Our story

eventplus was founded to fulfill a need in the events sector where event professionals felt limited by simple entry form registration and wanted something more comprehensive for their business.  

Busy event owners wanted their software platform to do more for them, handling the mundane stuff and allowing them to focus on growing their business.

After extensive industry consultation the eventplus platform was launched in 2012, and quickly became popular with sports events in Australia and New Zealand.

eventplus has developed a culture of innovation driven by ideas and feedback from the event community, and continues to deliver tangible benefits to clients.

Why Events?

For the eventplus team events have been a way of life for a long time. 

We come from backgrounds of corporate politics, gantt charts, accounting and now it’s exciting to be playing a part in people overcoming their barriers, achieving their goals and creating special memories.

Events provide the journey and the platform for passionate people to connect. Behind all this are passionate event professionals, working tirelessly to deliver amazing events. We want to be part of that team and contribute to their success.

We feel fortunate to be working in an industry which embraces the better part of life.
