Dear friends, partners and community members,
I hope that you are keeping safe and finding the strength and sense of community that are proving essential as we face the challenge of this current pandemic.
It is with a very heavy heart that I am announcing the postponement of Further East 2020 to 15-18 November 2021. This was an incredibly difficult and emotional decision, but one we had to take after careful consideration with our team and partners in light of circumstances beyond our reasonable control, caused by the ongoing covid-19 pandemic.
The welfare of our community is, and always will be, the most important thing to us. And faced with continued uncertainty around global travel – particularly restrictions travelling into Bali – it has become clear that we can no longer guarantee a successful event for you.
Although I’m sure this will come as a huge disappointment, I would like to reassure you that our journey together in 2020 does not end here. Our optimism for the future remains undimmed and, rest assured, we are firmly committed to our mission of keeping you connected as a community – which will be more important now than ever.
We certainly hope that, like you have done in the past, you will continue to trust us as we take the next step on our journey, as a united community. We are all in this together, and we can only overcome this together.
Look after yourselves, your loved ones and each other.
CEO & Founder, This is Beyond Ltd.
