What is Dryfta?
The most inclusive event platform built for academia & non-profits. At Dryfta, it is our mission to help academic conferences become more engaging and profitable.
As we move forward, being an enabler of academic events, our natural course of action would be to launch a publishing & monetization platform for knowledge producers largely covering the rest of the entire academic research lifecycle.
Clients we work with
Dryfta has always been focused on providing universities & non-profits with an all-inclusive event management platform to manage their events and conferences. It helps event organizers manage events and conferences using one platform with centralized & singular data. Less tools to manage. More time saved. More money made.
One of the very important reasons why Dryfta is the perfect choice for event organizers is its robust business continuity plan through which Dryfta provides more control in hands of its customers by having its source code and assets including customer data, stored on cloud servers (powered by IBM, Softlayer, and Google Cloud) and data storage systems (provided by Amazon S3).
In terms of security, platform robustness and exhaustive features list, none of the existing event platform providers are able to match Dryfta event platform.

What is with the name
Devising a name for our event platform was pretty simple actually. You see, conferences produce knowledge. Every conference you go to, you learn something new, you stumble upon new findings & trends, and you acquire new knowledge.
Therefore, to name our platform, the first thing we needed to do was to find a verb, an activity which is the core of every conference. So, we gave it a thought: At a conference, the most frequent activity we do, apart from scoffing biscuits and persistently trying to look all pretty and suave, is we meet and we discuss. And out of those discussions, we produce new knowledge. So, the first idea was loud and clear. The verb should be Discuss.
The second part of naming our event platform was to choose a language for the verb, discuss. Now, when it comes to discussing and rewarding new findings and achievements, it would not be unwise to say that the Nobel prize immediately comes to mind. In the contemporary world, the Nobel prize is the ultimate validation of someone’s profound knowledge. And Sweden is the country which gives out the Nobel prize. So, the second idea was loud and clear too. The verb had to be Swedish!
Dryfta (pronounced Dree-f-ta) is the Swedish word for the English word, Discuss.
