10 Best Event Email Template Variations

Once you’ve used the above template, feel free to customize using the different event promotion ideas, headers, and Call to Action buttons below. 

1. Announcement / Save the Date

It’s never too early to get your conference or event on people’s radar. Make sure your target audience knows when and where your event will take place with an “Announcement”  email template, and send it at least a few months in advance so that any travel preparations or accomodations can be arranged. Keep it simple and streamlined.

If you’re still not ready for attendees to register, use the Call to Action button as an “opt-in” to create a priority email list for attendees who want to register.

2. Early Bird Pricing

An “Early Bird” event email template is a great way to jumpstart your event attendance with a boost. By offering a small discount, you’ll encourage attendees who may have been on the fence but are won over by snagging a deal. Make sure to use urgency and a value proposition to drive registration.

3. Speaker Spotlight

You’ve got an all-star lineup of speakers and panelists, so why not flaunt it with the “Speaker Spotlight” email template? Try to do as little explaining as possible and rely on the names if you can, though a short sentence blurb about who they are or the topic they’ll be covering is acceptable.

Alternatively, if you have a long list of speakers, use your Call to Action button to direct potential attendees to a landing page with a registration link.

4. FOMO (Fear of Missing Out)

The FOMO (fear of missing out) template may be one of the strongest in the entire batch. In today’s cultural climate, being at the best events and having amazing experiences are a social currency worth much more than the cost of the ticket to your amazing event. 

Leverage this with a countdown clock with a minor price cut and your attendees will be sprinting for their registration before you know it!

5. Exclusive Event

One tactic to sell out your event is with an event email template that exudes exclusivity. Do this by requiring attendees to “apply” to your event and see if they’re accepted. This psychological trick will be sure to unleash the floodgates on your event registration process.

6. Accommodations

Just because you’ve sold out your event doesn’t mean that communication stops. Keep your attendees informed of their options for accommodations if they’re traveling with the “Accommodations” event email template. You’ll ingratiate yourself with attendees by sending them recommendations or even a group rate for a hotel if you’re hosting the conference at that particular hotel.

Think it’s too early to survey your registrants? Think again! With the pre-event survey template you can glean invaluable information such as where your attendees are staying, if they’ll be coming in early to enjoy the city before your conference, or even just to know why they’re attending and what they’re most excited about!

This information can then be used for targeted sponsorship, forging strategic partnerships with nearby hotels, or to gain insights on your own event. One way to drive home participation is to offer an entry into a drawing for their responses.
