Reports over the weekend covered the news that tragically 260 festival-goers lost their lives at an event in Israel. As an association that promotes the cultural and wellbeing value of events, as well as the professionalism of the people that make them happen we send our condolences, thoughts and moral support to those professionals working in what must be unimaginable horror.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the many who have sadly lost their lives over the weekend, but also to the families and victims of the many tragedies that have occurred over what has been an extraordinarily sad recent period of time.

Tom Clements, President NOEA
