Love this Plugin - it works great and the support is amazing - I've used tons of plugins over many years and they have the best support of any plugin hands down! Also highly recommend the paid version - worth the extra features.

Great plug-in with top notch support The plug in does exactly what it needs to do. I needed help customizing the widget and the full woks team got back time quickly with the .css that did exactly what I needed

Exactly what we were looking for. A lot of customization options. Looks good.

I really like this plugin and it has greatly improved how our events look on our site. We were previously using one of the locally installed WP events plugins, which was always a bit dated in appearance. The paid version makes the most of the EventBrite APIs and keeps our visitors on our site. I add my 5* to the others and can't quite understand the solitary 3* review "free average, paid for good". For me that's exactly what I want in a plugin - a chance to try it and then support the developers to ensure I can keep using it in the long term!
