Zvents is a leading producer of local entertainment guides online, helping more than 12 million monthly users find fun and interesting things to do in their local area, and helping thousands of event advertisers increase attendance at their events.
More than 15,000 event advertisers work with Zvents every month to promote a wide range of local events and activities, including live music, performing arts, sporting events and community activities.
The company was founded in March 2005 to help people discover events in the Bay Area, but has since expanded to include information about events across most cities in the US, as well as events in the UK, Canada and Ireland. The Zvents Network includes more than 290 media sites, including leading local sites like SFGate.com, the San Jose Mercury News, Boston Globe, Denver Post, Dallas Morning News as well as large national partners like Bing, MSN.com and YP.com.
Key differentiators for the business are their large network of media partners, a unique and powerful time-based local search technology, and a vibrant community of content contributors across all markets and event categories.
Traffic from the Zvents Media Network has nearly doubled in the last 12 months according to Quantcast http://www.quantcast.com/p-54UqpxMM201CU.
