Link 1 - http://www.imdb.com/event/ev0001170/
Link 2 - http://www.imdb.com/event/ev0002588/

These are both the same events. The festival is officially called Golden Apricot International Film Festival, but sometimes it is referred as Yerevan International Film Festival, hence the mistake it is listed as 2 separate events. But they are the same.

Even says so on the official site - http://www.gaiff.am/
As you can see in the top left corner of the page it shows both of the titles.
These are the same Film Festival...

Is there a way to merge these events? And show it in  the official way as Golden Apricot International Film Festival.

Hi Daniel,

Unfortunately not, there is no easier way for us to combine the data of 2 events than there is for you. What I'd suggest doing is copying the data from ev0002588 and resubmit it to ev0001170, then once the data has been accepted to ev0001170 and is live on the site to delete it from ev0002588 making it clear in the comments that this is a duplicate event page and should be deleted from the site.

I've renamed ev0001170 "Golden Apricot Yerevan International Film Festival" to align with the official documentation.

Regards,
Will
