A data model and format for collecting and distributing event information

EventsML-G2 is a standard for conveying event information in a news industry environment, but it may be used beyond this use case to cover other scenarios.

In particular EventsML-G2 may be used for:

  • Receiving all facts about an event from the event organiser
  • Publishing all facts about a specific event by a news provider
  • Publishing all or a subset of the facts about one or many events as event listings
  • Storing facts about notable events in media archives
  • Adding information regarding the coverage of an event by a news provider to the distributed event information, e.g. for daybooks or coverage agendas

EventsML-G2 is part of the NewsML-G2 specification, as it shares all core structures with the generic NewsML-G2 format.
