Featured Projects

See below for some examples of our recent research projects


Measuring the Gold Coast Night Time Economy

This project, for the City of Gold Coast Council, identified twelve distinct night time economy (NTE) precincts through geospatial analysis of economic, crime and live music data. We reviewed the interrelationship between this data and local and state policies, plans, investments, and news stories to suggest evidence based considerations. 


CBCity’s NTE and opening hours analysis

We were commissioned by  Canterbury Bankstown Council (CBCity) to support their newly published NTE Action Plan by determining the sub- LGA economic impact of their NTE. This was complemented by mapping NTE business clusters and their opening hours to determine the area’s “night time intensity” rating. 


Measuring the Australian Night Time Economy

The Ingenium team developed the original methodology for measuring Australia’s NTE over ten years ago and have been involved in annual iterations since its inception. These studies for the Council of Capital City Lord Mayors provide consistent insights about the size of sector for Australia, the states, territories and 88 of the most populous LGAs.
