Which platform, WordPress or BuddyPress should I use for my event website?

I am not sure which platform, WordPress or Buddypress is best for my event website.

I plan to have someone to submit events for the public or for the club or members only. Should I install Buddypress as a platform or should I still use WordPress and use BuddyPress as a plugin? I am not so sure and your help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
