I will forward your comment to our developer team and they’ll surely receive it. If it is possible they will add this feature in the upcoming updates of the Plugin.
is it possible to display the organizers in the main content area under the event description? it is such a beautiful plugin, the organizer + description and 2nd organizer makes the sidebar so much longer than the content area, it looks unprofessional.
