📊 2024 Event Promotion Trends Report — Get Your Questions Answered

This year’s Event Promotion Trends Report is going to be much bigger than last year’s report.

We had a lot of valuable insights form that report that you can read all about here (you don’t even have to give us your email).

THIS YEAR we’re going to be inviting 10x the number of event organizers and promoters to respond to the survey. We’ll also have an additional 18,000+ event promotions to analyze.

Last year's questions included things like:

  • Has attendance gone up or down?

  • Which ticketing company do you use?

  • What other software tools do you use for marketing?

  • Do you host hybrid events or have you thought about hosting Hybrid events?

  • What promotion methods did you use in 2022 for your events?

  • Which methods do you plan to use more of in 2023?

  • What would you say was your highest performing promotion channel in terms of total tickets sold?

  • What would you say was your highest performing promotion channel in terms of return on investment?

  • Do you track the results of your marketing campaigns?

  • How do you feel about competition in your market and industry?
