Below is an overview of all the key PRO features:

Recurring Events

Avoid carpel tunnel. Your events can now be configured on a regular basis, using an admin interface consistent with that seen on other popular calendar tools like Google Calendar or iCal. Need daily, weekly, monthly, yearly repetitions? We even added custom recurrences to support complex recurring events such as "the 4th Thursday of every other month" and more.

Recurring Events

Custom Event Attributes

Your events are special. You may need to display the catering options, what type of dogs are allowed, and if this is a singles mixer or just for swingers. Event details beyond time, date, venue and organizer can now be displayed prominently in your event listing. Custom Attributes allows you to add new fields across your events.

Front End

Saved Venues and Organizers

Are your events at the same venues hosted by the same organizers? PRO will save you some serious time and help avoid those nasty little typos. Just enter a place or person once and they’re saved to the backend, accessible via a dropdown on all events you create. Oh, snap.

Venue View & Single Day View

Is everyone jazzed about the events happening at your most popular venue? Now you can showcase all upcoming events at a given venue. Give the lowdown on the venue and list all upcoming events. The single day view lists all the events taking place on any given day of the month. Perfect for sites with tons of things happening at once. Powerful and simple.

Super Awesome Widgets

We've upgraded the widgets and added new ones. With PRO you can limit upcoming events by category and pick exactly which event meta is shown in the list widget. You can even add a small calendar to your sidebar showing the events for the current month.

Ajax calendar

Pages load faster, and that is good. Events Calendar PRO now uses AJAX in modern browsers to load the calendar view. Flipping through the months has never been so easy (or so fast).

Advanced event admin

Wish you could look in the event admin list and just see all the events happening at a specific venue, between the dates of Feb 1, 2012 and May 3, 2012, that are FREE and organized by Peter Parker? Now you can. And you can save that crazy lookup so you don't have to build it again. The Events Calendar PRO integrates the Modern tribe Advanced Post Manager, a custom post framework written by a few smarty pants devs on our crew. It makes handling and managing giant lists of events a pleasant and manageable experience.
