Eventbrite polled 1,200 event creators on its platform on industry trends and their experiences managing events in 2018. The respondents were primarily from small organizations that run six or more events annually aimed at education or community building.

While half of those polled said they expect their budget for 2019 to remain the same as the previous year, 49 percent also said they are expecting to be responsible for holding more events than in 2018. Meanwhile, 41 percent said they expect spending on marketing and promotion to increase for their events.
