As we welcome in the New Year, let’s take a quick look at how EventAvenue, your online registration solution has evolved.
In 2009, there were 3 significant additions to EventAvenue – two new modes of payment - Cash Card and Debit Cards and the addition of more banks to the direct debit option.

EventAvenue went ‘live’ with a cash card option by signing an agreement with ItzCash Card.
