#RedAlertRESTART Shines Red for Live Events Industry

Red Alert RESTART Image

On Tuesday, September 1st, Staging Concepts’ exterior was lit up in red to show support for the live events industry. We all know that COVID-19 has had a profound impact on businesses around the world, and primarily live events which have essentially been shut down since March. And now, unfortunately the live events industry is on red alert for survival due to the global pandemic.

To show support of this industry and the national movement organized by #WeMakeEvents, #RedAlertRESTART, and #ExtendPUA we joined more than 1,500 businesses around the nation by lighting our building’s logo in red Tuesday evening. The goal of the movement is to raise public awareness and urge the US Congress to pass the RESTART Act (S.3814) as soon as possible. The act would offer economic relief to the live events industry and help them work to reopen their doors.

Live events venues, performing art centers, and production companies are some of our key customers, so this movement really hit home for our team. We are proud to show our support for this community and this movement and look forward to seeing its powerful impact on the nation.

Check out some of the local and nationwide media attention the movement and Staging Concepts received.
