Are you ahead or behind the curve when it comes to adopting event technology? What talent are #eventprofs looking to hire in 2017? How much do others spend on hiring venues, event promotion or content? What trends are other organisers paying the most attention to this year? These are just some of the questions answered in this year’s 3rd annual Pulse Report, which reveals all the key event industry statistics, benchmarks, opportunities, challenges and trends you need to know. Based on a survey of 800 event organisers – of all shapes and sizes from across the UK –  Eventbrite have taken the pulse of the industry, and made the full 44 page report available to you. It really does make for interesting reading and covers everything from spend at venues to social media, and is especially interesting about the effects of brexit on our business.

Rachel Parker, Association of Event Venues (AEV) director said “The Pulse Report is a comprehensive piece of research that sheds important light on the expectations and needs of event professionals and event organisers in particular. It concurs with much of what our member venues have experienced, especially the demand for quicker venue response times – an issue already recognised as a priority amongst many AEV members.” “The detail and breadth of the report will enable our members to draw useful inferences, and also highlights some interesting trends in budgets and spending patterns. This research will undoubtedly help organisers and venues work together more efficiently to deliver exhibitions, conferences and other events on tight budgets, without needing to compromise their ambition.”
