Online registration

A few times lately, an event organiser has told us that they have an online registration system.
Turns out they just have an online form.

They are getting only the tip of the iceberg.
Make sure you get it all! :)

Here's what we mean by that...

We often get asked.. "Is this mail spam?".. "How do I know if it's a phishing attempt?"


Here's what to look for:



Also, look out for letter substitution or swapping... for example, an email from "First Nat1onal Bank" ...  or ... "MiƧrosoft".   Or Goolge.



We've been busy making magic!newimp

They say that a software system is never finished.

And we agree.

Every month, we add something, improve something, or develop a whole new system.

We've been working on:

  • our e-poster system for academic conferences
  • extended functionality for the creation of name-badges
  • a new RSVP system for inviting attendees to your event
  • even more features on our abstract submission system
  • an upgrade to our delegate registration admin panel

Have a look at what we've been up to lately.


Abstract Review



Blind Review is standard practice for abstracts submitted for consideration to academic conferences.

This means no human being interferes with the process of allocating abstracts to reviewers, and no reviewer sees the identify of the author when he scores the paper.

It's completely impartial.

But in reality... it doesn't always work like that.

  • Abstract topics can be so specialised that someone needs to oversee who is selected as a reviewer.
  • And sometimes there's a Bossy Professor who is a bit of a control freak and wants to oversee everything.
  • Or the conference has previously used a system that wasn't "blind", and is not used to the protocol.


And this is why we've just launched a new flavour of EXBO/Abstracts. blind


We call it "Seeing Review" (our little joke).

It allows a Review Administrator to allocate abstracts to a specific reviewer - the one they feel is best suited. But still without seeing the author's identity.


Here's a little diagram showing Blind vs Seeing mode...

We're feeling rather pleased with ourselves this morning.

This weekend, one of our clients was busy at a 2-day Expo she'd arranged. It was a great success.

But here's the interesting part...
While she was there, and away from her desk/emails, she opened stand-bookings for her flagship event, later this year.


Thanks to our systems, over the weekend, 28 exhibition stands were booked.

Of these, 27 have already submitted all the other information needed (such as their logo, how many electric outlets they need, their billing address) and have booked their offloading time-slot, and their media advert, if they wanted one.


 All this while the event organiser was offline.

Think about that.
