Events Factory is the best Joomla! solution for scheduling events and online ticketing. The extension gives organizers freedom to create, manage and promote any type of event independently, by adding all the desired details (like event title, description, image, date, fees, etc.). Also, events can be managed by another person which has access to certain sections of the event. Once an event is published, the interested site users are allowed to register for it (for free or by paying a participation fee).
Having a fully customizable template system, webmasters even without any PHP knowledge can easily modify the look of any page in our extension. There is no need for the webmaster to change the extension's code, and this will ensure a 100% upward compatibility with our future releases. Just back up the template folder and all of your customizations will be safe. The Events Factory package includes ALL PHP sources (nothing encrypted) and one set of generic templates (commented in the files - for a better understanding) along with a full documentation of the template system (available under documentation in our website).
Events Factory can be considered both a social platform and an event organizer, allowing users to interact with each other over common interests such as concerts, theater plays, charity events, etc. Each profile includes configurable details such as name, e-mail or geolocation. Users have the possibility of organizing their own events, updating information such as time, date, whether it's a recurring or a one-time blowout, etc., as well as managing the events created by other users, all of these features being intuitively found under the 'My Profile' section. For the entrepreneurs who are seeking to benefit financially from administrating an event website, this extension puts a solution on the table in the form of Pay per Event feature. Depending on the amplitude, the theme, the complexity of the "happening", organizers may or may not have to pay for their event to be listed. Furthermore, attendees themselves may or may not pay for tickets, entrance fees, again depending on the event nature.
Some of the great features that Events Factory has to offer are:
- Fully customizable template system and CSS
- Smarty based template, as well as default responsive template
- Used for organizing, promoting and booking events
- Configure with a few simple clicks every section, page, field
- Recurring Events (daily, weekly, monthly, yearly)
