About Us

Our Story

Events create meaningful experiences for the community and celebrate our humanity. The live event industry, often overlooked by public agencies, employs thousands of event professionals in San Diego County.  When SDEC was formed as a grassroots coalition in 2020 our mission was to create operational protocols to re-open events safely and to help event professionals get back to work after many months of canceled events due to Covid.  These protocols are still being used by the County of San Diego as the gold standard for events.


Industry Updates

SDEC works tirelessly with elected officials, special event oversight officials, and event vendors to advocate for the special event industry on every level.  Here are some of the highlights of our accomplishments since our launch in 2020.

That’s a lot of action & awareness from this coalition in the short time we have been working together!


  • If one person or company tried to take on these challenges, it is very unlikely that we would have seen success. Our all-volunteer team has made huge strides on behalf of all event producers in the region.
