To successfully create an event website there are many considerations to take. Perhaps the most important one refers to the payment method your client wants to use for the events. This is paramount to the choice not just with the theme but most importantly with the plugin you might want to use for people to acquire their tickets.. This will also determine the flexibility and layout of parts of the site.
Again, we went with a responsive theme, given that more and more people uses their tablets and phones to search the web. To take into consideration which demographics would the site be reaching was a determining factor as well. We wanted to make sure whoever wanted to buy tickets could do it in a fairly simple way and easy to read typography allowed customers to stay longer in the site.
There are great events coming up, so make sure you check up the site, specially if you live in West Vancouver : http://www.caulfeildcovehall.ca/
