EventBoxes are used by event organisers. The EventBox is a software application that runs on a laptop that you can use to scan registrants when they arrive, print badges, help registrants who have lost their vouchers, allow people to register on the spot and so on.

The EventBoxes page in Visit displays the status of all the linked EventBoxes.
