Event management platform for Joomla!Days - input needed

Post by akede » Wed Mar 24, 2010 8:35 am

Hi all,

I recently spoke to a company called amiando (http://www.amiando.com) which happens to be located in the same town I live in. They provide an online event management tool starting from an event website and including the whole registration and other related services for the event. I got a contact to someone within their company and they would offer a special rate for all Joomladays all over the world.

From first talks with some of you I realized that there are some constraints related payments and invoices involved. This is why my first plan is to write something like a request for proposal that we can sent to amiando and other service providers. May be we can identify a good partner that is helpful for all Joomla!Day events.

In order to get this paper working I need some input from you. Especially:
* How much is your ticket price (if you have different rates - just list them all)


* How many participants had your last event or you expecting for your next event?


* Do you know of any financial or legal restrictions related the invoicing for your event?


* Is there anything special we need to take into account related such a service?



It would be great if you could give me feedback until 15th of April so that I can prepare a RFP and we get this rolling.

Many thank's

Alex

Hi Alex,

This my return from the organization of the french JoomlaDay 2010 in Bordeaux.

Ticket price was 29€ for all and 9€ for students and AFUJ members

370 participants for this edition, we expect about the same for the next year. In fact it depends of the place we'll find for organise it.
akede wrote: * Do you know of any financial or legal restrictions related the invoicing for your event?
AFUJ is a french association so we don't have the TVA and all invoicing have to mention it.

When the visitors take their inscription to the joomladay they must have the possibility of ordering their lunch at the same time, it is thus important for us to combine both orders rather than to make them do two different forms
akede wrote: * Is there anything special we need to take into account related such a service?
Our site is on Joomla so of course it has to be compliant with. Another thing, these year we work with weezevent and we need to integrate the service in an iframe. It's not a good way because the page is not on https mode and we had many bad returns on this point. The service must be able to be to integrate cleanly while respecting safety standards of payments on internet.

hope it helps community, It is a hard and difficult work to organize an event as a Joomla!Day then if we can mutualize some procedures or tools, it will already be a big step for all.
Thanks to you to begin with this system of reservation.

Hi Alex, hello everybody

Sorry for being late in answering this. Was nice to meet you and Robert at the #jab10, was such a great inspirational event to us and to our project.


quick info for the people that doesn't know about me and the project our company is working on:

Beyounic is a swiss start-up working on a social event management platform called ohanah. We are using Joomla! and gpl technology solutions like Nooku framework (from Joomla! co-founder Johan Janssens) and Anahita framework to achieve our goal, in order of being able to provide services like the ones you seems looking for. What differs our vision and service from all mainstream and major event manager systems, is the focus on the networking of people before, during and after the event, together with real time integration of medias like twitter, flickr photostreams and so on. This mean we are more community oriented and Joomla!Days just fit this scenario perfectly.


We have launched the alpha 1 of our project (was just a merely B.R.E.A.D. level prof of concept) during the J and Beyond where we tried to simulate the use of the platform in a real environment (http://www.ohanah.com/events/event/738 - soon online a blog post about this usecase).

Event organizers in general and Joomla!Day organizers in particular gave us a gr8 feedback and interesting insights leading us toward an integrating vision rather then reinventing the wheel.
In this direction we started implementing wufoo.com apis in order to build a robust, flexible and extremely powerful event registration system that will allow our user to have complete control of the data they collect. This could for example solve @agerix issue of having people to register to the event and at the same time order their lunch all into one single registration process.

We are building a SaaS and we would like to give back to the community as much as we can.
We are open to give full access to our platform and tools for free to any Joomla!Day. But more important to us, is to listen to your real needs in order to be able to solve your real problems with simple yet powerfull tools and solutions.


You can find the project page here: http://www.ohanah.com
and request an invitation to access the platform here: http://www.ohanah.com/invitation (mention there that you are Joomla!Day organizer so we can let you in quick)


Hope to hear soon from all of you.

Cheers, Nick
