Business Events Data Programme

Fresh Info has been appointed by BEIA and and Regional Convention Bureaux to provide a regular measure of business event activity in New Zealand.  This involves collecting data from business event venues and producing regional and national statistics that everyone can benefit from. 

Why should you participate in the Business Events Data Programme?

It is FREE

You will receive FREE access to confidential quarterly market share reports as well as regional and national business events statistics. Good quality data enables better advocacy and representation for the business events sector.

What do you need to do?

Fresh Info have sent BEIA Member Venues an email on our behalf.  Its purpose is to register for the data project.  Once this has been completed, you will be asked to submit monthly data for business events you host either through a short online form or by uploading a CSV/Excel file from your booking system.  
Your data will always remain strictly confidential.

How will the data be used?

Your data will be combined with data from other venues to estimate the size of the business events market, and your share of that market.

If you have any questions regarding this programme, please email Param Kaur, Research Manager at Fresh Info.
