10 Awesome WordPress Themes for Events
Many businesses manage professional events on a regular basis. They use public and private events to connect with their leads, clients, fans, and everyone in between. If you find yourself throwing many events on a monthly basis, you are better off creating an online presence just to cover them. Using the right event themes for WordPress would allow you to connect with your leads and fans more effectively. Here are 10 WordPress event themes that can handle the job:

Nice overview, but I feel perhaps our GeoPlaces v4 theme also deserved to be there. I know it's not strictly events oriented, but if you turn off the homepage map and places – it's events all the way 🙂
Keep up the good work

Hi Verdan. I don't disagree. 🙂

Great list 🙂
I note that a lot of event themes are based on a calendar.
I'm developping a premium event theme at the moment and I don't use calendar. This theme will allow you to manage speakers, presentations (conference, workshop), schedule, sponsors (gold, silver, bronze), staff members … with custom post types and metaboxes instead.
There are not a good or bad way to manage an event web site, just different solutions.
I try to finish my event theme for this summer. If you are interested, you can fill the form on my coming soon page (kattagami.com)
