FIGT 2020 Cancellation Announcements


April 3, 2020

Following the cancellation of the FIGT 2020 Conference in Bangkok, the FIGT Board undertook rigorous work to identify options for hosting an alternative, virtual conference in 2020. Despite intensive and wide-ranging investigations and initial hopeful planning for this virtual option, the Board sadly concludes that there are no feasible, sustainable solutions that could reach our entire FIGT community in a cost-effective manner at this time. As a not-for-profit, volunteer-run organization we must remain cognizant of short term cost/time/capacity constraints in order to continue to thrive in the longer term.

The Board wishes to express its deep and continuing gratitude to our sponsors, presenters and volunteers who continue to commit so much time, energy and expertise to FIGT.

FIGT is a global, highly active and successful virtual community. We will continue to provide virtual opportunities to meet throughout the year and share/connect/celebrate research, insights and experiences. We will continue to leverage our social media presence and intend to remain the leaders in supporting those in global transition.

We appreciate your understanding and continued support, and look forward to engaging with you in our vibrant, global community.

Due to the evolving situation with the 2019-Novel Coronavirus and the difficulties and uncertainties currently surrounding international travel, the FIGT Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the FIGT 2020 Conference in Bangkok. This decision was made after careful consideration and with an abundance of care and concern for the health and wellbeing of our FIGT community and the wider global community.

The Board wishes to express its deep gratitude to our conference host, ISB International School Bangkok, as well as the sponsors, partners, presenters, and volunteers, who have already committed so much time, energy and expertise to FIGT 2020. These key partners, and our valued conference attendees, have been contacted directly about the conference cancellation.

FIGT’s Board is exploring options to enable our community to share the wealth of experience, expertise, research and support that would have been available in Bangkok. We hope to make an announcement about this soon.

FIGT is offering two options for refunds. Attendees can wait until an alternative option is announced and use their registration fee as credit towards its costs, with any balance refunded at that time, OR request a full refund now. Please complete this brief online form to let us know your choice. https://figt.typeform.com/to/nyT0zX

Given the circumstances, and as a small gesture of support, we will absorb the normal credit card fees incurred and issue full refunds.

For questions, please email figt2020@figt.org.
