  • etc.

All budget figures and actual expenses can be tracked in one or multiple currencies, for those who host events that will have costs in more than one currency. For each expense, track the amount in the currency in which it was spent, as well as the exchange rate and the resulting real-world expense to you as an organizer.

In addition to simple event budgeting, you can also attach planned or actual expenses to event items:

  • Participant, an attendee or any other person participating in your event in one way or another
  • Rooms within one of the venues where your event is hosted
  • Program Item in your event calendar, for example, if there is a special fee for a party or a keynote presentation

Once you’re all done in your planning, use the built-in Event Income & Expense Report or export your actual data to Microsoft Excel or to your accounting system.
