Eventshaper

A web application for conference and event organizers. It started in 2013 as a simple registration form, and it became a working product by 2017 that solved all organizers’ problems. Eventshaper worked out the problem of creating an event website, collecting participants’ registration, accepting payments, communicating with participants, efficiently checking attendance, creating participants' business cards and providing many other tools necessary for hosts.

The website generator allowed quick creation of separate place on the Internet and start promoting the event right away. A simple editor enabled to customize the page section (list of speakers, partners, sponsors, agenda and other details) to suit one's needs. The idea was a nod to those who have little in common with HTML and broadly understood computer science. With Eventshaper, everyone in a few steps was able to manage their own website, as well as create personalized identifiers, electronic tickets, and participation certificates. Another functionality was the built-in mailing module, from where one could send invitations and current information about the event. The heart of the system was the registration form, which could be adapted to the most genuine needs. The organizer decided what questions he wants to ask his guests - in addition to the basic information, this could have been a question about accommodation, food options or size of the shirt. This form was integrated with payments, and then it could appear on the website generated in the system, or on the organizer's own website. The system also allowed to check the presence of participants at an event at many places at the same time and to use QR code readers, and after a successful meeting - issuing invoices, participation diplomas and gathering feedback.

This whole system was available in two languages - Polish and English - and was adapted to all mobile devices. The interface was highly intuitive and did not cause a problem to any of the users.
