Ticketmaster's API is built to sell tickets, not as a source of data

While Ticketmaster's API is designed for selling tickets, PredictHQ's API is a market-leading aggregation of accurate and intelligent event data that can be used to improve your planning, forecasting, and profitability.

How is our API different to Ticketmaster’s?

Ticketmaster's API is great for selling tickets, but it's not designed for forecasting or planning. PredictHQ's API is purpose-built for scale, pulling from hundreds of sources to give you a complete and accurate picture of what events could impact your business.

Predicted Event Spend

Go beyond the when and where with dynamic, event-based data

While ticketing APIs provide the date, time, and location of ticketed, attendance-based events – this leaves out a wide range of event types that may be impacting your business locations. From concerts, sports events, conferences, severe weather, airport delays, health warnings and much more, our data covers 19 unique event categories across 300,000 cities globally – so you can uncover your demand catalysts wherever your business is located.

Every month, PredictHQ captures, verifies, and enriches an average of 400,000 new events. We aggregate and standardize 200+ different event sources into a single API, including ticketing APIs to bring you the world’s only source of dynamic, reliable and contextual event data.

Gain deeper strategic insight and make data-driven decisions

Every event is enriched with geolocation, ranking, venue, start time and predicted end time, predicted attendance, predicted event spend, event category and subcategories, details of previous instances of the same event, and more. While a majority of data providers and ticketing APIs delete historical events, PredictHQ provides 5 years of historical data for the 22+ million events in our system.

Unlock deeper insights into your demand drivers to power informed decisions around staffing, inventory, marketing, and pricing at scale for each of your business locations.
