Best event planning posts 2013

If you missed them last year I wanted to let you know that we launched 3 super successful initiatives in 2013.

The Event App Bible and The Good Event Registration Guide, two reports respectively on event apps and online registration tools. They were both downloaded more than 16,000 times. You can get your copy for free, no email required.

We also launched Fudge, a WordPress Premium Theme that revolutionised event websites forever.

Enough said.
