    As the live event industry remains largely dark, a grassroots group is organizing a special day to shed light on the talented professionals, destinations, venues and services across the country that are on stand by for a safe return. An hour after sundown Tuesday, September 22, 2020 the Day of Visibility for the Canadian Live Events Industry will see venues and businesses across the country lit in red.

    “We need to step out from the dark and highlight and celebrate the breadth of the industry,” says Morgan Myler, Live Event Community co-founder.

    The Live Event Community is reaching out to technicians, suppliers and venues across the country to raise the profile of an industry that has lost 80-95%, following in the footsteps of similar campaigns in both Germany (#nightoflight2020) and the UK (#LightItInRed).

    The organization is urging the events community to work with local suppliers, colleagues and venues to create their own interpretation of the theme. The event's website will feature an interactive map to showcase the participating locations, and provide resources such as safety documents and a boilerplate permit request letter to be sent to local governments as needed. A robust social media campaign will also be in place, using the hashtags #LightUpLive #EclaironsLesScenes

    As the world reopens and we step back onto our stage, the events industry, we have the greatest opportunity of our lifetime.

    We can remake the events world in a way that is fair healthy and sustainable.

    You should attend the sustainable events forum if you want to make your mark on the world through the events you touch. This is the place for you if you believe events can create a more sustainable future for the planet.

    Through education and connection we will strive to inspire each other and collaborate to act to create positive change in the event industry and the world.

    Attend this event if you are: 

    •  A professional and a leader in the event industry (hint: you are!)
    • Serious about being a force for positive climate action
    • Ready to connect with your peers and create climate action momentum in the events industry
    • Able to create opportunities out of problems, see the silver lining around the cloud and can leap tall buildings in a single bound (in other words…you are an event professional!)

    We hope you can join us and together we can build our new world of events.

    Ongoing tumultuous upheaval has swept through our industry and thrown us into uncharted waters. You may feel quite untethered, and rightly so. Please look to us and consider SITE Canada your life preserver in these choppy seas of change. Let’s anchor ourselves together as we initiate a reset and move forward with renewed purpose.

    We hope you have marked October 28th on your calendar. Although the channel has changed from “live” to “virtual,” our Education Day: The Comeback Journey, promises to be an engaging and instructive gathering of your peers.
    Education Day will expand our thinking, prowess, and ingenuity with an agenda chock full of ace keynote speakers serving up fresh takes on relevant topics; Dialogue Dens offering small group connections; guided wellness activity,‘snackable’ insights to ponder; and inspiring stories from those out there bringing the moxie in a time where fearlessness wins the day.
    We all need a boost in morale, compass direction, and renewed purpose. On October 28th, we will strive to provide a bounty of uplifting content and camaraderie.
    What you can look forward to:
    REUNITE. Ample interaction with your fellow SITE members plus friends of SITE
    REFOCUS. Support & personal reflection for a lift in confidence & optimism
    REIMAGINE. Hard skills and practices to enhance your toolkit & client offerings
    SITE’s Vancouver Manifesto committed to social responsibility and sustainability. With that in mind, The Comeback Journey is proud to include a special presentation by a young Canadian company that has developed novel eco-friendly product for the hotel industry. On the vanguard of the environmental movement (and featured in National Geographic!), these bright minds are sure to fill your hearts and minds with “Yes, we can!” spirit and propel us all forward with renewed hope and vigour.
    We want you to know that you’re not alone. We’re sending high fives and much needed virtual hugs in salute to your boundless capacity to revive, refocus, and face a new day. We’re in this together!
    Let’s applaud our resilience as we navigate this crisis and realize our power to meet formidable challenges. The Comeback Journey will take us to the other side to forge a new and vital path.
