BE Data & Industry Statistics

Business Events Data Programme

Business Events Industry Aotearoa (BEIA) and RTONZ appointed Fresh Info 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?

Each quarter you will receive FREE access to confidential 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?

We appreciate your support in submitting monthly data for the business events you host. Simply complete the short online form or upload a CSV/Excel file from your booking system.

Important to note that 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 Michelle Bird, Data Programme Manager at BEIA.
