API for Historical Events

Better predict the future, by understanding the past with PredictHQ’s enriched and ranked Historical Events

Events API for Historical Events

Multiple data streams in just one API

Gain access to the most accurate historical event data for thousands of locations worldwide so you can train your models and predict what impacts your business the most. Whether it's a sports game, conference, holiday or severe flood, knowing which events impacted your demand previously enables you to unlock efficiencies and profits hiding in plain sight.

You’d think finding information about events that happened in the past would be as simple as doing a quick search online, right? Well, wrong, as it happens. It’s actually really difficult to get historical data about real-world events that might have impacted your business. And we thought that was odd.

That’s where PredictHQ comes in. Put simply, PredictHQ gives businesses the tools they need to understand the past to predict the future. Our data processing pipeline aggregates local, national and international scheduled and unscheduled events into one handy place, including events that have happened in the past, events happening right now, and events scheduled for the future. When we say ‘events’ we mean real-world events like concerts, sporting fixtures, expos, conferences and school holidays, along with events that could happen without much warning, like severe weather, airport delays, natural disasters or even terror.

Ranked Events

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

PredictHQ’s API gives you access to millions of unscheduled and scheduled events that have happened, are happening or will happen, across 18 categories - and counting. Our smart in-house 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. If your sales went through the roof (or through the floor) last May, but you’re not sure why, use PredictHQ to go back in time and discover the local, national, even global events that occurred then. Use that historical data and our intuitive ranking algorithm to then analyze the impact those events had on your bottom line. Perhaps it was a recurring conference, a major sports game or airport delays that saw more people through your doors. Maybe it was a hurricane or school holidays that contributed to a drop in sales. Whatever it was, it could occur again in the future. PredictHQ uses the power of the past to help you forecast future demand, and make the most of more - or fewer - customers.

Making Flat Event Data Intelligent

It’s not easy finding historical data about past events. Until now, that is. PredictHQ pulls countless data streams and third party APIs into one smart information source (we manually compile data when we have to too), so all the scheduled and unscheduled events that could impact your industry can be found in one handy place. We make it really easy to find the data you need. Discover events that are relevant to you by searching within a geographical radius, using IATA codes or geographical place names. You can query multiple categories and locations simultaneously and get JSON responses. Integrating our data with any platform is simple thanks to our easy-to-use API. We also have Python and JavaScript SDKs available, and we use the OAuth 2.0 standard for authentication with access tokens required to grant application access to the tools available in the API. Your developers won’t need to spend precious time capturing, cleaning and maintaining disparate data sources, reducing your operational costs in the process, plus our API is versioned for easier maintenance. Make the past work for your future, with PredictHQ.
