Modern Events Calendar (MEC): The Most Stylish and Modern WordPress Event Calendar
Modern EC is an all-in-one WordPress event calendar plugin providing advanced quality features and customizability. The good thing is that MEC is compatible with most of the SEO plugins as well as most of the popular WordPress cache plugins.
MEC is available in both Lite (free) and Pro versions. The Lite version has a great design right out of the box which makes it perfect for those who are on a tight budget or non-expert users with basic event management requirements. While the Lite version delivers great features which tops Events Calendar Pro and EventOn, if you do wish to access features like reminders, location directions, a ticketing system, a weather module, and an online booking system (to name just a few), you might want to upgrade to MEC Pro. You can check out the differences between the Pro and Lite versions of MEC plugin here.
