#WeMakeEvents campaign launches supporter scheme

#WeMakeEvents, the campaign to protect the live events supply chain, has launched #WeMakeEvents Supporters, a free sign-up scheme in which people can demonstrate their support for the live sector and gain helpful benefits and resources in return.

Everyone who signs up will receive access to webinars hosted by #WeMakeEvents and PLASA over the past 12 months, spanning business topics such as HR, Brexit and IP, as well as technical sessions, creative presentations and industry conversations. To assist freelancers and single person company directors further, these supporters will be able to request free credit checks on UK companies to reduce financial risk on purchases and investments.

#WeMakeEvents Supporters will be signposted to several industry resources, including Curtain Call’s new recruitment platform in which freelancers are matched with trusted and verified companies. Plus they will receive the weekly #WeMakeEvents newsletter and the online editions of Light & Sound International (LSi) and Lighting&Sound America (LSA) magazines.

Supporters can also get involved in the dynamic industry community with an invite to the weekly UK and monthly international #WeMakeEvents Zoom calls and a free entry badge for both PLASA Show and PLASA Focus Leeds which includes an invite to the official show parties.

Launched at PLASA Show 2021 in London last month, #WeMakeEvents Supporters has already seen a large uptake, demonstrating the ongoing high level of engagement to protect and promote live events and entertainment. Supporters can opt in to be listed on the webpage to add strength to the global movement which continues to amplify the voice of the industry at government level and across the public domain.

Andy Dockerty, Managing Director for Adlib and member of the #WeMakeEvents Steering Committee, comments, “We’re pleased to offer this new way of supporting #WeMakeEvents, specially for our industry’s large population of freelancers and single person company directors, who have been impacted heavily throughout the pandemic. The #WeMakeEvents community is really what drives the campaign, so as a thank you, we have put together a package of useful services and signposts along side invitations to get involved and make your voice heard.”

Koy Neminathan, Sales Director for Avolites and fellow member of the #WeMakeEvents Steering Committee, adds, “Right from the start we’ve been committed to building the international #WeMakeEvents community, and becoming a Supporter is a great way to stay connected with campaign developments as well as all the people who help make it happen.”
