Staging Concepts Headquarters to Glow in Red in Support of Live Events Industry

Staging Concepts, a supplier of custom staging solutions, will join forces with more than 1,500 companies across the country by illuminating its Minneapolis, Minnesota-based headquarters entirely in red lighting to show its support for the #RedAlertRESTART movement and the live events industry Tuesday, September 1, from 9:00pm to 12:00am CT.

#RedAlertRESTART, #WeMakeEvents, and #ExtendPUA are working together to organize a major call to action this Tuesday to implore the US 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.

Staging Concepts is located at 8400 Wyoming Avenue N, Suite #100, Brooklyn Park, Minnesota 55445.

"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 will be 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."

The Staging Concepts building will be illuminated from 9:00pm to midnight CT on Tuesday, September 1st.
