Live Events Coalition – Help Us Safely Return to Putting on Live Events and Gatherings

July 29, 2020

FIVE MONTHS AGO, COVID-19 BROUGHT THE LIVE EVENTS INDUSTRY TO AN IMMEDIATE HALT.

This work stoppage has put twelve million planners, designers, fabricators, upholsterers, cleaners, truck drivers, and dispatchers out of work.

With our livelihoods at stake, we are more than ready to get back to work, but until we can safely do so, the future of events remains uncertain. Right now we are asking you to join us in advocating on behalf of the Live Events Coalition for legislative support.

We are joining our allies on social media in an effort to #SaveEvents – we invite you to contact your senators and representatives for inclusion in the next round of stimulus funding. Our livelihoods depend on it.

To learn more about how you can help, visit the Live Events Coalition and follow the hashtag #WishIWasThere to see how our industry is trying to get back on its feet.
