Coalition brings together live events industry leaders to urge local, state, and federal legislators to consider measures for support and recovery.

May 18th – AVT Productions announced their support as a founding partner for Go LIVE Together, a coalition of 80 founding partners—representing over 4,000 companies with U.S. operations—who have joined forces to support legislative actions that will aid the industry’s recovery from COVID-19.

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, we also have to prepare for the future.  

Events serve as a massive incubator for innovation and economic growth.  Advocating for recovery funding will be essential – not only to the events industry – but to the healing and recovery efforts of the global economy, because: 

  • Live events contribute nearly $1 trillion to the U.S. economy annually, with events touching every major sector that makes up the U.S. GDP.
  • In 2019, the events industry employed 3 million workers directly, with a total impact of close to 7 million jobs.
  • The live events industry employs millions of union workers, general laborers, strategists, marketers, concession stand workers, entertainers, riggers, project managers, and more. 
  • Over 80 percent of the companies that serve the live events industry are small, with many being women and minority-owned businesses.

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