Pop-Up Event Use Case – Turin Art Fairs

Project Goal

Turin, Italy, November 2018: analyse the crowd’s movement and behaviour during the Art Fairs in November 2018, as part of the EU ROCK Cultural Heritage project, with a special focus on the mobility and returning visitors.


Key findings

Three LBASense Crowd Analytics sensors were deployed onsite, detecting passively anonymous mobile phone signals, allowing to understand the general mobility trend of the crowd among fairs in the city.

Turin Art Fairs Crowds' Mobility Analysis

Crowd Analytics data show that the most popular mobility trend in the city during the Fiere dell’Arte Torino days was from the Fair 3 area to the Fair 2 region.

In addition to the mobility analysis, LBASense sensors have detected the ratio of new versus returning visitors during the Festival.

Turin Art Fairs Returning versus New Visitors Comparative Analysis

Results from the Returning visitors’ analysis show that the Fair 2 area attracted more returning visitors on Sunday than the other areas of the city, meaning either that this zone is more popular on Sundays or that visitors were interested in re-visiting fairs in this zone in particular.

Crowd Analytics such as footfall, mobility, returning visitors count, can be very useful for security monitoring during very large events and city planning (transportation) during festivals and free outdoor events. They also allow measuring the success of a particular marketing campaign, thanks to the crowd’s activity analysis.
