People are looking for something fun to do in their free time, and event coordinators are always looking for effective ways to let people know about the "things to do" they have on offer. The Events.com API provides the functionality required to connect the two—event-goers have a place where they can see exactly what's on, and those running the events have a place to not only promote their activities, but to manage and ticket them as well.

The Events.com platform is particularly suited to users who like to search for activities based on their specific preferences and within their own communities. This is achieved with social features such as being able to see which friends are participating in an event, allowing users to announce when they've signed up for an event, allowing users to virtually experience the event and interact with others who are attending, and so on. For administrators, the system offers handy features such as a mobile-friendly registration system, custom event branding and ticketing, merchandise offers, member discounts, business reports with financial insights, advertising and social tools, and customer communication tools.

The features offered by the Events.com API are user, search, event, stream, avatar and notification. The API is in beta, and developers interested in using it can find more information on the Events.com website.
