Coronavirus: the impact on the event industry and the #italialive campaign
4 May 2020 - The COVID-19 emergency is generating an unprecedented crisis in the event sector: live events, in each form, outdoors and indoors, are suspended and it is assumed that the recovery cannot take place until next year.
We are aware of the need for social distance and precautions to combat the spread of the virus. However it is also true that this detention will have very serious consequences for the nearly 600,000 people who have done their job at events and congresses and support their families for this.
About 1 million small and large events that produce 65.5 billion euros of turnover 36.2 billion euros of impact on GDP. A strategic sector for Italy, with 569 thousand employees, involving 56.4 million participants and occupying 40% of the rooms of the hotels.
The initiative EVENTS & LIVE INDUSTRY with its manifesto and the #ItaliaLive campaign addresses the institutions, operators, agencies, companies, media, all citizens to support the call for the upcoming decrees to include measures to support the sector.
RIGHT HUB has signed up to the #ItaliaLive campaign.
