NEW YORK — Evvnt Inc., America's largest events discovery network, powering media brands such as USA Today, Adams Publishing Group and Lee Enterprises, is upgrading with faster event discovery calendars. The U.S-based company launched its lightning-fast, mobile-first v2 event discovery service network-wide at the end of March. 

“Event planners and the public rely on Evvnt discovery calendars to announce, promote and find local events ranging from comedy to local community events. In this release, we aim to improve the consumer event discovery experience with a real focus on search and mobile user experience,” said Richard Green, Evvnt founder.

“Our media partners will immediately see audience traffic growth with our v2 calendars, including new visitors that improved SEO brings,” said Peter Newton, Evvnt CEO - U.S. “We are already seeing spikes in self-transact marketing from event organizers, which means more revenue for our media partners.”

The redesign is aligned with Google best practice for mobile to increase functionality for local media websites to ensure exceptional local event discovery and to improve site speed, which has become incredibly important for local publishers.

Evvnt (evvnt.com) provides submit-once, everywhere marketing. Evvnt’s model allows event planners and promoters to easily get their events onto Evvnt calendars and into various online marketing and listing channels, with the option for newspapers to offer print.
