The events sector urgently needs more support to survive the Covid-19 crisis. On 11th August the industry came together to peacefully request more support from the government.
Lit in red, the Southampton O2 Guildhall was a display of support for colleagues in the event industry within our great city. A city which hosts many major business conferences, expo’s and live events. News from the PM today is that the industry, set to re-open on 1st October will now play a part in pilot events before the final go ahead is given.
Live events around the world have been devastated, from major festivals and landmark theatres, to grassroots venues and business events. Without major immediate support from government, the entire supply chain is at risk of collapse.
On the 11th August Industry voices were strengthened through the power of social media, on this subject #WeMakeEvents #LightItRed https://twitter.com/hashtag/LightItRed
