Help us advocate for the protection of the events industry

While our immediate concern is to mitigate the spread and impact of COVID-19 by offering our industry's considerable expertise to aid the recovery—supporting everything from building ventilators and PPE, to setting up temporary medical and testing facilities—we recognize the need to mobilize our resources now to ensure local, state, and federal legislators support policies that will accelerate recovery for the events industry workers and businesses, when the time is right to consider such legislation.

Our Mission

Go LIVE Together has assembled leaders from across the diverse and vibrant live events ecosystem to drive local, state, and federal legislative actions that will not only be critical to our ability to put millions of people back to work, but also for our country’s economic recovery.

Every events industry recovery dollar will lead to incremental spending on travel, hotels, and restaurants, supporting Main Street merchants decimated by COVID-19. Live events industry legislative relief will serve as its own “stimulus package” because funds will be used to rekindle both an important economic sector and many connected companies. Our industry was producing tens of thousands of events per year before COVID-19, so the economic impact of live events cannot be overstated.

We hope you will join our efforts in sharing what we all already know to be true—nothing in the world will ever replace the power and need for live events.

Let’s Go LIVE Together!
