Attendio tries event search(seriously)

Ah! Local search, location based search, and all those life and time savers. Attendio too wants to join that league with its local events search engine. You can search for – Music, family, Perf Arts, Fashion, Film, Technology, Public Affairs – all in one place(and only for Bay Area currently). Users get to add events, reviews and recommendations while Attendio provides VIP “Recommenders” for insider’s view on all the “hot” events, which sounds more like MySpace beginnings. They also number of integrations to deliver event information to calendars(GCal, iCal, …..), and email. On mobile you text Attendio your interests and zip code, and they come back with the highest ranked event matching your interest.

Anyway, we will soon know whether Attendio is just another search engine to forget or can rise above that. What do we already have in the market? – Zvents, Eventful, Upcoming, to name a few.
