Some business sectors find the public calendar option really useful for sharing event or calendar information.
A published calendar can be used by a wide range of businesses for example it may be a membership organisation publishing courses or training events, a school, community or sports group publishing activities or sporting events or simply a business showing the availability of a meeting or treatment room.
When you publish the calendar it will create a url link and this link can be published on your website or marketing collateral to inform members, colleagues or those you wish to give access to the public calendar, so that it can be found easily on the web by those you share the link with.
