2020.08.21 GoLiveTogether Update

Event Details

The EACA will be livestreaming a panel discussion on Friday, August 21, at 2pm ET, 1pm CT, and 11am PT, to conduct a review of the activities and accomplishments of GoLiveTogether.

GoLiveTogether has assembled leaders from across the diverse and vibrant live events ecosystem, including EACA, to drive local, state, and federal legislative actions that will not only be critical to our ability to put millions of people back to work, but also for our country’s economic recovery.

Every events industry recovery dollar will lead to incremental spending on travel, hotels, and restaurants, supporting Main Street merchants decimated by COVID-19. Live events industry legislative relief will serve as its own “stimulus package” because funds will be used to rekindle both an important economic sector and many connected companies. Our industry was producing tens of thousands of events per year before COVID-19, so the economic impact of live events cannot be overstated.

This program will review the status of GoLiveTogether with our esteemed panel of industry leaders.
