On 30 September the British Airways i360 will be supporting the #wemakeevents activation in collaboration with the Brighton Music Conference.
Having evolved from a hybrid to a virtual event following the latest Covid-19 restrictions, BMC will support the campaign, with DJs Darius Syrossian (pictured) and Alan Fitzpatrick performing from from 6.30-9.30pm. Their sets will be recorded and will be available to watch on 1 October as part of the event line up.
Billy Mauseth of Brighton Music Conference said: “It’s been a tough year for our event like many others in our sector and we are really happy to be supporting this campaign to bring the city’s event industry together and highlight the talented people working in our industry who are unable to work at the moment and need support.”
The 30 Sepetmber will see Brighton’s seafront lit up red in solidarity for those in the event industry affected by Covid-19. The campaign will begin in New Zealand to then travel around the world in local time.
The Brighton activation is spearheaded by a group of event professionals including the founder of creative event producers Partridge Events, Jacqui Partridge and Ian Silcock, Ian Baird founder of EPIC and Whiskey Bravo Productions and John Wallis from Reveries Events.
Jacqui Partridge, from Partridge Events added: “It’s great to have the Brighton Music Conference on board bringing together live, electronic and conferences all together for this campaign.”
