Wix is a simple and easy-to-use website builder that provides slick, contemporary designs for any type of site. It’s soared in popularity over the past few years, and now boasts an impressive 154 million users, making it a robust alternative to other popular CMS’s like Wordpress. We love Wix for it’s high-spec templates and the sharp, glossy appeal of its designs, as well as its exceptional user-friendliness.
If you’re thinking of using Wix for your events website, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to appropriate themes. The CMS has tons of templates that cater to everything from family fun fares to conferences, yoga retreats and music festivals.
All of its templates are mobile responsive and can be integrated with Ticket Tailor so you can easily sell tickets from your site, while also providing users with enticing information and promotional content.
We also love the drag and drop ability of Wix templates, which makes it super-easy to customise your page layouts.
While there are so many to choose from, here are what we think are the best Wix event templates right now:
The perfect template for either a single yoga practitioner or a larger yoga organisation.
This clean-cut theme is all airy-whites and sharp lines, with a crisp, contemporary typeface that feels as zen as the yoga events it promotes. Page layouts within the theme include a gorgeous gallery template, great for showing off high-spec photography of all things yoga. The homepage is modern and impactful, with space to show off a large image front and foremost, and an easy-to-navigate area for upcoming events below.
The perfect template for festival organisers and media companies.
With a bold video-display homepage and gorgeous parallax scrolling, this has to be one of our all-time favourite Wix themes. Expect slightly retro-feeling typeface, eye-catching line drawings and tons of space for impressive photography across this template. Map integration allows you to easily let users know where you’re located, and a single homepage gives the whole theme a really contemporary feel. Users simply click across the top navigation to be relocated lower down the page to the section they’re looking for.
The perfect template for corporate conferences and business events.
This theme is slick, professional and impressive at every level. While it’s ideal for corporate conferences, we think its contemporary aesthetic and inventive page layout make it a versatile option that could work just as well for less corporate events too. The theme consists of a single landing page that can be navigated from links at the top. One aspect we really like is the space it provides to display key numbers and stats about your event in an eye-catching way. Plus, it has a dedicated space to spotlight speakers at your event, and to show off sponsor logos too.
Digital Conference Landing Page
The perfect template for creative conferences and digital industry events.
With a bold, design-led aesthetic, this theme is slightly reminiscent of D&AD’s website (the Global Association for Creative Advertising and Design Awards), which instantly evokes notions of creativity and innovation. The theme makes it easy to display things like individual event workshops, as well as sponsor logos and your full event schedule. Parallax scrolling adds to its impressive vibe, while edgy typeface makes it an instant winner for forward-thinking industries
Perhaps more relevant than ever, this theme caters to virtual events, offering a single page that’s pared-back but impactful. It’s a great option for those who run one-off online events that perhaps don’t need anything other than one great-looking page to display key information and provide a place for people to RSVP. We love the sharp contemporary feel of this page, but also it’s simplicity, which is particularly appealing for those who want to get a web page up in minimum time for more transient events. There’s nothing to say you couldn’t use it for a standalone offline event, too.
Wix’s templates are all about bringing that ultra-modern feel to sites, usually featuring parallax scrolling, refreshingly imaginative page layouts and plenty of space for bold photography and videos. If you want to set up an events site that’s visually impactful, easy to navigate and really simple to set up, we reckon it’s a no-brainer.
Of course, it never hurts to shop around, so if you’re still not settled on using Wix, check out our favourite Wordpress templates for events too.
