Extending the voucher system to event tickets – changes that are already integrated in Art. 38a of the Law on the provision of services in tourism, and relate to the possibility of issuing vouchers, or deferment of refunds for package deals, coverage and tickets for events (concerts, festivals, conferences), given that event organizers are endangered in the same way about the same illiquidity problem. It is proposed that the issued voucher can be used within 365 days from the date of the postponed event for the same or another event of that organizer, and if the buyer does not like it, he can get a refund within 30 days after 365 days from the date of the postponed event. In the crisis caused by the corona virus, the entire event industry was the first to be disabled at the time of the ban on public gatherings and will be the last industry to start working. Urgent adoption of a plan to relax measures to ban public gatherings – especially for events up to 100, 500 and 1000 or more visitors. The association believes that smaller events, up to 100 people, can start working as soon as possible, since they are not more risky than, for example, larger stores, religious gatherings and the like. In addition, it is necessary to define the expected protection measures at public gatherings so that participants in the event industry can begin to adequately prepare. Also, an urgent announcement of a date before which events over 1.000 people will certainly not be allowed is required, so that the organizers have a legal basis for postponing or canceling the event and minimizing costs. Four proposals were sent to the addresses of Minister Obuljen Koržinek and Ministers Horvat and Capelli, which would start the fight to preserve the industry, which annually earns over 4,5 billion kuna: Extension of CES measures – for event industry companies most affected by the crown crisis for an additional 3 + 3 months or a total of 3 + 3+ 3 + 3. Companies that still have a drop in turnover of over 70% in the reference quarter compared to the same quarter last year can qualify for the extended measures. The ban on public gatherings directly affects all cultural figures, festivals, theaters, conferences, concerts, plays, clubs, performers, DJs, congresses, sporting events, weddings, but also related activities such as equipment rental companies, hall and space owners, photographers and all others who live from the event, and whose gradual opening will be the last in a series. The Croatian event industry, more precisely companies and crafts that live directly from various forms of public gatherings, has about 2.000 entities that employ 10.000 people and earn over 4,5 billion kuna a year. Today, the Committee for Events of the Voice of Entrepreneurs Association sent to the Ministries of Culture, Tourism and Economy a proposal for four urgent measures crucial for the survival of the Croatian event industry, endangered primarily by the ban on public gatherings. “Of course we understand and support the reasons for the decision to ban public gatherings, but now we demand that our industry urgently focus on the next steps, increase our chances of surviving this crisis and clearly begin to communicate a plan to ease measures and allowing public gatherings.As soon as it is allowed to work, this industry will be the first to reawaken people’s sense of freedom, make them laugh, educate, dance, entertain, make happy and positively affect their mental health.”Point out from UGP. Relaxation of the terms of HAMAG’s COVID-19 loans for smaller companies – extension of the loan use period from 6 to 12 months, increase of HBOR’s COVID-19 loan fund and relaxation of conditions in a way that includes all endangered activities. When we add to this the consumption of tourists, revenues from overnight stays, catering and all other directly related revenues that are many times higher than the stated figure – it becomes clear that the event industry is one of the key branches of Croatian tourism, but also economy, culture and society as a whole.
