Q. Both nonprofits and venues benefit from the current functioning as it allows for events to have a hosting organization and a venue. Therefore the business directory entry for both have the event. And, we have customized the business directory function substantially to highlight those with events. Will there be a way for users to attach their events to their TN business directory listing?

A. Yes - use our Developer environment - here.
Q. We typically have individual widgets for special events - Ie: Independence Day and Halloween. The widget looks just like the regular calendar, but only shows those particular events.

A. We currently provide content widgets - so you can include them on their "sports or lifestyle" sections for instance. Here are 2 articles that describe this feature in more detail.
Q. Will event promoters still be able to enter events into Townnews, or will they need yet another sign in to Evvnt to submit calendar items.
