Converting from Drupal to WordPress for Events Management

Posted on: by Stephen Ainsworth

Client Overview

The client, a prominent organisation, sought to migrate their events management system from Drupal to WordPress. They aimed to streamline event listing and management while aligning with their brand guidelines.

Client Challenge

The existing Drupal-based events site posed limitations and lacked alignment with the client’s brand guidelines. The client desired a WordPress solution that allowed easy event creation, intuitive management, and adherence to brand standards.


We proposed a comprehensive solution involving the creation of custom post types and advanced custom fields in WordPress. This approach enabled event managers to input data seamlessly without compromising the site’s integrity. The solution also incorporated design elements consistent with the client’s brand guidelines.
