NEW YORK, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Professional networkers or anyone who is just looking for something to do now have a new tool that brings together several event directories into one simple search engine. 99events.com lets you search the major event sites such as Meetup.com, Eventbrite, Eventful and also events posted on Facebook.
The site is a free service and offers a variety of search filters. Users enter a keyword/topic and location and they can sort results by radius, relevance or date. Built and conceived at the incubator Headhunter Labs in midtown, the site is the brainchild of serial entrepreneur Chris Russell. "I built 99events for myself because I wanted to be a more efficient networker", he says. "But I quickly realized others would see the value of bringing all these events together in one search."
The site is a one-stop shop for many different types of searches, for example:
Startup in New York, New York - see all startup events happening in NYC
Dating in Washington DC - see all dating events in our nations capital
Music in Miami - various music events in Florida's top city
Children in Chicago - events for kids in the windy city
Career in Boston - discover career & job related activities in Beantown
Russell says the site will soon be adding more event sources as they scour the web for partners. A mobile friendly version is also in the works. Eventually the site will offer an ad-free premium version with other filters & features for a richer user experience.
Unlike existing event search engines, the goal of 99events is to quickly connect you with events you want and not clutter the results with ads and banners. It was built with the user in mind.
So whether you want to maximize your networking opportunities or just find something to do with your friends or family, 99events is here for you. There's an event for everyone. All you have to do is find it.
