About ePly

ePly Online Event Registration grew out of an idea that co-founder Jim Romanik had in 2001 while attending business school. After writing the business plan, he decided to start the company when he graduated.

Jim joined forces with co-founder Terry Haroldson, who has been ePly’s main software developer, leading the team that invested tens of thousands of hours building ePly online registration into a powerful, reliable system.

The name ePly was based on Reply as in RSVP with an initial “e” for electronic, as in email and ecommerce. Jim had that idea back when the company started, creating an internet domain name that was simple and easy-to-remember.

Since 2001, ePly has handled conferences, galas, sporting events and workshops for 600+ different organizations across North America including corporations, event-planning companies, government agencies, not-for-profits and universities.

These clients include American Society of Interior Designers, Best Buy, Better Business Bureau, British Columbia Pharmacy Association, Canadian Cancer Society, various Canadian government departments, Lexmark, NextEra Energy Resources, Rogers and Saskatchewan Union of Nurses.

ePly is a privately-held corporation based in Vancouver, Canada.
