Features

Organizers love our features — we think you will too!

Call for Papers

Every event starts with the first talk submission — make it easy

No more online forms or emails — you can have your call for speakers in minutes! Custom categorization is very easy to setup, and it can help a lot when building agenda.

Evaluate Submissions

Easily curate content that will make your conference stand out

Invite your content team members to join you in voting for the best submitted sessions. Use our smart voting mechanism to select the best content for your event.

Manage Content

Everything in one place, easy to manage for you & your speakers

Edit all session and speaker info in one place. Allow speakers to edit or add their info. Manage service sessions

Communication

Your speakers are rock stars — treat them as such

Congratulate to the chosen speakers, gently reject those not as fortunate. Talk to your speakers, send them info, surveys and reminders; arrange travel details. Never leave a speaker behind!

Build Schedule

Building an event schedule doesn’t have to be hard

Just drag and drop your sessions around and end up with a complete schedule for your event. You can embed it on your website, or retrieve as JSON or XML if you feel more advanced.

Mobile & Web App

The big day is here — make the content accessible to everyone

You can have a mobile app with schedule in seconds. Participants can favorite their sessions and build their own schedule.

...and much more!
