The Sun Circle Group states that the technical production and live events industry in South Africa has been one of the hardest hit under the current Disaster Management Act, enacted by the government on 15 March 2020.
Stakeholders in the industry, such as SACIA, TPSA and the SA Events Council, have been trying to engage with the government since the start of the lockdown, but few gains have been made.
These industry statistics are desperately required to present to government:
– The event industry’s contribution to the GDP.
– The number of people employed by the sector.
– Job losses and business distress.
– Lack of workable Business Relief Funding.
