A shining memorial and a flaming appeal of the event industry to politicians to save our industry! Do not let culture & events die out! On 22 June we hosted a virtual event in cooperation with Big City Beats & many artists live from the Adam Hall Experience Center near Frankfurt, Germany.
By bathing monuments in red colour all over Germany, Night of Light wanted to call on government’s attention for the very difficult situation of the event technology industry.
The COVID-19 Pandemic shows a serious communication gap in society, how important the backbone of events is for the economy but also our cultural life. Starting in June 2020 we will introduce creative event industry players from all over Europe in authentic 3 minute interviews. We look behind the scenes of different companies and we show people who create emotional moments with passion. Subscribe to our facebook page for updates!

Initiatives demanding State Aid for the Event Industry
On both - national and international level - many affected companies support initiators of petitions calling for emergency aid, tax measures and further support from the state. A large number of companies also show great solidarity with aid campaigns as well. We would like to present some of the important petitions and exciting initiatives to you.
