Have you ever been tasked with launching a new website for your event? Or having to set up a "quick website" for your event? Worry not because you now have a good variety of "off-the-shelf" options that will get you up and running in no time.
We believe that wordpress has revolutionised the way non-techy people use blogs and websites. So that is why we particularly like and recommend (in most cases) to use wordpress as a CMS.
On to the specifics, here is a list of the best and most popular event website templates for wordpress available in the market right now:

There you have it. I can guarantee that setting an event website is extremely simple and with a little bit of customisation, to change the colours or specific elements you will be up and running very quickly.
You need to bear in mind that when using a template you need to adapt to the template features instead of adapting the template to your specific needs. If your business requires a lot of bespoke functionality you should consider building a bespoke website.
