The propagation speed of COVID-19 compelled the Luxembourg Government to take radical measurements. During his last address, the Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Xavier Bettel, declared that all activities welcoming publics and not essential to daily living shall be closed.
However, as soon as gatherings of more than 5000 people were cancelled, the event industry started to be impacted. Thus, today’s statement is crucial for the sector’s economic situation.
Professionals from the event industry are not only worried by the cancellation or the postponement of procedures, but also by the economic impact this crisis will induce at the end.
Behind all events, several actors are investing resources: organisers, locations, logistics, services providers.
