Zvents goal is to be the best local event search on the Web, and to enable brand-new kinds of extended conversations about local events and things to do. Here’s how we do that: Initially for the Bay Area, and soon for other U.S. metros, we offer more events than anyone else. New media, old media, we don’t care. You’ll find more here than anywhere. The best search tools for events. We’re really proud of our what-when-where search. Try to stump it, and let us know if you do. Want to know about football games next weekend? Type in “football" and “next weekend". Want to do something with your kids next Thursday? Try “Children" and “Next Thursday". Sure, date math and geospatial data are hard. Our job is to make it easy for you. The best results views for events. We support text lists, maps, and calendars including 1,3,7, and 30-day versions, all dynamic, and all interchangeable for a given search. Ever wondered why finding something to do was so hard? Perhaps it’s because no one else has ever done it this way before. The best event web service for developers. We support three web service APIs with lots of functionality – REST, SOAP, and XML-RPC. We’ll be adding more functionality soon. We offer extensive RSS support and feeds from all different nooks and crannies of the site. We support iCal. Use our “Zbutton" to point to individual events in our database. Use our slick embeddable iFrame calendar to show off your personal schedule, your group’s schedule, or the calendar of a venue on your blog. Either takes just one minute and is as simple as cutting and pasting a single line of code into your site. Personal calendar? Check. Saved searches? Check. View your friends’ calendars? Check. View group calendars? Check. Intermix and overlay all of these in one place? Sure. Forward to friends? No problem. Managing the process of deciding whether to do something has never been so easy.
