We are just over a week away from the Day of Visibility for the Live Event Community on Tuesday 22 September, an unprecedented and united show of support for the live event industries in Canada.
Live events span many industries, including music and the arts, corporate meetings and conventions, sports, and heritage.
Over one million Canadians work in these industries.
Well – they did, until the global threat of COVID-19 closed theatres and cancelled large gatherings earlier this year.
We want to ensure that these event professionals continue to have access to government support until events can safely return.
Light it up Red on 22 September
We already have 200 venues registered on the map. Let’s keep going! We have team packages including venue requests and media templates. Send out a press release to your local TV and newspapers.
We will be adding video assets and still images for use on marquees and projection this Thursday: http://bit.ly/lightuplive-media
No Venue? No Problem!
What can I do if I can’t light up a building? Glad you asked!
- record a short video testimonial (here’s all the instructions)
- use your network and ask for a “celebrity story” (sample scripts here)
- sign up for our Facebook event, and share our content on social channels (@liveeventcomm on Insta, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn)
- take your “I AM LIVE EVENTS” selfie and post to social or send it to us.
