Basic analytics has been common in the event industry for some years, but more than ever is possible today. Instead of analyzing retrospectively, we can now use data to predict outcomes, such as ticket sales. Instead of reacting, we will be able to predict and prepare. Such advanced Analytics opens many doors in event production, marketing, and strategy. We are able to be more efficient, more effective, and more certain - taking events to the next level.

Speakers

  • Hung Dang

    Hung Dang Mitra-Intelligence (DE)

    Coming from a highly statistical background and even graduating as valedictorian from an Ivy League University, Hung did not pursue a common path afterwards. Instead, he followed his passion and founded an event company with his friends that is currently active in over 40 different cities and 10 countries. Having been hands-on for over two years, Hung quickly returned to his roots and started using complex statistics to find new profit opportunities for his events. Ever since, Hung and his colleague founded Mitra-Intelligence and have gathered and analysed data from some of the biggest festivals in the world.

    The resulting massive amount of data Mitra-Intelligence does not lie - traditional marketing is dead while peer-to-peer sales and marketing have become the gold standard. Ever since, Hung and his colleagues are on a quest to create the most effective peer-to-peer program for the event industry by exploiting the full power of data.

  • Alexander Misera
