Timely's vision is to

Bring the world closer together, one event at a time


because when people come together, good things happen: we develop stronger bonds, deeper understandings, a sense of connection, even love. An event calendar is one of the primary ways that a community shares these events and we want to bring you the best possible calendar.

Why are calendars so important?

Calendars play a fundamental role in our daily lives. Why?

  • Calendars create order from chaos.

    They take the overwhelming number of events, meetings, parties, get togethers and appointments and put them into a useable workable order.

  • Calendars speak a universal language.

    Depending on who you are, your calendar will have different functions and goals. But whatever your goals, and whatever your audience, everybody can understand a calendar.

  • And calendars bring people closer together.

    Whether you use calendars to advertise your events, or showcase events from around your community to one central hub, you are creating connections and bringing communities closer.

For over 15 years, I'd been on the lookout for the right calendar tool, so you can imagine my delight when I found Time.ly. It has everything I wanted -- good visuals, ease of use, a DIY component for people to add their own events, great technical support -- as well as extras such as income-generating opportunities, autogenerated weekly emails and more. #Delighted

Why connected calendars?

Connected calendars automatically pull in events from around the web using calendar feeds.

  • If you are an event creator

    then feeds are great because it means your events will be automatically distributed to calendars around the web, with no extra work for you.

  • If you are looking to be the central hub of your community,

    then feeds mean you can ensure you don’t miss any of the plethora of events taking place in your world. Use a connected calendar to keep your calendar full and up to date, cement your reputation as the go-to organisation for your community, and save you time and money.

Timely's mission is to

Make it easier to discover and promote events


Why Timely?

There are many reasons to try a Timely calendar. Here are a few:

  • You'll be in good company

    Since Timely’s launch in March 2012, Timely calendars have been used on more than 160,000 websites, sharing millions of events every month in 12 languages across 150 countries.

  • It's easy to create a great calendar.

    Not only is it easy to set up, it's easy to fill your calendar with great events or promote them. Our automatic event discovery system can connect you to one of the largest event distribution systems in the world.

The Time.ly Hub calendar is easy to use and it looks great on our site. There are lots of features to choose from and we can pick what works best for us. It's a great value for the cost when compared with other calendar systems. I especially love the MailChimp integration and have received really positive feedback about the weekly emails.
