We know you are missing live events. We are too.
But there is a group of people that misses them more.
And they are the people that work at the events.
The Live Events Industry – composed of more than 12 million workers and contributing roughly $1 trillion to the US economy – has been completely devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic, due to the necessary shutdown of operations.
Simply put, they need additional relief. With expected industry revenue loss between 60% to 80%, many businesses are facing permanent closure, and they’ve furloughed on average 85% of their workforce.
Unfortunately, their plight goes even deeper than other hard-hit industries. No to-go orders. No curbside pickups. No mail-order. And they’re not just out of work for a few weeks… the majority of this country’s Live Events Businesses have seen 90% or higher cancellation of bookings for March through September 2020.
