Our site Lanyrd.com is shaping up quite nicely (in my opinion)—if you sign in with Twitter we’ll show you events your Twitter contacts are attending, tracking or speaking at. We also have a pretty powerful search interface, and you can browse the site by location and topic as well. Some examples:

http://lanyrd.com/places/london/

http://lanyrd.com/topics/genealogy/
