LJMU Online shop for event planning

What can Online Shop do for conference and events?
With LJMU's Online Shop system there is a conference and events module which is free to use by all departments in the University and has many advantages that may help with the management of conferences and events. The main advantage is that sale notifications are produced automatically on purchasing and these can be sent to multiple staff members involved in organising the conference/event. In addition, a delegate list is kept on the system and relevant staff may be set up as users.
Workshops may also be entered on the online shop, even multiple sessions being held at the same time so it allows attendees to pick from which sessions they would prefer.
If a conference/event has different price ranges (i.e. concessions for students) this can also be made possible as different categories can be put on for the customer/student to select. If a free conference is being held this can also be entered on the online shop to allow online registration and collection of attendee details.
If any additional information is required, a questionnaire may be added. Guest tickets can also be reserved (with a maximum per person) as well as optional extras, specific to an event.
Setting Up on the Online Shop
Setting up a conference/event on the online shop is really simple. You just need to include the following event details:
- date(s) of event
- time(s) of event
- start and end date for booking
- contact information
- sale notifications (if required)
- description of event
