The Special Events category drew attendance of 7,960 and generated revenue of $173,053. This is the smallest category in the data set, accounting for only 0.8% of industry revenue and 1.1% of industry attendance. Its proportion of unpaid tickets is also very high, at 31.2%. This category is particularly variable as it is highly dependent on whether performances take place that cannot be classified into other categories.
Only 133 performances were staged in the Special Events category. Each performance attracted average attendance of 60 and average revenue of $1,301, making this category one of the poorest performing categories in the industry on these measures.
Metropolitan and regional venues accounted for the majority of revenue and attendance in this category. Key Organisations also staged some events in this category, including Sea Inside at the Blue Room Theatre and SONG, presented by Ranters Theatre.
