In the night from 22 to 23 June, the Heinrich Pesch House in Germany was bathed in red light. The conference house and hotel, which is run by Jesuits, has thus participated in the nationwide "Night of Light" campaign, which aims to draw attention to the plight of the event industry in the COVID 19 pandemic.

Since mid-March the event industry has been largely at a standstill. The official regulations in the course of the Corona pandemic have deprived the entire event industry of the basis for its work. Due to the ongoing crisis, larger events are currently still prohibited until the end of October, which places heavy demands on companies and, as a consequence, on their employees. Of course, the industry is not alone with this problem. In contrast to other sectors of the economy, however, the service industry does not have the opportunity to make up for the losses it has suffered after the crisis or, for example, to produce "in stock" while the crisis is over.

With the "Night of Light", those affected signalled their interest in a sector dialogue with politicians in order to discuss economically effective aid. The Heinrich Pesch Hotel and Meeting House is also affected by the effects of the pandemic and therefore took part in the nationwide campaign to set a shining example for the event industry.

The hotel's long-standing technology partner, around GmbH from Mannheim, provided the necessary technical equipment. The company's technicians spent the whole of Monday installing and aligning the floodlights.

Further information on the campaign is also available at www.night-of-light.de
