A Brief Review of the Best WordPress Event Calendar: Modern Events Calendar

Written by

When it comes to WordPress event management, you won’t find anything better than Modern Events Calendar by Webnus. It is such a feature rich and expansive product that we can’t even call it a plugin; it is a software.

So, why is MEC the best event manager for WordPress, in our opinion?

Let us first start with the pricing. Modern Events Calendar is a freemium product and has two versions:

  1. Lite
  2. Pro

As suggested by the name, the Lite version is completely free and is a good way to test things out if you don’t want to commit fully at first.

MEC Pro costs 79 USD for a single license that can be used on ONE WordPress and has one year of updates and support. After your subscription runs out you can still use the product but you won’t be eligible for support and receiving updates.

Now you might ask what are the differences between MEC Lite and Pro?

The biggest difference is that MEC Lite doesn’t have a ticketing and reservation system. There are also some views that are only available in MEC Pro, such as Agenda or Map views. We have prepared a detailed table comparing MEC Pro and Lite with the competition and you can clearly see that even MEC Lite is more feature-rich than some of its paid competitors.

Another feature that makes MEC a great option for your events are its numerous addons. There are a whole host of addons that you can purchase to expand the functionalities of MEC or to make it more customizable. Keep in mind that these addons are all separate purchases and some of them don’t work with MEC Lite because the features they add or expand upon are not in MEC Lite to begin with.

Apart from all of this, MEC is supported by a team of professionals that work 24/7 to fix issues and respond to your queries. Together with its support team, MEC has a rich database of video and written guides and documentation that help you understand the various options and how they work, to make the learning curve as manageable as possible.

However, you have nothing to fear if you are not a tech-savvy person or lack coding knowledge. We have designed MEC based on the latest trends in design and coding, with the aim of making things as easy as possible, to make MEC accessible to anyone. You will find most of the options in MEC are very intuitive and there are popups that briefly explain certain options that we felt might be complicated for some.

If you are a developer and want to use MEC for your clients, we have thought about you as well. MEC is made by developers for developers. We have provided a set of developer documentation that help you customize the plugin to your specific needs. Apart from that, MEC has integration with most popular WordPress products, to make working with them seamless and easy. WooCommerce, BuddyBoss, Zapier, Zoom, Elementor, etc. are just some of the many third-party products that MEC integrates with.

If you still have your doubts about MEC Pro, then let us tell you about the 30-day, unconditional refund policy that it has. We are confident in our product and trustful of our users. Therefore, we have provided the opportunity for you to buy MEC and use it for a while to see if you like it or if it does what you want it to do. In the rare event that you weren’t satisfied with MEC, you have the ability to get unconditional, full refund on your purchase, provided that you are within the 30-day window from the purchase date.
