The “Night of Light” took place on Monday 22nd June. In an exceptional campaign both in Switzerland and abroad, locations, organizers, event agencies, trade fair companies, stand builders, caterers, technical service providers, decoration companies, culture professionals, and production companies were involved in a unique solidarity action.
In Switzerland alone, 1100 objects were illuminated in red. Among them was the Jet d’Eau in Geneva, many objects in Lausanne, the Château de Chillon, the Bundesplatz and the Wankdorf stadium in Bern, the KKL Luzern, the Messe Basel, the Zurich Opera House, and the Hallenstadion Zurich. It was a silent but emotional cry for help from thousands of people in the event business, who are still not sufficiently heard by politicians.
The “Night of Light” is an international campaign that has generated massive public interest, and increased awareness about the issues the event industry is facing.
