Events are getting more accessible on Google! Earlier this month, Google rolled out their latest feature, event search, which makes it easier to find events around you. In the Google search app, event search takes over when Google detects that you are looking for an event.
Google’s event search works by searching “events near me” or “upcoming events in my area,” you then have the option to sort results based on date, or day. Results also include more detailed information such as links to ticket purchase, how to attend or supporting links.

WHERE GOOGLE EVENT SEARCH IS CURRENTLY WORKING
Currently, the Google tool displays results from: Meetup, Yext, Vividseats, Eventbrite, Ticketmaster, SeatGeek, Jambase, LiveNation, Bookmyshow.com, StubHub, Bandsintown, Eventful, along with a few others. Google continues to add support from other ticket venues as the search feature evolves. Read more about the new search feature here.
WHY YOU SHOULD USE GOOGLE EVENT SEARCH
People looking to attend an event should use Google event search to quickly and efficiently pull up all events happening in their area. It will be a one stop shop to find events in business, find events for your own personal business development, or to search events on google to see what is happening in the industry near you.
The host of the event should use the Google search tool to find and research competitors who are having events in the area and to engage their own events on google for a greater attendee reach.
