Ex Ordo's New Direction: Your Scholarly Events Partner
Scholarly events are a key part of the research lifecycle. They’re important. Many aspects of scholarship, like idea generation, publication, policy development, and research collaborations have their beginnings in scholarly events.
"I’ve always believed that scholarly events are the true social network of academia. When we bring people together, whether that’s in person or online, we unlock the potential for knowledge. To accelerate knowledge, we need to make it easier for these communities to meet. Our mission is to provide conference organisers and association professionals with the best solutions to run their meetings more effectively, to ensure that their valuable research reaches a broader audience. Every day, our customers trust us with their reputation. And we exist because of the daily promise we make to them. This is true partnership. This is our bond." – Paul Killoran, Ex Ordo founder and CEO
At Ex Ordo, we understand that scholarly events have specific needs. And we believe that these needs are underserved, with event organisers often left feeling stressed and overworked, dealing with workarounds and lack of support.
Our powerful, flexible software is designed specifically for the needs of scholarly events. Earlier this year, we announced the new direction of our platform and our business towards solving three core problems impacting event organisers: bandwidth and capacity issues; integrating events with wider organisational workflows; and receiving quality, timely support. And our updated visual identity signals a new era of innovation and opportunity…
Our revised logo represents the three foundational principles of our value offering – bandwidth, integrations, and support. The interlocking shapes and lines which reflect the patterns of Celtic knotwork are a nod to Ex Ordo’s Irish roots, and symbolise the strength of the bonds which unite us as a team. And our new tagline – your scholarly events partner – is our statement of intent to the industry, reaffirming our commitment to our valued customers and partners.
Besides a new logo, tagline, and colour palette, we’ve also made enhancements to both UI and UX design which accommodate a more inclusive user-experience. These changes will be rolled out across our Ex Ordo system, company website, and all of our digital assets from 24 October 2023.
Evolving our identity to better align with our values and the way we now serve our customers marks an exciting milestone on our company journey. And we look forward to strengthening bonds with all of our stakeholders in the years to come.
