TMS has been honored to provide transportation and parking solutions for thousands of live events worldwide over the past 25 years. We have seen firsthand the power of bringing people together in person, whether for a convention, conference, concert, sporting event, or global gathering.
The live events industry is facing a challenging road ahead as the world now focuses on mitigating the spread and impact of COVID-19. TMS is proud to join Go LIVE Together, a coalition of more than 80 founding partners that aims to support legislative actions that will aid the industry’s recovery from this crisis.
Go LIVE Together has assembled leaders from the live events industry to ensure our diverse voices and concerns are heard. We are collaborating to drive local, state, and federal legislative actions to assist the millions of people employed in this industry, including through COVID-19 relief and stimulus funding.
The live events industry contributes nearly $1 trillion and 6.6 million jobs to the U.S. economy and drives entrepreneurship, innovation, research, and job creation. Before COVID-19, the industry was producing tens of thousands of events per year, and the economic repercussions of shutdowns and stay-at-home orders have been devastating. Legislative relief will allow us to support the many interconnected businesses and workers who make up this valuable industry.
Until it is safe for us to hold live events again, we must make sure to protect an industry that is essential to our country’s economy and national identity.
