Events API for Forecasting Event Impact

Access PredictHQ’s intelligent event data to scale the Forecasting Event Impact

API for Forecasting Event Impact

Multiple data streams in just one API

When you want to know what the weather’s going to be like this weekend because you’re planning a picnic and you don’t like wet sandwiches, you figure that because it rained two days ago it’s definitely not going to rain again for another 11 days so you forego the umbrellas and hope for the best. Right? Wrong. You turn on the TV or radio, or open up Google to find a reliable weather forecast that’ll save you a heap of heartache and prevent soggy sammies.

PredictHQ is much the same when it comes to event visibility. Our API helps you find past, present and future events, then gives you the intel you need to make great business decisions based on those events. We collate and aggregate local, national and international events into one handy place, so you know what, when and where real world events are happening. We have all the details for millions of scheduled events like school holidays, public holidays, concerts, sporting fixtures and conferences, right through to unscheduled events like natural disasters, airport delays, even terror events, all in a view that works for you. From there, our intuitive ranking algorithm tells you what events are more likely to impact your business compared to others, so you can see at a glance which ones you need to pay special attention to and discover any patterns and trends. This all adds up to the unique power of prediction that lets you make well-informed business decisions based on data, not guesswork.

Ranked Events

Not sure what events matter most? Don’t worry - we’ve sorted them for you

Just like a weather forecast can give you specific details about the elements at your place as well as further afield, PredictHQ’s API gives you access to millions of local, national and international unscheduled and scheduled events across 18 categories - and counting. Our smart inhouse ranking algorithm assigns a numerical rank to every piece of event data we store, so you can filter from major to minor events and see at a glance which ones you should pay special attention to. And the possibilities of what you can do with our data are endless. Forecast the impact events could have on your business, then make more hotel rooms or seats on flights available, adjust your pricing strategy, create marketing campaigns and packages, or roster on more staff. Use our API to return events instantly via live requests forwarded to our server, or download and store your own local copy to use in data modelling and analysis, or enrich your own dataset to produce and sell your own derivative products.
