Cultural Facility Benchmarking

Our traditional IAMFA Benchmarking program has been ongoing since 2001.  Participants have typically included cultural facilities with more than 50,000 gross square feet or 5,000 gross square meters and includes a wide range of facility-related data and metrics.

This program includes all of the data, reporting, and networking of our Cultural Institution Facility Benchmarking programs, with self-service data entry to keep it economical.
