All eTickets have the name of the buyer on them, the buyer is our customer and he holds the rights to complaints.

Are refunds due to postponement of the events?

East European Comic Con in accordance with Article 32 of OUG 70 from 14.05.2020 *(updated on 12 May 2021 with Law no.131) does not refund tickets holders due to postponement made as a result of COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the government and local authorities. Refunds are possible only by request formulated within 30 days from when our first event can take place. However, we pledge to help each and every buyer to use their tickets at any of our next 3 events or the same value of the money used in our shop to buy merchandise.

Any refund made carries a tax of the full amount paid 3.9%+VAT(4.65%).

Photo OPs and Autographs tickets become refundable ONLY IF THE ACTOR WHICH THE TICKET WAS BOUGHT FOR, HAS CANCELLED THE APPEARANCE. In such a case the entrance ticket is not refundable! Photo OPs and Autograph tickets can either be used for another guest within the same price range or be refunded. The payment processer tax will be withheld as mentioned above.   

eTickets are non-refundable and non-resellable!

Electronic Tickets are non-refundable and you cannot resell them. We understand that sometimes, unplanned things happen, but since the risk of fraud is too high, we reserve the right to cancel any ticket that is present on platforms like OLX, lajumatate, publi24, viagogo, okazii, or any other website.

eTickets are sent to you as PDF attached in an email which you need to have already opened on your mobile or print out and bring them with you, at the event.

If your ticket has not arrived even after 24 hours of having placed the order, please contact Entertix team at [email protected] or by phone +4 0748-110-111. Most of the time it is due to the customers misspelling their email, or the email being categorized as Spam/Junk.

General Access Tickets

ONE General Access Ticket can be used by only ONE person for ONE Session. Due to COVID-19, we had to change all 4-3 days tickets into 4 Tickets one a session of each day that the person previously had tickets for. Tickets are marked with the day, session, and hours they can be used for! Thursday 16:00-20:00 (26th August), Friday Session 1 12:00-16:00, Friday Session 2 17:30-21:30(27th of August). Saturday Session 1 09:30-14:30, Saturday Session 2 16:00-21:00(28th of August). Sunday Session 1 09:30-14:30, Sunday Session 2 16:00-21:00(29th of August). 3 Days Ticket or “Abonament 3 Zile” must be confirmed on entertix.ro/eecc before they can be used for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. 4 Days Ticket or “Abonament 4 Zile” must be confirmed on entertix.ro/eecc before they can be used for all 4 days of the event.

General Access tickets provide you access to the indoor part of our event, including access to the Panels(Q&A / Talks) with the actor present at the event. However, access to an area is subject to the rules and regulations of the event and Romanian Law. At some times some areas can become very crowded, which would require us to limit access to those already present in that area.

Access Wristband and General Access Tickets

Due to the COVID-19 measure, we were forced to apply new measures, including limiting the physical contact with our attendees. This means that ONE General Access Ticket for one session will grants you access to the event for the duration of the session 4-5 hours. However, if a person decides to leave the event area, they would not be able to return with the used ticket.

Access is subject to change due to the laws in place. At this moment all people providing a vaccination certificate and a test will be allowed to enter, however, this might change based on the law. We will take all measures to ensure the event can take place according to the law within the format we have created it.

Vaccine certificate and Test Certificates

The only way to attend East European Comic Con without any additional costs is to be vaccinated. This will not only save you a lot of time, hassle, and money but your life as well. We do accept people who have certificates attesting a negative result for SARS-COV-2 infection, valid(*) until the end of the session they are attending. However, this is subject to change based on the laws and regulations for events. Two scenarios might apply, in case of an increased number of infections we might be required to limit the event to vaccinated only, or in case of all measures being canceled, people won’t be required to provide any proof aside from the ticket. 

*VALID means the RT-PCR test was done 67 hours or less before the start of each session the visitor is attending, to cover the entire session length (4-5 hours)  – 67+5 =72h. While the Quick ANTIGEN test must be done 19 hours or less before the start of each session the visitor is attending, to cover the entire session length (4-5 hours)  – 19+5 =24h.

Children under the age of 3 years old do not require a testing certificate. However please remember that the event is not suitable for young children.  

Although we are working to offer a quick antigen testing option at the event, we cannot guarantee it. In the event of the option being available we will announce such a possibility closer to the event dates. In such a case the costs would be between 30 and 50 Ron. 

Ex: The only way a certificate attesting a negative result due to Antigen testing can cover 2 session is: a) if the test was done early morning before session 1 and the person attends session 2 as well. b) The person has the test done right before the start of session 2 of a day and attends the session 1 of the next day.  

Childrens and General Access Tickets

Children under 6 years old have free access under the following rule: 1 Child + 1 Adult holder of General Access Ticket / 2 Children + 2 Adults holder of General Access Ticket. In this case, he receives a wristband if the parent allows it. Children under 4 years old are not required to wear the wristband.

The festival will have some areas that are not suitable for children, so any person under 14 should be accompanied by an adult. We highly recommend that parents attend the event along with their kids; after all, it can be fun for everyone regardless of their age.

ALL CHILDREN UNDER 14 YEARS OLD MUST BE ACCOMPANIED AT ALL TIMES BY A MAJOR ADULT OR A PARENT. East European Comic Con has no responsibility if any harm has come to the child. Be aware EECC is a crowded event!

People with Disability and General Access Tickets

A person with a disability is allowed to access the event for free, for one day only, if they present a European Disability Card or if he/she submits to our email(contact [at] comic-con.ro) documentation has to be sent at least 30 days before the event.

DUE TO COVID-19 the deadline for submitting for a disability-free entrance 30 days before the event.

Buying Autographs and Photo Ops

Yes, you can buy Photo Op and Autograph tickets before buying a General Access ticket, but you need a General Access ticket to use the Photo Op and Autograph tickets. We cannot guarantee that you will find a general access ticket, for the exact session and day you want to attend if you don’t buy it as soon as possible. Be sure of which day and session a guest is doing photo ops/autographs before purchasing your admission tickets.

Number of people in a Photo Op

At the request of our celebrities, we limit the number of people in a picture with an actor to four. We make NO exceptions to this rule. Only ONE person can be in a photo-op for the price of one photo op ticket. For four customers, you would need four photo op tickets. One child under 6 can take the picture together with one Adult holder of a photo op ticket.

Please do not wear glasses as sometimes glare effect will occur. Retakes are only possible if the actor’s photo op sessions are not sold out.
