Visitors can also use the CES app to find the top 100 hotspots outside the CES event with the distance of each hotspot calculated relative to the CES venue. Mr David So further highlighted, "With the third social network, it recommends attendees the places to visit in Las Vegas after the CES event through location-based social media".

Twalky is a web-based platform that enables users to build social networks/applications with real-time streams of anything (eg. places, events, people, products etc).
Applications built on Twalky platform are able to share their content amongst each other by connecting selective (or all) content from a network to another network. For example, TwalkyEvents is an iphone application based on Twalky using event streams and LeWeb2009 is a social network created by another Twalky user. Event streams from LeWeb2009 can be connected to TwalkyEvents network so that visitors of TwalkyEvents app are able to write and read on the LeWeb events.

TwalkyEvents enables your mobile phone to become a navigation tool and communication channel (like a "walkie a talkie") for events and its activities. The application is built on Twalky, a web-based platform where users can create applications with real-time streams of anything.
Based on event streams, you can record your activities and save photos of events that you want to share with friends or want for personal record keeping. TwalkyEvents enables you to explore hot events relative to your current location using GPS technology or keyword search. You can also use it to find your friends' whereabouts.
Using TwalkyEvents, you now have total control over how you want to spend your time at an event because it provides you the critical information of who, what, when, where, and why of all the activities in real time. Please visit the TwalkyEvents network in www.twalky.com for more information.
