According to article 53 from European VAT DIRECTIVE 2006/112/EC as amended by European DIRECTIVE 2008/8/EC, the place of supply of services in respect of admission to cultural, artistic, sporting, scientific, educational, entertainment or similar events, such as fairs and exhibitions, and of ancillary services related to the admission, supplied to a taxable person, shall be the place where those events actually take place. Also, article 54, 1. of the same Directive disposes that the place of supply of services and ancillary services, relating to cultural, artistic, sporting, scientific, educational, entertainment or similar activities, such as fairs and exhibitions, including the supply of services of the organizers of such activities, supplied to a non- taxable person shall be the place where those activities actually take place.
