WE  CAN  SAVE

CELEBRATIONS

THE PEOPLE & SMALL BUSINESSES AT THE HEART OF OHIO

THE
PROBLEM

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE 

HAVE THEIR LIVES ON HOLD

& THEIR LIVELIHOOD IN DANGER

COVID-19 related closures have impacted every facet of the economy. While Ohio has been a leader in prioritizing public health, the lack of attention regarding "controlled private events" (e.g., weddings, funerals, receptions, etc.) has left us wondering: 

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE FUTURE OF EVENTS?

Event production serves, employs and affects millions of Ohioans. Practically overnight an entire sector of commerce has been eliminated, and the small business owners who drive this industry are being left without answers. 

OHIO EVENTS CANNOT AFFORD TO LIVE IN LIMBO INDEFINITELY.

 

THE

PLAN

ESTABLISH A TASK FORCE PARTNERSHIP

BETWEEN THE EVENTS INDUSTRY AND THE GOVERNMENT

Our industry is unique, the full extent of which is impossible to understand without first-hand experience in the field. We offer our experience, to supplement that of health officials in order to
FIND A PATH FORWARD THAT IS REALISTIC • SUSTAINABLE • SAFE

THE MESSAGE

This is NOT a plea to

indiscriminately reopen events

 
 

TAKE

ACTION

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO BE HEARD

Dear Governor DeWine: Urgently, I request the creation of an Ohio Special Events Advisory Group, a task force to address the unique challenges of safely reopening controlled private gatherings for less than 300 persons. The wedding & events industry is worth over $60 BILLION nationally and affects nearly every facet of the economy. Private gatherings of this nature are impossible to categorize with any other type of commerce. For the health of the economy and the confidence of consumers, we require immediate clarity on current policy and experienced, community-minded leadership actively involved in future policy creation. The obstacles facing this group of small business owners requires first-hand experience in our field. We wish to partner with lawmakers and health officials to create a targeted plan for sustainable reopening. We are willing and able to comply with regulations. Please establish an Ohio Special Events Advisory Group immediately.
