It’s here – our new benchmarking dashboard!

  |   News

We promised an exciting 2019 and we plan to deliver starting with the release of our Interactive Benchmarking Dashboard.

Thanks to the support of CircuitWest, PAC Australia is pleased to present our benchmarking data in a new online format. This new platform means you can search the data for similar centres and compare standards such as staffing levels, salaries, turnover, attendance, levels of entrepreneurial activity etc.

If you participated in our 2017 biennial survey you can access the interactive dashboard free of charge – you will receive an email with the relevant details shortly.

If you weren’t one of the participating members but would like to start benchmarking your organisation please contact to purchase the 2017 dataset. 

If you missed the boat this time around don’t fret… it is coming back around this year!

The 2019 surveys will be sent in the coming months – we strongly encourage all venue members to participate in the surveys to ensure the continued value and richness of the data. And of course, participation means that you’ll receive the reports and the dashboard free of charge!
