PredictHQ aggregates events from hundreds of sources to identify more than 20 million events worldwide. We then quantify the impact of each event with our unique ranking technologies. Here are our 16 (and counting) categories.
Attendance is only one factor in predicting impact
Because a major sports game has a different kind of impact on business compared to say, a community fun run, PredictHQ has unique ranking models custom-built for each category. These factor in attendance and location of the event, time of year and transport options, as well as many other considerations.
Games, matches, tournaments, marathons and more - sports events are often major drivers of demand. We cover all sports and have built tailored systems for verifying and enriching each sport type.
From a hundred people to more than 100,000 - conferences are major drivers of people movement. They can be particularly tricky to track because many change cities or countries each time.
Major events for educating the public or an industry. While many are international, we also cover national and state trade shows. Similar to conferences, these are hard to track as they often change location each time.
Anything from massive shows through to gigs with only a handful of people. This excludes music festivals which are covered by the festival category.
Multi-day, multi-performer events. We cover small local festivals all the way up to your major events of hundreds of thousands of people in remote locations. This category can also include large state fairs.
Plays, art exhibitions, dance performances and other creative events. Often smaller than concerts and sport games, these shouldn’t be ignored as they are often key contributors to perfect storms of demand.
Fetes, fun runs, farmers markets and many other kinds of events. This category includes a wide range of events. Similar to performing arts, these often play key roles in high-impact clusters of events.
Public holidays differ by country, state and even city. Staying on top of all of them is challenging but essential as they have significant demand impact.
Dates differ slightly in different states and cities, as well as globally. These can have massive influence on demand and are all ranked as major impact.
Religious events can transform demand in whole regions significantly. They are hard to track thoroughly given the multitude of religions and sects.
Less common but high impact, elections, rallies and key events such as inaugurations, need to be factored into plans.
Simple but important. We track daylight savings globally.
