ARA Set to Launch Manifesto for the Safe Return of Live Music and Sport
Published on 11 February 2021


Top names from the worlds of live music and sport will come together with key EU decision-makers for the event, which will follow an ambitious live music experiment organised by the Rockhal arena which takes place in Luxembourg this week. Behind the scenes content and insights from the Rockhal test concerts will be screened as part of the conference, offering an opportunity to reflect on the lessons learned and next steps and helping to frame the discussion around what still needs to be done.

The virtual conference will explore how arenas and large capacity venues across Europe are preparing for a safe and sustainable reopening. The event will also explore what support the live events sector needs from policymakers on both a national and EU level to enable long-term resilience and future growth. The discussion will bring together high-level speakers representing EU institutions, national governments as well as the sports and live music sectors.

The live virtual event will feature contributions from a range of speakers including John Langford, COO, AEG Europe and EAA President; Sam Tanson, Minister of Culture, Luxembourg; and Alex Jäger, Sport Director, Champions Hockey League. A range of keynotes and two lively panel discussions will precede the ARA Manifesto launch in the closing session.

The ARA’s #AGameofTwoHalves: The Return Leg virtual conference is the second of two online events, delivered in partnership with the European Arenas Association and IQ Magazine.
