EventsNOVA
I urgently needed a plugin for handling my events, mainly small-medium conferences. After looking through reviews I decided to give a try to EventsNOVA first as it seemed to be quite good actually.

The two important feature I needed were easy customization (layout etc), extended multi language support and strong integration with social.

Now I wonder how this could have 5 stars review, that in my opinion are simply untrue.

Just to recap the experience I had with my points
1) Customization: templating mechanism is just a pain to get and totally non-standard, at least compared to what other pugin vendors do
2) Multi language: a few of my German and Russian  customers complained about a poor translation, mostly similar to a BOT. In addition there are problems displaying unicode chars
3) Social: integration with Jomsocial does not work at all

Probably these are solvable issues, however right now I don't feel giving 5 stars is honest.

We have documentation for all features, however we would love your feedback. Our support forum is available 24 hours if you would like to post an issue there, you can also email support@eventsnova.com.

Reply: This is the easiest template system we have developed. If you wanted then we can built up the template for you.

Reply: We are not professional language translators.

3) Social: integration with Jomsocial does not work at all.
Reply: you must have to install Jomsocial plugin for Eventsnova. We are providing JomSocial plugins as well as there is a back end setting to integrate eventsnova with jomSocial. So all profile links will be redirect to JomSocial.

Thanks.
