Localist

Localist is online calendar software for marketing people.

Localist’s cloud-based calendar takes the confusion out of managing events, turning existing event content into a powerful marketing driver that saves time, boosts attendance, and increases overall brand awareness.

Localist’s founders built the platform when they grew tired of learning about events after they had happened. They wanted a way for organizations to promote the great events they were having in a way their audiences would truly appreciate and use.

Localist was adapted to be a powerful tool for event organizers while still serving as a resource for site visitors.
