ASEA Ascent Asia 2020
As we’re sure so many of you are doing, we continue to monitor the effects of COVID-19 coronavirus around the world. ASEA considers it essential to take all necessary precautions and to do so—and to communicate with you—as proactively as possible.
Given the status of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to cancel our incentive trips based in Bali, Indonesia, that were scheduled for June 2020. Both the ASEA Ascent Asia and ASEA Diamond Summit Asia incentive trips have been canceled.
Considering everything these annual events mean to all of us—connecting with new people, spending time with old friends, learning new ways to build our businesses, celebrating our successes, and more—we have not made this decision lightly. We are, however, confident that this is the most responsible course of action at this time. Your work in qualifying for these events is still a tremendous achievement that we recognize and work daily to adequately acknowledge and reward.
The well-being of associates who have qualified for these events, as well as corporate employees assigned as event staff, is among our top priorities. We have been monitoring emergency policies around the globe that could affect all who travel, and we believe it is imperative to carefully consider the safety of our global ASEA community.
Ascent and Diamond Summit 2020 Qualifiers
All current event qualifiers will automatically qualify for next year’s events, as long as they remain active in accordance with the ASEA compensation plan. Dates and locations for next year’s events will be announced at a later time. In addition, current qualifiers will receive more information in the coming months about the reward/recognition that will take the place of this year’s events.
Travel and Hotel Cancelations
ASEA is taking care of travel and lodging cancelations. However, if you are one of the few associates who booked your own flight, please contact your airline directly. Most airline policies will provide a full refund or compensatory credit, and many have even expanded leniency within their policies to alleviate challenges caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.
While we are very disappointed we can’t be together this year for Ascent and Diamond Summit, we are confident that our business remains extremely healthy and we are incredibly optimistic about the future of ASEA across the globe.
Thank you for your contributions toward our success, as well as for understanding this unfortunate change of plans. Please feel free to contact our support team with any questions beyond the event cancellations above at firstname.lastname@example.org.
