The Romanian Association of Concert Planners and Cultural Events (AROC) denied an information released in mass media that the event planner and cultural events sector had received aid from the Romanian state, following the emergency ordinance no 224 on the state aid scheme for HoReCa sector. Event planners say that, following the vote in Parliament on Wednesday, exhibition, fair and congress planners have been added within this aid scheme, so the business operators activating under the 8230 CAEN code.

Event, concert planners operate under the 9001, 9002, 9003, 9004, 9321, 9329 CAEN codes, and even under the 4791 CAEN code (restricted to ticketing for cultural events), for which the entire cultural sector has repeatedly asked for help.

“Indeed, these CAEN coded have been subject to debates to be introduced among the CAEN codes eligible for this aid scheme, but, for unknown reasons, they haven’t reached the finish line.

We mention one more time that the concert and cultural sector is still waiting for the help pledged by the Romanian authorities after 14 months since the activity has been suspended, an aid that has never materialised despite discussions and consultations,” says AROC in a press release.

They asked the Government to come to the aid of the cultural sector by agreeing an aid scheme for this field to help them cope with the losses prompted by the restrictions imposed amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Every day that passes by without the authorities intervening to help the sector wipes the slate clean then effort of thousands and thousands of people who have performed in this field,” concludes the press release signed by ARTmania – ARTmania Festival Sibiu/Blaj aLive, 3 Smoked Olives Festival, BestMusic Live/METALHEAD, Cyclic, Comparty Events – diMANSIONS Hit Music Festival, Electric Castle, Emagic Live – Awake Festival, Expirat, Fapte – Jazz in the Park, Flow Concept, Global Records, Le Bistrot Sociale, Le Petit Festival de Bucharest, Mozaic Jazz Festival, Movement Team – Sports Festival, NEVERSEA, Nuit Sociale, Centrul Cultural Plai – Plai Festival/JazzTM, Scala Events, Smida Jazz Festival, SNRS – Sunwaves Festival, Sprint Media, Summer Well, TIFF – Asociația Festivalul de Film Transilvania, The Institute, Showberry – Rocanotherworld/Classix Festival, The Mission/Fall in Love Festival, UNTOLD, VRTW, Wine and Street Food Festival, Why Not Us – Street Food Festival, Wise Factor – The Fresh.
