EventNook was founded by Kyaw Lin Oo in 2011 after extensive experience of building event registration software as a vendor employee. He realised that to build truly good software requires the type of focus, time and budget that is rare to attain if it’s built for a single company or event.

He felt that while there were several companies in the market offering this type of solution, some were too consumer oriented and not suitable for larger events; while others were made for corporate use, but lacked an intuitive user interface.
