Manage events and promotions with ease

For professional event planning, Eventbrite has a leg up on Evite.

Eventbrite is a Web-based application for managing event registration. The site covers all aspects related to promoting and putting on an event, from setting details such as event descriptions and ticket prices to creating a Web page that your attendees visit to purchase tickets and register. The service also offers tools for publicizing the event, such as integrated affiliate programs and a Web ad builder.

Eventbrite is most obviously aimed at businesses and organizations, charging a fee of 2.5 percent of ticket prices for any paid events, and allowing for easy online purchasing. It can also come in handy for individuals, too, and you won't be charged a dime for free events. Plus, the site is clean and straightforward enough for pretty much anyone with Web browsing experience to figure out. Still, Evite is the obvious choice for personal event planning.
