EVENTS 4 COVID 19 – Northwest Events sector co-ordinate to supply help to frontline providers

The Covid-19 virus had a devastating impact on the events industry and its suppliers in the Northwest. Many companies have had to postpone or cancel their events and the industry has come to a halt leaving thousands of suppliers, service providers and freelancers out of work.

A network of event organisers and suppliers large and small in the Northwest has been created to pool their resources and work together to assist with requests from the NHS, local government, charities and any other organisations that need support right now to help support the community in the fight against the virus. Titled ‘Events 4 Covid 19’, the group  was initiated at the beginning of April by Nelson Beaumont-Laurencia of CityCo and Robert Masterson of Mustard Media. The group include suppliers that have access to generators, furniture, comms equipment, tents and marquees, outdoor and indoor audio equipment, outdoor and indoor lighting, vehicles, staging equipment, medical and ambulances, heating equipment, venue dressing and many other items. They can also provide services including security, medical, audio-visual engineers, traffic management, project management, networks of freelancers, transportation and volunteer management as well as many other services.

Companies signed up so far include: Engine No.4, Mersey Medical Services, RED DAM Group CCTV, Outgoing Ltd, From the Field, Green Events Company, The ExcluSec Group, Stretch Tent Hire UK, Osb-Events, Mustard Media, Niche Event Hire, Manchester International Festival, John Mayoh Events, The Warehouse Project, GoTo Live, Laura Barker, Inflatable Pub Company, Proud Events, Beyond 90, Blitz Event Solutions, Blitz Fireworks, CityCo and Decordia.

The group has already joined forces with a number of Greater Manchester organisations, charities, initiatives and local government, and would like to urge organisations working to fight the virus and its effects on the community to submit requests for resources large and small. They are also urging other event suppliers large or small in the Northwest to join their efforts.
