We aim to act in the most responsible manner, taking the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our partners and employees, while also attempting to minimize disruption as much as possible.
As the situation continues to evolve, we feel it is irresponsible to bring together large groups of people from across the globe. Therefore we have made the decision to cancel all Awin events and training that were due to take place between now and June 30, 2020, globally - including ThinkTank US 2020 and the 2020 Network Awards. At this time, ThinkTank US and the Network Awards will resume in 2021, but should there be any further changes to this we will provide an update.
This was not an easy decision or one that was taken lightly. However with the situation continuing to evolve on a daily basis, we wanted to not only reduce the safety risk but also reduce the financial impact on our partners and the risk of money being lost later if travel restrictions continue to expand. We think it’s best to make the decision now so everyone knows where they stand, rather than operating under the threat of cancellation and incurring more health and financial costs later down the line. We are currently exploring the option of hosting virtual events in their place and will keep you informed.
We will be refunding all tickets and sponsorships for the events and training that have been canceled. We are also offering the option to transfer these costs to our 2021 events. For any ThinkTank US specific questions or concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We offer our sincere apologies for any disruption experienced by our partners during this time while we take the necessary precautions to help prevent the risk of a situation and events beyond our control.
Awin will always follow any official government guidance and regulation on the matter, and we are continuing to monitor official channels for developments and will make changes to our practices accordingly.
