Live Events Network

Bectu has launched a comprehensive set of standards for the live events industry to fight for better working conditions for its members in the sector.

NOTE: The Set the Standard campaign was launched in 2019 and is currently partially suspended due to Covid. For current Bectu Live Events Network updates, campaigns and resources, please see your Bectu Live Events Network website:

The campaign comes as more than three quarters (76%) of Bectu members in the live events sector felt pay in the sector needed to be improved by setting minimum rates. A further two thirds (69%) of respondents named long hours as their biggest concern in their roles, followed by almost half (46%) reporting lack of crew welfare facilities and one in three (30%) expressing concern over health and safety.

Bectu plans to directly address this in its set of standards for the industry, which also covers health and safety, diversity inclusion and provision of appropriate facilities based on the Equality Act’s protected characteristics.
