Hi Matija,

Event Espresso 4 actually has a built-in migration tool that will migrate the EE3 data into EE4-compatible tables.

You can learn more about the migration tool in the documentation:

The speed at which the migration takes places depends on many factors but it should not be as slow as you mentioned above (unless you have a really large EE3 database).

What type of hosting are you using?

Are you testing the migration on a development server? locally? or live?
