Tonight, September 30th, the Barco headquarters in Kortrijk light it in red. Not because it’s our favourite color, but because we are joining the #WeMakeEvents Global Action Day.
#WeMakeEvents is an international movement that highlights the needs of the live events and entertainment sector during this COVID-19 crisis. They give a voice to the individuals and companies in the industry and create understanding through creative actions, social media and awareness initiatives. On September 30th, it’s Global Action Day. With an encouraging message to unite with businesses, organizations and freelancers in the industry, thousands of venues around the globe will #LightItInRed as an outreach to government officials and media to raise awareness and drive change.
As a long-standing supplier of visualization equipment to the rental and staging industry for music festivals, corporate events and live spectaculars; Barco feels strongly connected with the affected parties. By joining this action, we first and foremost want to support all our partners and customers, and applaud them for the resilience they’ve shown so far. Together we stand as one, together we’ll make events again!
