#WeMakeEvents – Call for the event industry to stand as ONE on 30th September

To highlight that the live events sector urgently needs support from governments to survive the Covid-19 crisis, there is a day of global action on 30th September

What are we doing?

Across the world at 8pm UK time, event professionals from thousands of cities in
more than 20 countries are joining together to STAND AS ONE. We will be passing the
baton across the time zones initiating creative expressions that will see:

  • #LightItInRed buildings - venues and structures illuminated red with our signature
    expression of Red Alert.
  • Shine a Light - 60 strategically placed shafts of white light beamed up into the night
    sky each one signifying 10,000 potential job losses.
  • Inside Out - unique projections of what would have been taking place inside a venue, onto the outside of the empty venues reminding the press and the public of what
    they are missing and may never recover.
  • Creative & Art installations – illustrating the numbers of event professionals either
    already out of work or expecting to be soon.

These are just some of many creative events that will take place.

Why are we doing it?

  • To let the press and the public know what is happening and how this affects us all.
  • To continue to creatively express to Governments that we exist, we need help, and the huge contribution we make to our economy.
  • To empower event professionals around the world to collectively STAND AS ONE.
