The calendar at EventCheck Knox is for planners.
Thus, we present the Top 10 reasons why you need to use it now.
No. 10: It’s not cluttered. It includes events that planners need to know about, not a long list of everything happening around town.
No. 8: It’s easy to submit an event for the calendar, and there is a gatekeeper to ensure calendar entries are relevant to planners.
No. 6: It has a robust search function to find events by name, category, venue or organizer.
No. 5: It includes links to other community calendars so planners have a one-stop site in case they need extensive information about all kinds of events, such as concerts and festivals.
No. 4: It helps to preserve planner sanity. There is nothing worse than planning an event and sending invitations, only to find out a similar event will be on the same day. This calendar’s intent is to prevent that from happening on the front end.
No. 3: The calendar is populated months in advance with events already listed in 2016. You can stake your claim to a date right now!
No. 2: Planners don’t need to know every detail to place an event on the calendar, not even the time or venue. All you need is a confirmed date. The details can be added later.
No. 1: And the number one reason to use the calendar is that there is a live person available at all times to answer questions, revise entries and update events. Email [email protected] with any questions. I am happy to help!
