Event Industry Association of Ireland
With challenging times ahead it is crucial that the Irish Event Industry is wholeheartedly represented. With so many businesses, organisations, and individuals impacted so profoundly it is imperative that their voices are heard.
Our ask from Government is:
- That all necessary business and workers’ supports required to secure the recovery of the Event Industry be provided for the duration of 2020 and into 2021. This to include for industry crews and other employees a continuation of Covid-19 support payments, free access to online training, accreditation and upskilling opportunities and for all businesses in the industry, business continuity and survival supports essential to sustain them until the reopening of the industry.
- That the Event Industry is recognised in it’s own right in the next Programme for Government and that EIAI is provided with a seat at the table of relevant Task Forces, in order to ensure that we are not left lagging behind in the recovery and reopening phases.
