  1. Are there themes more specifically designed for a professional group that meets once per month? These groups have one speaker and typically one session per meeting (not like a conference with multiple speakers & sessions over one or more days). It would have its primary events featured each month with registration, speaker & topic info and deeper promotion, but might also have a secondary calendar of other local events of interest, but wouldn’t promote/feature those as deeply. Sections for sponsor love, past meetings, about, contact us very useful, Sections for discussions, etc. a plus. Thanks.

    1. Paul,

      Thank you for your comment.

      You are looking for themes such as Januas and “Church and Events”. The second ones includes “church” in its name but don’t be confused by that as it is multipurpose WordPress theme and can be used for any kind of conferences and events. There are several similar themes on this theme collection that can be used for multiple events but these are my favorite ones that I can recommend to everyone. Especially I like “Church and Events” theme.

  2. Hi there! Great round-up, very informative and helpful. I’m looking to add an easy way to gather submissions for in-store events and speakers. Do you have any suggestions for tools that enable potential speakers to submit their ideas, links, images and abstracts in a templated format?? We’re using Divi 2.0 from Elegant Themes. Thanks!!

    1. Melinda,

      While you could use some advanced tools to create custom forms such as Gravity Forms but personally I would just provide potential speakers with author/editor rights for WordPress so they can add everything within a post or page.

    1. Wayne,

      I don’t think that you will find any such theme for WordPress or any platform in general. Clearinghouse operations is a very narrow field for any developer to get into it and develop themes and plugins for it.

      But I believe that that should be some platform of some sort for this kind of operations that you could make as part of your web appearance. Since I am not involved into finance I am not aware of any such platform but I would suggest to look around for one as your situation is not unique and there must be some established platform but it is definitely not WordPress based. But if you get the platform then mixing it with WordPress theme would be a piece of cake.

  3. I volunteer for a non profit and we are trying to re-do a site we have for our major fundraising event. Trying to find a theme that has a register and a donate option…wondering if you know of anything? Some of the themes you have here are beautiful, i’m just not seeing both of those options. Know of anything?

    Thanks!

    1. Leigh,

      Thank you for your question.

      1. These are WordPress themes and they use default WordPress functionality which means that you can allow users to register on your website. You can enable registration via WordPress dashboard >> Settings >> General >> “Anyone can register”.
      2. These are event/conference themes therefore they doesn’t have option to send donations. However, you can always use donations plugins such as this one. Or even use default PayPal donation option that you can use with any theme and without using any plugins.
      Another option is to choose non-profit theme with donations options built-in by default and here you can find some great examples of such a themes.

      Let me know if you have any other questions.

  4. Hi, Nice collection.
    1. Do you know any professional event plugin which visitors can submit their own event from front-end (for Event Listing website)?
    2. Is it possible to have a custom Recurring event to choose a date?

    Thank you

    1. Farhad,

      Instead of looking for event themes you might want to check directory style themes that you can find here. Some examples that supports events are this and this theme. On above mentioned collection you will find many great examples for directory themes that supports events.

      Let me know if you need any further assistance.
