On Labor Day (intentional), a group of passionate Hospitality and Live Event professionals gathered on Copley Square to create an Empty Event; one of many taking place across the country this summer. The Empty Event was just that: a full scale event set-up where no one attended to demonstrate the devastation to our industry since March 2020.

On average our Industry contributes over $1trillion in economic output and employs almost 12million ppl (compared to 1.7 million in the auto industry). With 90% of 2020 Live Events being canceled and millions of industry folks out of work with no end in sight, this event was "to showcase and remind people that [an event] doesn't magically appear. That there are these extremely talented and highly skilled and trained professionals that build them," Nancy Shaffer, President of Live Events Coalition.

As an industry, we are looking for a seat at the table to make sure our One Voice is heard; we desperately need additional Federal support to ensure we are here to entertain, educate, and provide you all joy and happiness on the other side of this pandemic. From bus boys to bus drivers and auctioneers to audio engineers, they are all out of work. The Live Events industry is primarily made up of all small, independent businesses that don't have private equity backers, shares or deep corporate pockets; our lifeline is very short. We need more help by expanding the Payment Protection Program.

Tune In Live! Tonight - 9PM-Midnight - Red Alert Live Stream

Tonight, venues across the country will be covered in red light in an effort to encourage Congress to support our devastated industry by passing the Restart Act. Spearheaded by the #WeMakeEvents coalition, the campaign seeks to bring awareness and assistance to the millions of Americans who have lost income due to the ongoing pandemic.

Across New England there are dozens of companies and unions, hundreds of venues / locations and individuals working to make this effort a success. Across The United States, including Hawaii and parts of Canada, there are hundreds of companies and unions, over 1600 buildings / locations and over 5,000 individuals working on this grass roots effort that didn't exist 3 weeks ago.

From 9PM to 12AM tonight, venues nationwide will be lit red to highlight that the live events industry is on red alert and in dire need of help and support. Tune in to www.wemakeevents.org between 9PM and midnight tonight – see you there!
