About Grenadine Technologies

Who we are

Grenadine is a Montreal-based company that specializes in the development of Grenadine Event Planner, an Event Management Software (EMS).

We are a passionate and dedicated team with the ongoing mission to build and deliver the very best tools for event managers and event management. Every day, we use our creativity and our sense of awareness to come up with new ideas, new improvements and to ensure that we are closely connected and aligned with our customers’ needs.

Our goal is to produce easy-to-use software with rich, integrated and automated functionalities, and bring technology to the use of the core of all events: human connection.

Our story

In 2010, three friends who were accustomed to meet at and help organize sci-fi conventions around the world decided to develop planner software that could handle the complexity of such large events, without having to resort to spreadsheets and continuous email threads between planners. Our project was at first an open source project, the first version of which was used for Renovation, the 2011 World Science Fiction Convention, held in Reno, NV. To this day, we still use a core module of Grenadine Event Planner (creatively called planner-core) that is open source that is comprised primarily of the scheduling functionality.

In 2013 it became clear that the limitations of open-source development, with its team member’s typical limited time, was not sufficient to create a truly well-rounded solution. We decided to create Grenadine Technoloties Inc., and our team has steadily grown and has improved the software with many new functionalities.

Today, we continuously work to make the best event management software available on the market. Our platform integrates a strong core of scheduling functionality together with ticket selling, surveys, communications and attendee self-serve. Chances are that at this very moment that you’re reading these lines – night or day! -, we’re working hard on our next sprint delivery to add functionality and ease of use to your event planner!
