Anna, Marketo Professional Services also offers an "Event Cap" solution. It will redirect to an 'event full' or an 'wait list' page when the capacity has been reached. If interested, you can reach us at services at marketo dot com.

Hey Jep - so if the solution exists, why doesn’t Marketo include it into the core product?

Exactly... and P.S. does it work for embedded forms, one wonders.

Re: Am I able to cap registrations

I registered for an event recently that didn't automatically approve everyone. You filled out a form and got a confirmation that you'd requested registration, and that they'd let you know in 2 days if your registration was accepted. Then I got an email saying I was accepted, giving me more details and inviting me to actually register. So that's one way to do it. It will also allow you to review registrants and exclude junk submissions or other undesirable people.

Was that event the Marketo Summit?

And I dunno, even doing manual/offline approval still requires that you maintain a counter, it just adds additional criteria. (The 50th approved registrant still needs to cap regs.)

No it was a GDPR seminar. I'm not sure what their reasoning was for not accepting everyone. Then again, when we do roadshows, we always get a handful of students and other people who we would rather exclude!

Are you saying you registered for the Summit and your registration wasn‘t confirmed immediately?  Or even worse, you were denied?!

There was a form up -- maybe since replaced -- that was like, "We'll get back to you."

We use an event approval workflow for some of our highly targeted events. See the details in this thread: Re: Event Registration Cap

Re: Am I able to cap registrations

This old thread on the community provides multiple solutions for 'cap registrations'. We have done it several times. Marketo web hooks allow you to do it very easily.
