugin.
Add an unlimited number of speakers
Add photo, title, company, position, social links, company website link and bio for each speaker
Automatic speaker index page creation - create a page, choose the template and click publish
Single speaker page displays full information and all of their sessions automatically
Easily add speakers to sessions in your conference
Speakers automatically appear on session pages and full schedule listings
Speaker widget available for drag and drop placement with options for displaying information
Sessions make up your full conference schedule and it’s what attendees need to see and understand. We spent a long time planning and researching the best way for admins and visitors to see this important information. We created a free dedicated plugin to achieve this.
Add an unlimited number of sessions spanning unlimited days
Sessions can be categorized for easier management and display on the front end - group and display your sessions by category for attendees
Add session name, date, start and end time, location, choose speakers and categorize
Automatic sessions index page (full schedule) creation - create a page, choose the template and click publish
Full schedule page lists each day of sessions individually, displays title, time, date, location, full speaker list, excerpt, and read more
Single session pages display all information and each speaker can be clicked to view their profile and other sessions they may be speaking at
Highlight particular session for any reason - such as ‘Lunch’ or ‘Keynote’ to bring further attention when scanning the full schedule
Session widget available for drag and drop placement with options for displaying information
Sponsors are a primary way of attempting to cover the cost of running a conference without selling a single ticket. We allow you to showcase them prominently, wherever you wish in your theme via our free dedicated plugin that the theme is fully styled for.
Create unlimited sponsor levels - for example platinum, gold, silver etc.
Create full profiles for each sponsor including Company name, logo, website + url plus bio
Assign sponsors to levels easily
List your sponsors anywhere via either a shortcode or drag and drop widget with options for displaying via sponsorship level and if you wish to display logo, name, link and bio plus sorting order
When we first started to plan out the conference theme we looked at various plugins, add-ons, services etc that were available. Many conference themes out there will force you in to using a specific service. There’s no need for this at all. We leave the freedom of purchasing tickets to you, the organizer, to decide. All ticketing services allow embeds in WordPress pages, we even show you an example of Eventbrite (one of the largest services) in the theme demo registration page. All other services offer the same. Make the choice that is best for you and your conference.
