Thank you for everyone’s feedback. We are not planning on adding support for event registration at this time but we will keep it in mind in the future when we look at improving the overall event story on SharePoint.Alexandre Patenaude commented
The current incarnation of the "Events" webpart works well to publicize open events (i.e. open-to-all web conferences). But as soon as the event is capacity-limited (i.e. a meeting at a physical location), and registration must be in place, we also have to rely on another service. The event on the external service can still be aded to the SP event as a link; still, not really convenient, as we do have to rely on two services instead of having a one-stop-shop in SP.
Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we’re building your suggestion now. We plan to increase availability to this feature as we continue improving the tech, and ensuring a smooth experience across Office 365 following the URL changes in SharePoint Online.
