New Alliance, Entertainment Industry Response, Forms to Fight COIVD-19

All Access Staging and Productions, design firm Silent House Productions, event managers Go For Site Management and Joe Lewis Company, and Gallagher Staging & Productions have joined forces to create Entertainment Industry Response. The new entity is designed to provide relief to healthcare professionals working on the front lines of COVD-19 crisis.

The EIR website is a treasure trove of information for those in need, connecting them, for example, to Sew What? and PixMob for face masks and ETC, Upstaging, and PixMob for face shields. Working with firms like these and others, EIR aims to provide drive-through testing facilities, tent hospitals and compounds, cold rooms (as extensions for morgues), and buildouts to extend industry facilities.
