Each year, cities worldwide host an array of special events, from cultural festivals and art exhibitions to sports competitions and international trade shows. Knowing about these events in advance is not just beneficial; it's essential for businesses looking to capitalize on the unique opportunities they present.

Demand patterns have changed significantly over the past few years, making it significantly harder to track patterns of events in cities around the world. How they change will be highly specific to each country, state, and city.
