Iceberg Travel... Go with the Floe.
Iceberg Events has a wide range of conference and administration services available which you can use in total or individually, depending on your needs. One of the fantastic services we can assist you with may be Internet or Online Registrations.
With our Internet Registration service, it is fully incorporated in our Conference and Event Management Database so it's all held in one place. We work closely with MIE Software to ensure the Internet Registration weblink is in good working order.
We've done Online Registrations for:
- Everyone! Conferences, events that require RSVPs (whereby you provide us a guest list), events that require no payments, events that require payment...
- Online registrations as part of the conference website, or online registrations only (for sporting events).
As the Conference Organiser, we can provide the following internet registration / online registration services:
- Organise a secure Online Registration weblink for your events to be set up and you will have full IT support.
- Develop an easy to use Online Registration Form for people to register and make payment in approx 10-15 minutes.
- 24 hour access to the Online Registrations - this means that your guests can register or RSVP during or after work hours.
- Staffed office from 8.30am till 5.30pm Monday to Friday. Our staff (and their lovely phone manners) will handle all enquiries. We'll have all the online registration in front of us or be able to get back to them as quickly as possible.
- We still accept manual registrations! Although online registrations are very popular, all potential delegates and guests should have as many registration options as possible to them, so we still accept and process manual registrations by fax and post. Where applicable, RSVPs by the phone are also accepted. We think that's important!
There are many benefits in letting us set up a secure internet registration webform:
- Huge time savings on data entry. One of our clients was able to automatically accept and process more than 1000 registrations in a single morning. (It was for a sporting event!).
- No transcription errors. The delegates register themselves.
- No more chasing incorrect credit card number and bouncing cheques. The delegate cannot register without their credit card being authorised and processed.
- No need to store credit card details in the event file. This allows for improved compliance with the new privacy laws.
- Savings in administration time. The money is transferred to your bank account each day so you don't have to prepare the deposit slips or go to the bank.
- Savings on postage. All correspondence is done online.
Please Note: Registration with Secure Payment by Credit Card is currently only available through MIE Software in Australia as we use an Australian e-commerce gateway.

There are many benefits in letting Iceberg Events set up a conference or event website for you:
- All the details of the event (registration details, program and speaker information, venue and accommodation details, sponsor information etc) is hosted on a stand alone website. It's a lot of information! And it really has its own "branding". You may not want the event details to detract from your own corporate or group website's branding or message.
- Huge time savings on data entry - we look after the content management for you.
- We will ensure all the photos of the speakers and sponsor logos are in the correct sizing and in a consistent format.
- We will ensure the program is up to date.
- We will ensure your registration details are up to date.
- We will ensure your 'Call for Abstracts' information is up to date.
- We will ensure that the venue and accommodation information is kept up to date.
- Any changes will be made in a timely manner.
- If you have your own domain name for your event, we can point it to the event website we set up for you. Or we can organise a personalised domain name for your event.
The options of having Iceberg Events look after your conference or event website:
- We can include the conference or event website in the event management fee. This will include the set up of the website and content management. There will be a standard template (placement of header banner and menu bar) but we will personalise it with your content. To view examples, please click on any event website at: www.icebergevents.com
- If you prefer a different template, we can organise a tailored website including your own domain name. You will have to pay more for a tailored website compared with an Iceberg Events template-designed website, but you will then be able to own that domain name and keep that website well after the event is over.
- If you have your own domain name for your event, but want a new website, you can still use Iceberg Events to look after the setup and management of your conference or event website. We can just organise for your domain name to redirect to your Iceberg Events template-designed website.
