In the same conference participated Mr. Ivan Casas, Representative of the Secretary of Government of Bogotá, who presented the well-known "Sello Seguro", a seal that is granted by the public administrations to venues in Bogota that meet certain legal standards and parameters, which contributes to improving the quality of the services provided by the venues that obtain it.
As you already know, last New Year’s Eve, a gunman opened fire at the Reina nightclub in Istanbul, killing 39 people and leaving 69 injured. So, after the attacks at Bataclan in Paris and at Club Pulse in Orlando, the nightlife sector has been hit again by a terrorist attack and now 39 innocent people from 15 different countries have been murdered
We are shocked, deeply saddened, in moral indignation and filled with a huge sense of powerlessness; but we will not sit around and do nothing. Therefore, in solidarity with those injured and the relatives of those who died, the International Nightlife Association has promoted the creation of a fund with the aim to raise money to help the injured and the relatives of the victims killed in the Reina Nightclub attack. We hope to help them recover quickly from this deeply disturbing tragedy.
We would like to count on generosity of people all over the world by donating money to help these families and those injured because it has not only been a crime against the nightlife sector but also against humanity. So, everyone should help. Those interested in helping can make donations through the platform "YouCaring" by visiting this link: https://www.youcaring.com/victimsrelativesandinjuredofturkishterroristattack-730153
On the other hand, we also continue to insist on working towards improving safety measures to make nightclubs increasingly safer as we have been doing these for the last four years. Our intention is to make more difficult for nightlife venues to become targets of these kinds of heinous acts of violence and other unfortunate circumstances. As our General Secretary Mr. Joaquim Boadas stated this morning "Terrorism is a global threat that affects millions of people around the world so we need everyone's cooperation to put it to an end. Terrorist attacks can take place anywhere people gather. So, if our sector, together with worldwide government support, invest more in safety, it will be more improbable attacks like these will happen again. That’s one of the reasons why so many resources are being invested in developing the International Nightlife Safety Seal”.
In addition, Mr. Juan Carlos Diaz, 1st vicepresident of the International Nightlife Association and president of the American Nightlife Association (NCIAA) stated the following: “We want to launch an international appeal to all governments worldwide asking for their help to collaborate with our sector to implement more security measures in nightlife clubs in as many countries as possible. Let’s put an end to nightlife terrorism around the world implementing strong and coordinated action from the international community. Prevention is imperative but we can't do this alone".
For his part, Mr. Maurizio Pasca, 2ond vicepresident of the International Nightlife Association and president of the European Nightlife Association sent all his support to the relatives of the victims and those injured in the attack, placing himself at their disposal.
Finally, Mr. Can Bener, nightlife entrepreneur from Istanbul and ambassador of the International Nightlife in Turkey stated the following: "We highly appreciate this global support, especially in these tough times where we need unity and togetherness the most. Besides, we are proud to inform that the International Nightlife Association has decided to maintain, as scheduled, the creation of the Turkish Nightlife Association in 2017, in collaboration with the European Nightlife Association, as a clear statement of support towards the Turkish nightlife sector and our common fight against any form of terrorism”.
On behalf of the International Nightlife Association and first of all, in relation to the terrorist attack on club Reina in Istanbul we want to condemn this hideous terrorist attack. At the same time, we express our heartfelt condolences to the turkish people, the families and friends of the victims in this tragic moment as they seek to recover from this deeply disturbing tragedy.
Once again, after the attacks on Bataclan in Paris and Club Pulse in Orlando, the nightlife sector has been hit again by a terrorist attack, so we are shocked and deeply saddened. We stand here in moral indignation and are, at the same time, filled with a huge sense of powerlessness but we will not stop working on improving safety measures in order to make nightclubs safer as we have been doing these last four years.
Joaquim Boadas de Quintana, General Secretary of the International Nightlife Association said this morning: "We want to launch an international appeal to all governments worldwide asking for help in order to collaborate with our sector to implement more security measures in nightlife clubs in as many countries as possible. Terrorism is a global threat that requires a strong and coordinated action from the international communit so, it is in this regard that prevention becomes relevant but, of course, we can't do it alone".
Our association, as an Affiliate member of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), will ask each of its members for an official meeting to explain our main concerns and what we are doing in order to improve nightlife venues safety, for the benefit of all citizens worldwide.
