    15 Best PHP Event Calendar and Booking Scripts

    4elements | web design The Hague blog • 15 Best PHP Event Calendar and Booking Scripts

    There are several reasons PHP calendar, booking and events scripts might be a great addition to your website. If you’re a service provider, then it makes sense to have an appointment booking system on your site that allows potential customers to see your availability and select an appointment time and date that is best for them. This could cut down on needless calls to your business to make appointments and free up your time or your staff’s time.

    Online calendars are also handy for organisations of any size to help team members share events and tasks and keep each other abreast of what other members are working on.

    Their usefulness isn’t just limited to companies, however. Artists, writers, performers, bloggers and any other individual with an active public life could make good use of online calendars to let followers and fans know the whens and wheres of public appearances.

    With all this in mind, we’ve compiled 15 of our best PHP calendar, booking and events scripts available for download today at CodeCanyon. This post will help you choose the one that’s right for you.
