COVID-19 Dashboard to find best locations for live events

Due to the Corona pandemic, live events almost died out completely. However, as the number of cases decreases and the vaccine becomes more widespread, the number of live events will increase again. However, it is not immediately clear in which regions and especially in which cities live events will be possible. This information is highly important for an internationally active gaming company, as it has frequently hosted live events for the community in the past. In order to be able to plan for the future, the company commissioned Statista to design a dashboard based on real-time data that lists the most suitable locations for live events and compares them with each other.

Which cities/regions can host live events in the future even with the current Corona restrictions?

Our Solution

To evaluate and compare the most suitable venues for live events, Statista Q has created an exclusive dashboard for the client. The dashboard is interactive and based on real-time data. In the first step, a variety of different data was researched for the most relevant cities, in addition to the most up-to-date Corona case numbers. The data was both quantitative and qualitative. In the second step, a scoring model was developed based on the data to perform a preliminary assessment of the cities’ suitability. The scoring model and the initial city ranking were then discussed and adjusted with the client in the form of a workshop. After the workshop, all data was transferred to the dashboard, which is continuously updated.

  • Interactive web-based dashboard with real-time data
  • Valide scoring model to pre-select the most important cities
  • Ongoing updates as well as discussion of the results and their impact on the customer via workshops
Customer Results

With the dashboard, the customer can quickly and easily compare those locations and determine which ones can host live events for the community without violating pandemic restrictions. The dashboard is web-based, so it can be accessed anywhere, and anytime. This particularly simplifies the sharing of the content for our client and thus makes it easier for them to discuss the issue with their stakeholders.
