MARKET

The online event marketing industry is fragmented, more than 5k+ global event listing websites handle over 4.4 billion events every year. All of them are competing for customer attention and each has their own specific event submission formats, making it difficult for organisers to effectively reach their target online audience. There’s a $10 Billion Market Opportunity out there and we in a prime position to capitalise on it.

  • $500m being spent on events and conference annually.
  • $58bn total addressable market p.a
  • $17bn being spent by English speakers on events market.
Bellwether: event marketing continues to top marketing growth

The Institute of Practitioners in Advertising’s (IPA) Bellwether report  reveals that event marketing budgets rose by 9.9% in the third quarter of 2016.

The IPA’s quarterly survey of marketing spend has now registered growth in event marketing spend for the 12th successive quarter. Events remain the strongest sector posting growth, followed by internet spend and direct marketing.

Marketing budgets themselves have been revised up in Q3 2016 to the highest rate in over two years with adspend forecast for 2016 revised up to 1.9% against a previous rate of -0.2%, as marketers remain cautious in the face of continued Brexit uncertainty.  more
