Staging Concepts HQ to Glow Red in Support of LIVE EVENTS Industry

PLSN Staff • News • August 28, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS – Leading supplier joins 1,500 buildings nationwide in lighted demonstration on Sept. 1st

WHO:   Staging Concepts, a leading supplier of custom staging solutions, will join forces with more than 1,500 companies across the country by illuminating its Minneapolis-based headquarters entirely in red lighting to show its support for the #RedAlertRESTART movement and the live events industry.

 WHAT:  #RedAlertRESTART, #WeMakeEvents and #ExtendPUA are working together to organize a major call to action this Tuesday to implore the U.S. Congress to pass the RESTART Act (S.3814), offering economic relief to the live events industry, which has been shuttered since March 2020, putting millions of people out of work. Additionally, the movement supports ExtendPUA.org in its efforts to continue making Pandemic Unemployment Assistance available to those without work due to COVID-19.

WHERE:  Staging Concepts

                   8400 Wyoming Ave. N, Suite #100

Brooklyn Park, MN 55445

WHEN:  Tuesday, September 1, 2020

9 p.m. – 12:00 a.m. CT

WHY: “Live events is one of many industries that have been profoundly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. It was among the first to shut down and the last to restart,” explained Jessica Ley, marketing and communications manager for Staging Concepts. “We are encouraging everyone to join us in raising public awareness that the live events industry is on ‘red alert’ to endure through this pandemic and propel congressional pressure to act.”

VISUALS:  The Staging Concepts building will be illuminated from 9pm to midnight CT on Tuesday, Sept. 1st.

INTERVIEWS:    Representatives from Staging Concepts are available for interviews.
