Observances API

Access global observances and many more events using PredictHQ’s API

Global Observances & Much More, All in One Place

Multiple data streams in just one API

If you’re sick of forgetting when National Tartan Day is (6th April in case you were curious), there’s still time to mark this and other dates in your calendar thanks to PredictHQ’s global observances API. PredictHQ’s easy-to-use but oh-so-intelligent API gives you the power to predict what scheduled and unscheduled global events might impact your business, including marketing holiday dates like Valentine’s Day. We aggregate and maintain hundreds of different sources so you can spend more time on building your product. That can only be good news for your calendar which will now always be up-to-date with celebration dates or religious holidays that have the potential to impact your business, regardless of time and date. Use our API to return details about thousands of events that could impact your business, or download and store your own local copy of events, so you can use them for data modeling and analysis.

Ranked Observances

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

Knowing what observances and memorial dates are happening when is smart, regardless of what industry you work in. PredictHQ’s intuitive and easy-to-use API keeps you informed in advance about observances that could impact your business’ bottom line - and more importantly could help you stay ahead of your competition. Our RESTful API doesn’t dump a whole pile of useless data on your virtual doorstep though. Our ranking algorithm assigns a numerical rank to every single event, so you can filter from major to minor events and see at a glance what observances and other events need special attention before they actually happen.

It doesn’t stop there. PredictHQ’s API connects you with millions of other local, national and international scheduled and unscheduled events too, so the decision makers and developers in your business can create their own applications that give them plenty of warning to make more rooms, rental vehicles or tables available, adjust pricing for flights, or roster on more staff for busy weekends. Lookup events and get JSON responses. Integrate our data with any platform - and to make integrations even easier PredictHQ currently has Python and JavaScript SDKs available. We use the OAuth 2.0 standard for authentication, and access tokens are required to grant application access to the tools available on the API. Developers won’t need to spend precious time capturing, cleaning and maintaining disparate data sources. Plus, our API is versioned for easier maintenance. PredictHQ does all the heavy lifting for them so they can focus on their core platform.

Making Flat Event Data Intelligent

One observance is not like the other

A quick online search tells you that there are thousands upon thousands of observances and novelty holidays celebrated globally every year. But no one’s got time to filter through them all and decide how important they are or if they’re likely to impact your business’ profitability. PredictHQ takes the hassle out of figuring out what global observances are happening and how important they are by pulling hundreds of data streams and third party APIs across more than 18 categories (and counting) into one intuitive information source. When we need to, we’re more than happy to roll our sleeves up and manually collate and aggregate that data too, so you don’t have.

Our information isn’t merely flat data though. We pride ourselves on efficient event visibility, not just event face value. Every time you make an API request to find events happening near your business, we link complementary event attributes to every one of the local, national and international events we store which helps you to make grounded business decisions built on solid facts, not mere intuition. You can even do nifty things like use IATA codes to search for events, search within a geographical radius, or query multiple locations and categories at the same time. Yep, that’s smart.

You can’t prepare for what you don’t see coming
