I-X Center closes, felled by coronavirus pandemic

The I-X Center, one of the nation's largest privately run convention facilities, has shut its doors after a 35-year run.

The Cleveland complex's longtime manager announced the closure Wednesday, Sept. 16, citing the coronavirus pandemic as the cause. The building has been idle since March, when the state barred mass gatherings and most events to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus.

It's unclear what will happen to the 2.2 million-square-foot events facility, which is owned by the city of Cleveland and sits next to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

ArtsNow joined local arts and culture agencies from across the state to collect signatures from our respective regions. This information will be submitted to our statewide advocacy partner Ohio Citizens for the Arts, who is formally presenting to Governor DeWine and requesting his support and relief for organizations statewide.

OCA believes signatures from residents will be a tipping point in helping our elected officials understand the need of the arts and culture sector and the immediacy of that need.

Your voice matters a great deal.

I hope you will take 60 seconds (it really is that fast!) to add your name to this growing list and to share this request with your colleagues and friends.

Things are not just getting. They ARE real. They are real for the big guys and they are real for your small, independent community venues - the venues where the big guys get their start, where you see & hear the best and brightest and the new, where your girlfriend's band and your crazy uncle's band play, where you go to dance like nobody's watching.

“I don’t know if the audience side really understands how dire the situation is for millions of hard-working professionals.
Broadway is closed until 2021. Cirque du Soleil is filing for bankruptcy, and cut 3500+ jobs. Feld Entertainment laid off 90% of its workforce permanently. Live Nation had to lay off a significant amount of employees. Cruise ship entertainers are out of work. Theme park productions have no idea when they will be recalled. There are no concerts, festivals or touring productions scheduled until 2021 and if they don’t happen next year, they may never happen again. No Jazz Fest, no Coachella, no Bonnaroo, no EDC, no ROLLING STONES FINAL TOUR(S), and no SYMPHONIES....all gone. It’s being predicted that 90% of independent music venues may close, the longer this continues. No more Whiskey-a-gogo, no more Tipitina’s, no more Red Rocks, all gone. Entertainment Management, Publicity, Live events coordinator, Performing arts organizations of all kinds- choirs, theatres, orchestras, dance companies- all are trying to figure out on a daily basis how to keep going and employ anyone they can in the field.
More than 12,000,000 people work entertainment production in the US and produce revenue in the multi billions of dollars, we are not insignificant and this industry cannot reopen until mass gatherings can happen again. This doesn’t include the additional layoff of venue management and bar staff, security and thousands of vendors. Also, we can’t forget about the hundreds of thousands of performers and entertainers that make our careers possible, without them, there is no show.
So when you see your entertainment friends begging you to wear masks and stay home, understand that we are helplessly watching our industry crumble before our eyes because the country is doing so poorly at reducing the spread. This IS personal for us, our entire livelihood is dependent on social gathering and we will not accept being labeled “nonessential”.
Music and art are critical to a cheerful, balanced society.
Everyone’s career and the whole industry is indefinitely on hold. PLEASE wear your mask (over your mouth AND your nose) and wash your hands.

Across the country, music venues remain closed due to the pandemic — and according to a new survey, 90 percent of independent venue owners, promoters and bookers say that they will have to close permanently within the next few months, if they can't get an infusion of targeted government funding.
