JEM is based on the famous Eventlist component, originally developed by Schlu.
It's a full-featured package that includes the core component as well as some very helpful modules and plugins.

JEM is open source and is developed, maintained and supported by an active community of volunteers.

September 2021
JEM 2.3.3 is a maintenance version with minor changes to make JEM install correctly on Joomla 3.10.1. JEM 2.3.3 is not yet ready for PHP8 / Joomla4.

June 2021
JEM 2.3.1 is a maintenance version. Changes are made only in the component with some fixes for bugs and broken views. JEM 2.3.1 is not yet ready for PHP8.

March 2020
We are proud to announce JEM 2.3.0, our first fully responsive version of JEM! We also cleaned up the Frontend Edit Event screen to make it more logical and fixed a number of other enhancements. Check the change log at our site to see them all.
Please note thif you are updating an existing install, JEM automatically switches to this new responsive layout. If you want to use the old layout, in the Backend of your Joomla site go to Components -> JEM -> Settings -> Basic Settings and under Style, change the Layout Style back to Legacy (Table Style)

February 2018
We just released Version 2.2.3. Apart from many little fixes, we have added some nice new functions like Copy buttons for events and venues, straight from the details view and Calendar view, Ajax functionality now implemented in the standard Calendar Module (supports Ajax whenever possible), and registrations are now cleaned up on event deletion.

October 2017
Version 2.2.2 is out, now using the Joomla! Update System, so you will never miss a new version again! We also improved the code, thus making our rock stable extension even faster than before. We introduce custom fields in modules and there is a brand new plugin to list your events in any article.

September 2016
Version 2.2.0 is out, featuring enhanced Event Registration possibilities. Event creators can Invite, users can set they will Attend / Wil Not Attend. The mailer plugin now supports these changes too.
Apart for this we modified many views and fixes some other minor issues.

May 2016
For version 2.1.6 we are happy to announce that JEM is now fully PHP7 compatible! We also introduce a sidebar in the backend views when installed on Joomla 3, thus giving JEM a more native J!3 user experience.
Event registration has been enhanced, to allow attendees to send an additional comment with their registration.
And apart from this, many, many smaller enhancements and bug fixes.

November 2015
A new version of JEM was released. Along with a lot of smaller improvements (see the changelog for them) we are taking a huge step forward, bringing JEM in line with the standard Joomla ACL rules.
Before you upgrade a current installation please consider:
If you use template overrides please note that all views have been changed and there is a good chance that your overrides won't work as expected. So please check the changes and adapt your files.

August 2015
The JEM Team have released a security release and we encourage all JEM users to update your current installations.
Additionally, you will find a new module in the package: the Jubilee Module. This module shows (past) events on a specific (e.g. current) day and month ignoring the year. Useful e.g. for a birthday list.
It's our birthday gift to the Joomla! Community that now celebrates it's 10th Birthday!

JEM consists of:

The JEM core component handles:
- Venue management (with built-in geocoding)
- Event Management. Events can be a one-off, or a repeating event with complex repeating patterns
- Repeating events can be auto-created in a configurable future time-window
- Category management (Events can be part of multiple, nested categories)
- Group management (for view access rights)
- Front end editing of events
- Auto-archiving of passed events. Archived events can be copied into a new future event.
- Attendees management, including waiting list and email notifications for attendees

Events display options:
- Day View

Almost perfect

Posted on 11 May 2018
The only problem is i could not manage to find a way repeat event every Saturday for example, not ever 1, 2, 3 or 4th, but EVERY Saturday.
Ease of use
If you know what you need - is easy to use.
I used this to: Planing event in a public organization.
Owner's reply: Hi there Eugen,

Thanks for the positive reply!

To repeat an event every week, just choose 'weekly' in the recurrence settings of the event, and the event will be repeated every week.

Please not that there is a general setting to set the time-window for many days forward repeating events are auto-created. That setting must, off course, be longer than a week ;-)
In the backend: JEM -> Settings -> Global Parameters -> "Generate events up to (days)...."

Good luck!

Very great

Works just as expected
Ease of use
Totally easy to setup, almost everything totally self explanatory

Works well - robust

Posted on 03 February 2017
Quite sophisticated events management. Events, maps, attendees, emails and etc. The various display modules are a bonus.
Ease of use
Easy to get started for a moderately experienced user.
Forum support is very good with fast responses to questions.
Documentation is clear and quite sufficient to get things working. For extras use the forum.
I used this to: Organizing regular events and activities for a small club.
Not full. Make a possibility of display of the rubricator in the joomla module, for placement in a template position.
Ease of use
Bad. At a forum of the answer you won't wait

After using Eventlist i found this a more than equal solution. I think it is a well thought design. It works fine and looks good.
Ease of use
There is more in the product than you expect at first glance. Sometimes hidden like the participants list that pops up after clicking,,,
I used this to: List of events and subscriptions for membership and also planning (polling) of events by using open dates..
The component offers everything I needed.
Ease of use
There are a lot of parameters and possibilities. The User has to search sometimes a little bit to find the right option.
I had one question and posted this in the forum. It was answer very fast and very helpful.
I found all that I need.
I used this to: Customer information.
A lot of planning layouts. Very well realized
Ease of use
Quite easy
I did not need, for now.

Well done
I used this to: I use it to represent the planning of rooms booked in a guests house. I wrote some sql requests to automaize the data processing from JhotelReservation (CMSJunkie) and JEM.

Perfect and simple

It does what it has to do... and more
Ease of use
Easily to configure
Perfect (and even on a sunday)
Nice layout, easy to manage
Ease of use
Does the job as easy as cooking an egg
Very cool support (and fast)
No need as installation and use are simples
I used this to: A friendly gamers team
It was longtime the reason not to upgrade Joomla! Now with JEM there are much more possibilities.
Ease of use
It's easy to migrate from eventlist to JEM and then to Joomla!3
The developer team is small, but very quick with help.
There's a big help in backend.
I used this to: events in dancing, events for young people in parishes...
