I have a draft webform set up to allow an organisation to register for an event (for an exhibition stand booking). Is there any reason NOT to do this?
Civi 5.11, Drupal 7.
There is no reason why an Organisation contact can't register for Event. ATM its not supported through CiviCRM online registration form however you can use Drupal Webform to register Organisation for event.
Here’s a reason:
There will be a person/(Individual) that will show up at the Event to staff a booth, to join an opening reception. The invoice will typically also go to an Individual Attn of: working for a company.
So best way to handle this is to add two Contacts to your webform: one of Contact Type Individual and one of Contact Type Organization. You can connected the two with Current Employer field for the Individual.
Then you can have the information you need to print a Name Tag, send a Thank you letter etc.
