We operate sites across the country (US) for others to post their events. We do host our own. Nor do we need event reminders or emails. Our previous provider discontinued (Thyme).
I did not see these features specifically mentioned. Can you tell me if they are covered with your calendar?
-Registration for the person adding the event
Event creation permission is either on a user type basis or user specific. for the user specific permissions you can control the specific categories/calendars that they can post into. you can also decide if they can create/publish/re-edit/edit-all/publish-all/delete-all events.
So permission is quite fine grained.
There is a club addon that can auto create registered users with a standard set of permissions.
-The ability to change only one event in a recurring schedule
This can be done in the frontend or backend - changing dates/times/descriptions etc. is all possible as it removing specific repetitions.
-A copy feature for repeating events across different local calendars for ease of entering in several events by one host.
If by calendars you mean menu items displaying a set of events then in JEvents you can control which categories and 'calendars' (an internal collection of events quite distinct from frontend menu items) are displayed so the same event can appear on several menu items with out the need to copy it.
There is also an event tagging club addon which would allow you to further refine which events are shown on which page.
-The ability for the moderator to easily change calendars in case a listing got posted on Washington DC and it was meant for Washington State.
Authorised event editors change change categories and calendars for an event.
-All events are held for approval...(Very important...many events entered do not meet our criteria).
All based on the permissions you assign - so some users can be blocked and others allowed to self-publish.
-Notification to the appropriate moderator that a new event submission is awaiting their approval - and a copy to admin. Approval notification to host
Standard features - in your case the moderator would be a 'category administrator' responsible for approving events in a specified cateogry(ies).
-Editing capabilities for the event host (or whoever originally posted the event)
Subject to the permission settings you choose - yes.
-The host registrations should be exportable into a CRM system
Events can be exported in iCal format and imported into many calendaring systems.
