Since the unprecedented worldwide pandemic, concerts, sporting events, trade shows, conferences, theatrical productions, and countless other events have been cancelled by the thousands. Layoffs have begun and are staggering. Our industry is unique in needing help. Live events are on the front line of social distancing, and will likely be the last to return to normal. Those industries that benefit from live events, hotels, airlines, hospitality, will not return to normal until we do.

  • The Coalition has two immediate goals: Leverage the power of our network to provide care, support and resources for the community that makes up the live events industry. Second, to call attention to the catastrophic effects of Covid-19 on the business of live events; and ensure that we’re included in the ongoing National conversation and supplemental Federal relief aid packages.
  • We are committed to raising the collective voice of the Live Events Coalition to create awareness of the severe economic impact and job loss that we are suffering from as a result a complete shutdown of live events. The work stoppage within the industry that produces them has created a ripple effect far greater than anyone has acknowledged, and it is threatening a significant portion of the U.S. economy.
  • We are committed to working with our political leaders and other industry organizations to bring immediate relief to companies of all size, independent contractors and freelance workers. This relief must go beyond the generalized benefits of the stimulus packages to date to meet the varied and complex needs of the entire live events industry.
  • We are committed to addressing the long-term impact of Covid-19 on the live events industry. We must ensure that future aid packages address our ability to stabilize our industry; and further protect our people and businesses until revenues return to normal.
