This post is for my friends who don’t work in events, but who in some small (or massive) way have been touched by them. 
TLDR: today join me and post a picture of an event that made an impact on you. Tag your MP and DCMS. Ask the government to offer tangible targeted support to this sector. 

Use the hashtag #wemakeevents #StandAsOne

If you’re wondering why you should get involved...
Maybe you got married and someone made it the most magical day of your life. Perhaps you went to a concert where you had your first snog. Or was it one of the golden tickets from the Olympics where you saw the Opening Ceremony dress rehearsal? Was it an incentive trip with work colleagues that took you somewhere you hadn’t been before? It might have been that year you managed to go to Glastonbury. Or when you trained your nuts off and managed a marathon. Or discovered a brilliant new comic at the Edinburgh Fringe. Maybe you sang Carols at The Royal Albert Hall with your child. Or bought a craft beer at the small independent music spot round the corner and saw a top class up and coming band. Maybe you went to an exhibition that gave you tips on putting your first home together.
Events bring colour to our lives. We are asking you to remember these moments, because without further, targeted assistance, all of these are at high risk of becoming memories. You may have heard we’re covered by SEISS and Furlough. We’re not - the majority of freelance event people have been forced in LTDs because of our tax laws and they have received nothing. Furlough all but ends this month and yet we’re not able to return to work. You may have read about the 1.5 billion - the criteria were complex and many, many venues have slipped through the cracks. For the industry supply chain the best they have been eligible for are loans many haven’t even been able to get these. 
We want to get back to work. We’re experts at doing it as safely as possible. #standasone #weareviable #eventprofs
