“There are a lot of apps for events and this was absolutely the smart choice for me”

Everything I need to hold seminars and workshops. Don’t let the name ‘Event Espresso’ fool you. Packed into a few letters is one very powerful plug in. My website runs Event Espresso for all my seminars and workshops open to the public. I have the full package that integrates all my payments, populates my calendar, sends email confirmations that I can create my custom templates for. I can set up an event and wait for sign up notifications without having to keep checking. There are a lot of apps for events and this was absolutely the smart choice for me. –kimslaunwhite
