Top 5 PHP event scripts for events websites in 2021

Event promotion and ticket selling websites are on the rise in 2021 with online tickets selling now taking bigger market sharing than traditional tickets sale. This is still a not so well exploited web market niche offering the opportunity to create local or country specific event sites and monetize them by charging the premium listings and advertisements or charge commissions on the tickets selling. 

We review below some top PHP scripts, which can help you to build your own event site or to add an event calendar or tickets selling functionality to your existing site.


1) Event Portal -


The unique feature about Event Portal is that it works like event mall where multiple companies can sign up, post their events and sell their tickets. The administrator / site owner can monetize the website by charging the companies for listing their events, make the listings featured, charge commissions on the tickets sales, charge for banners on the website or put ads from external systems like Google AdSense or similar.

Event Portal includes multiple features for creating seat maps for the events, sell tickets, generate tickets with barcode, download the tickets in .pdf files, see statistics about the sold tickets, accept registration for the events without tickets and many others. 

The script is provided also with the full not encrypted source codes, so any developer can modify them and also free technical support and free installation service.
