2020 Special Event Permitting Survey Infographic

News

April 2, 2020

In late 2019 and early 2020, a survey was sent to Event Offices and other departments that manage special event permitting.  We believe it to be the first survey of its kind – with the goal of collecting information about special event permitting practices at municipalities throughout North America. Staff from municipalities at 20 different states and provinces provided responses to the 19 question survey and are summarized in the infographic below. This infographic can also be downloaded in pdf format.

The questions in this survey do not consider the direct impact of COVID-19 but we will use the results from this and future surveys to track the impact of the pandemic on North American Event Offices.

The full report contains additional analysis and answers to all survey questions. To download the full report, enter your email and name (optional) below.
