Here's a summary of the differences between event types:
General Registration Event
Registration events are typically fundraising events where a person registers a place for the event and then creates a fundraising page. You specify the entry types, e.g. Adult Registration, Child Registration, Company Registration etc. and a registration form is completed for each entry type.
Perfect for: Fundraising events, Challenge Events.
You can add an optional team component to your forms as well if you want to allow your participants to create a team fundraising page:
With General Registration Events, you have the option to register multiple people during your registration, however, the main registrant will need to enter all their participant information and pay for their entries.
In-Person Sporting Event

Virtual or Hybrid Event
Virtual or hybrid events allow you to make the most of our Strava integration.
Participants will have the ability to connect their Strava accounts and log their activities. They can also see their progress with activity targets and leaderboards.
Virtual or Hybrid events differ from other event types because:
Activity can be tracked on a leaderboard.
Participants can manually upload activities and/or integrate with Strava.
Charity uses can choose which activities are allowed through Strava.
You can pre-set target distances for your fundraisers or allow them to choose their own activity target.
Sub-events cannot be created with a virtual event type.
This event type does not have to be used solely for virtual events.

When registering for a ticketed event you have the ability to register multiple people by only entering one person's details. This is a really useful event type for family registrations.
You can still make the most of our team functionality to register multiple people under one team.
This event type allows you to buy a group entry to an event that people can claim places for. This is used for a number of larger corporate events like a charity gala dinner for example.
The Corporate Event Type has the 'Register' button, but the option to either buy a whole team or claim a team place with the password the lead booker was emailed:
Lead booker buys team, selects members and receives a password via email.
Teammates use password to access the registration form and claim their team place.
If the individual who claims the team places and purchased the team also wants to be a member of the team they will need to register using the password as well.
Individual entries can also be added that are not linked to the ‘claim a team place’.
When a team is purchased, and the team places are reserved this will appear in the reports as ‘reserved registration’ until the team members register and their details will be added.
The password can also be found under Manage > teams.
