Use cases for IVES

The following use cases demonstrate how IVES can be used by different stakeholders: venue managers, promoters, data publishers or listings services, and researchers.

I run a venue, why should I use IVES?

IVES allows you to communicate your event listings in a single unambiguous XML data format.

A single IVES document can be sent to several IVES-compliant events listing services. This removes the need to create bespoke data feeds for each service you supply.

To create an IVES document you will need to know your Venue ID.
