How Lanyrd does Geo

  1. We use MapBox maps around the site
  2. We suggest events based on the user’s Twitter and LinkedIn contacts, and their interests
  3. Each event has a page showing who is speaking and attending, the schedule and more
  4. Speakers get detailed profile pages
  5. Users can track topics inspecific geographical regions
  6. The site is built around a place hierarchy
  7. So you can see everything in a specific city, or everything in England
