If you have been organizing events using EventNook for online event registration or selling event ticket, you may know how easy to set up the custom event registration form with the drag & drop form editor to add and customize the form controls (fields) to collect information from your event’s attendees or guests.

Today, we added the following new features:

  1. Country List – the dropdown list with auto populated countries
  2. Group Header – Title for the group of controls (E.g., Company Details)
  3. Add Other Option (applicable only for Multiple Choice, Checkboxes and Dropdown controls) – to allow users enter the “Other” option information which is not included in the options list of provided in the registration form.

Here are some screenshots of the new controls we added:

EventNook is Featured on The Business Times, Singapore!

We are excited to share that The Business Times featured EventNook on 28th Jun 2014 as one of the online event platforms which makes it easy for local event organizers to set up a simple, mobile friendly event registration and ticketing site in minutes, all by yourself.

With EventNook mobile friendly site, your attendees can also register for an event or buy ticket on the go! A few of our trusted partners include Hub Singapore, Rise & Shine Expo, Singapore Yacht Show, MediaCorp Parenting Talk, Singapore National Productivity Conference.

5 ways to celebrate Fathers’ Day & more parenting events

A son’s first hero, a daughter’s first love – fathers indeed. This Sunday 15 June, let us all gather our love, gratitude and immense respect for our first hero and first love to celebrate Father’s Day 2014. While we were all busy growing up, spending more time in school, at work or with our friends, we might have forgotten the one who was silently supporting us behind our back.

Here are 5 simple things you can do for/with your Super Dad this Father’s Day.

1. Whip up a meal for him

You do not need to be Gordon Ramsey or Martin Yan in the kitchen, just prepare a simple meal or dessert that your dad love it, and I am sure it will put a smile on his face. If you have no idea where you can start from, you can start googling for recipes or meat dishes could be the recipe you are looking for! Alternatively, you can choose to bring daddy dearest out for a meal to pamper him with his favourite cuisine or gourmet.

2. Catch a show/movie CBTDCheaper by the Dozen 2, a family comedy about a dad and his 12 children

Spend some quality time with your father by watching his favourite drama or movie with him, or you can be the one picking the show. Choose something hilarious for you and your dad to unwind and bond with one another through laughter. Create happy moments with him on this day especially if you are really busy at school or at work.

3. Have a game or two

You can sit down somewhere with your dad and have a few rounds of Chinese chess or English chess with him. Alternatively, if your family enjoy doing sports you can have a few rounds of racquet or ball games with him. This is a good opportunity for you and your dad to sweat it out despite busy schedule and to keep him fit and healthy.

4. Coffee or Tea? How about a brew?

Daddy dearest might need to relax and take his mind off his workload. You can plan to take him for a stroll at a park nearby or have a drink with him! Share your daily happenings with him over a cup of coffee or tea. You can also bring him to a brewery to have a drink or two. Your dad will be elated to hear about the new guy or girl you met at the bar last week!

5. Bring him out for a spa or massage session

Who says only women deserves to be pampered? Treat your dad to a rejuvenating and relaxing spa or massage session. Allow him to take his mind off any vexing matters momentarily and recharge.

Every dad is different in their own way, and the way every dad brings their children up would differ as well. But it is undeniable that their love for their children will ever fall behind. Our Dad’s almighty love granted us enormous strength to conquer the world. This Fathers’ Day, EventNook would like to wish all the fathers out there a very Happy Father’s Day! If you are planning any form of event to celebrate this occasion, check us out at EventNook.com. You can also sign up for upcoming parenting events here , to experience parenthood to the fullest!

1 Day HTML/CSS Weekend Crash Course

Type in “HTML crash course” on Google and you can find detailed information on learning HTML, so why should you attend this crash course?

HTML/ CSS

We understand that self-learning can be pretty frustrating and not everyone has the luxury to attend a 3-month HTML course while working or attending school. So a 1-day crash course will equip you with a strong foundation for you to build your revisions on.

Your primary goal is to get your “hands dirty” and make tons of mistakes!
It is through mistakes that we learn and remember.

The agenda for our course includes:

  • Understanding the link to HTML, browsers, server and internet history
  • “Why” and “How” code works
  • HTML tags, CSS techniques and basic JavaScript
  • Incorporate plugins and embedding onto your current site
  • Exercise good coding habits
  • Recognise good designs
  • Building a beautiful web page from scratch with CSS framework like Bootstrap

Join in on the action

Bring your laptop on the 22nd March 2014 Saturday, at Plugin Blk 71 Ayer Rajah Crescent.
Meet our amazing speakers and network with other attendees. We hope to see you soon!

Speakers

We promise you that you will walk away confident with using HTML, achieve better coding habits and get resources to dive in from building your website from scratch.

Sistic or EventNook: Which is best for event organisers?

EventNook - the Sistic AlternativeRecently, people have been asking whether they can use EventNook in the same way as SISTIC to sell event tickets. EventNook can be a viable alternative to most, although there are some types of events we cannot cater to.

Eventnook logoTo make things clearer, here’s an overview of what EventNook can and cannot do. Let’s start with what we cannot do, so we don’t waste your time!

New to EventNook? Click here for a quick one-minute overview!

1. Cannot: Assigned seating

Some events will assign a seat number to every attendee. This is especially common with large performances and sometimes with concerts.

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide assigned seating at the moment. We may add this feature in the future.

2.Cannot: Network of authorized agents

Unlike SISTIC, we don’t have the disposal of a network of authorized agents ticket-printerfor ticket pick-up. We are also not going to have one. It simply doesn’t fit with the times any more. Even airlines work almost exclusively with e-tickets these days.

This feature must have been really useful when SISTIC started its phone booking services back in 1991, but really, we don’t think it’s necessary these days. Nevertheless, should you wish to make use of a ticket network, it’s probably best to stay with SISTIC.

3. Can: E-ticketing

We will send e-tickets directly to your attendees’ e-mail address immediately upon receipt of payment. These tickets will contain a bar code so that you can handle them just as easily as tickets printed at an authorized agent, saving both time and money for the event organiser and attendees alike. (You may want to check out our QR code ticket check-in!)

Singapore Dollars

What are you going to do with all the money saved?

4. Can: Save money

Because of what we don’t do, EventNook is a lot cheaper to use than SISTIC. We use a no-nonsense fee structure, and you will always only pay for what you use.

  • EventNook charges no setup fees or any other fixed fee.
  • Pay only for what you use. If you sell 20 tickets of $50 each, you pay only $31. No other hidden fees!
  • It’s absolutely free to sell free tickets on EventNook (and always will be).

5. Can: EventNook is reliable

BMW

We take reliability every bit as serious as BMW

When you sell tickets for events, there is often a rush period where everyone tries to book their ticket. SISTIC has been known for outages, especially when large K-POP events hit Singapore.

Of course, you don’t want your ticketing provider to fail you when you need them most!

That is why EventNook is built on the latest technologies to be scalable and reliable. Our cloud-based back end is of the highest grade; other companies making use of the same setup include Toyota and BMW.

But don’t take our word for it. Many event organisers have opted for EventNook over SISTIC already, including Singapore Yacht Show 2014, DBS-HUB Social Entrepreneurship Bootcamp, and Opp Live 2014.

6. Can: Collect audience data

Would you like to have the e-mail addresses of everyone who comes to your event?

On EventNook, you can customize the sign-up form to ask any question that is relevant to your event. You can set mandatory and optional questions.

You might also like to know other facts about who’s coming, such as their age, their favorite music style, their preferred drink or where they first found out about your event. The more you know about who’s coming, the better you can be prepared!

You can ask people whether they would like to opt-in to your e-mail list, and that way you will have an easy way to promote future events to those who have already come to your events before. You’ll build an automatic e-mail list without any extra effort!

Not only that, but with one click, you can save all the collected audience data to an Excel spreadsheet (or on Google Drive), and from there you can export it to other software, such as your CRM or e-mail marketing software.

7. Can: EventNook is easy to use

We take pride in making EventNook extremely easy to use. For both organisers and participants. No matter how large your event is. You can set up your event registration in 10 minutes.

Hard to believe? If you’ve read all the way up to here, why don’t you give us a spin? As long as your tickets are free, you will never be charged anything. Go here to give EventNook a try.
