An add-on to integrate with Mailchimp would be nice. I would like to automate with Mailchimp a weekly email reminding users of the weeks upcoming events. This would be a nature extension of any calendar plugin it would seem, but I have yet to find that integration.
This feature is already nicely handled by the third party paid addon: Event Calendar Newsletter Pro. It can directly send out email campaigns showcasing upcoming events, or be integrated into a recurring MailChimp one using MailChimp’s RSS campaigns. A great solution all-in-all.

Using Mailpoet we can drag events into a newsletter, but the date and time do not come across. It would be so nice if they did! What's the use of news of an event that doesn't have the date and time?!

Would love to automatically connect event attendees with MailChimp, so that when they join the event list in MailChimp that could trigger an automation flow.
E.g. for "thanks for signing up", "here's what you need to bring" and "don't forget" type emails.

Develop an integrated newsletter add-on, this will allow to promote single or multiple events using existing contact lists.

That's a totally cool idea. I wonder in the meantime if you could use something like this - http://mailchimp.com/features/rss-to-email/
