With Pods you can easily create your own content types (e.g. Events) with as many fields as you want (e.g. Title, Date, Time, Location, Cost.) Create and manage content in one spot (e.g. event "WordPress Webinar") and display it in many places (home page, event detail page, calendar page.)
Better yet, Pods powers related content and the new interface in 2.0 makes it easy to create a template that will do things like "display all Upcoming Events related to this Product". Pods is the first plugin I install on every project.
