A multi-purpose venue is an outlet that offers a variety of amenities or occasion, as well as ticketless events, often held in open air. Venues that offer a variety of amenities or occasions and can flex their offer across dayparts provide consumers with an appealing all-under-one-roof hospitality experience.
But who exactly are these multi-purpose site guests, and what do they want? Here are just five of the top takeaways from the new Pulse Report.
1 More than half of consumers have visited a multi-purpose venue
The Consumer Pulse survey shows just over half (52%) of consumers have visited a multi-purpose venue before, while three in ten (30%) are very or somewhat likely to use one in the next few months. Only 14% are very unlikely to do so.
2 Gen Z are particularly engaged
Consumers in the Gen Z age group are heavy users of these types of venues. Two in three (66%) have visited one before—14 percentage points more than the average among all consumers. This suggests that use of multi-purpose sites will continue to grow.
3 Guests are typically urban and affluent
Three in five (61%) users of multi-purpose venues live in city or town centres—ten percentage points more than the number who have not been to one. Users have an average household income of €49,304—more than €3,000 more than non-users—and well over half (57%) visit the on Premise at least weekly.
4 Guests want fun, good vibes and new experiences
Asked about their reasons for visiting a multi-purpose venue, 34% told the Consumer Pulse survey that they go because it’s fun. Other popular factors include the overall vibe / atmosphere (29%) and a desire to try something new (23%).
5 Convenience is key
The list of reasons why people don’t visit multi-purpose venues is topped by a lack of such venues nearby (32%). Other consumers can be put off by loud noise (26%), expense (19%) and busy spaces (16%).
