Our users promote events from all over the world, often on the same website. In a global environment, where someone is looking for events, this functionality is key to making things simpler and more accessible.

The free WordPress plugin Events Manager, developed and maintained by NetWebLogic, announces the launch of its latest 5.5 software update. The changes will allow users to search event sites and locations, promote events with more engaging photos and content, as well as provide a streamlined calendar to improve page loading times.

One of the biggest highlights is the revamped event searching functionality, which includes geolocation searches. This “Search Near” field manipulates Google Places to pull events near a certain location, so potential customers can search for specific events and event sites with ease.

Additionally, new ticket features include the ability for page managers to restrict tickets to certain guests, cap the spaces between single bookings, and limit the time of day that tickets can be purchased.

“Our users promote events from all over the world, often on the same website. In a global environment, where someone is looking for events, this functionality is key to making things simpler and more accessible,” said Lead Developer and Founder, Marcus Sykes. “We’re additionally pleased to provide an even more professional-looking interface at no cost to users by way of our free Events plugin for WordPress, whether it’s a small business or large corporate website.”

Events Manager integrates with the powerful and renowned blogging platform, WordPress, to create a full-service event registration and booking system. This extensive Events plugin is constantly evolving, providing not only a powerful events system for end-users but also a flexible framework for developers wanting to make custom implementations for their customers and websites. Bloggers, web developers, and businesses can use the plugin to coordinate the booking of events among thousands of people.

The Events Manager application includes feature-packed framework and community support forums which is downloadable for free. For those power-users looking for even more features, Events Manager Pro costs $75 for one site, or $150 for a developer's license across five sites. More advanced features include premium support forums, features and add-ons, one year of updates, and one year of Pro Support.
