The times we are facing due to the spread of COVID-19 influence our everyday life and all of it is unfortunately beyond our control. This has caused many changes in our routines, but also on national and international levels including the education and travel sector, we are part of. Many unforeseen events took place this year that caused a lot of you being concerned about your summer plans that also needed to include our brand, which we are very thankful and proud of.
We took a few weeks to decide on one of the hardest and toughest decisions we had to make in our business so far since we wanted to touch on every aspect of it and make sure everyone has the same rights and possibilities. During that time we have also been in close communication with all of our professors, partners, guests, and business community since we wanted to make sure we understand each of their concerns before making a decision.
By now, we have been maintaining a positive attitude about summer and overall situation, even though the pandemic situation was serious from the beginning. However, our positivity was not enough to keep the world safe and we have witnessed a very severe situation in almost all countries across the world where we see that the measures and situation continue to prolong further.
Our decision has been influenced by the first and foremost reason, safety, and well-being of our participants, professors, team members, and guests. We understand that we won’t be able to be on top of every person’s health, especially when you are coming from different parts of the world and all joining one classroom. This, but also other educational measures countries are taking, such as a number of people in the class and/or in an inside space would all cause many organizational problems for us and our partners, and would also result in program changes such as: less or no corporate visits, guest speakers, case studies, and all the other parts of the programs that were organized in cooperation with some outside organization or partner. They would have all been canceled or restricted and with it, we won’t be able to deliver what we have promised to you when you chose our brand.
After months and months of creating some of the best programs so far in our company history, it has been really hard for our team and partners when we have realized we won’t be able to deliver what we promised and what we worked on – an extraordinary summer educational experience. Since plans/programs/activities, we had for this summer (that needed to include you as well) would have been restricted, canceled, or even forbidden, we have rather chosen the option of keeping our promises and meeting your highest expectations.
One of the further reasons that influenced our decision was high restrictions in the travel industry at the moment. Since the travel industry is expected to ramp up to the 2019 level in 2021, we have seen this as a great obstacle that would cause many difficulties for you such as restricted movements, fewer or no travel options, no visa issuance (embassies being closed) and other problems (airports being centers of the spread)…
While at the same time we were ready in terms of programs and schedules, we weren’t ready to take responsibility for your health and well being, especially when you are a foreigner in an unknown country.
These reasons, with your, our team, and partners’ safety being the most important one have influenced our decision of postponing the programs for summer 2021. Taken all the factors into consideration, we don’t see any other possibility of delivering the best while meeting the requirements and safety measures of the situation.
This decision will allow us to plan summer 2021 way ahead, meaning more time for our team to work on even more quality content, lectures, and other classroom activities you usually see as a highlight of the program. That being said, we are sure we will be able to offer you programs that are one step further from what we have done by now, making sure we create an unforgettable summer experience and meeting your highest expectations.
This being said, we have been working hard on offering you an additional educational opportunity with our brand – online classes that we are currently developing with our professors and partners. Since this situation is difficult enough for all of us, we have decided to give you free life-long access to all the online programs we will be developing in the next months and years. This crisis has made us do it, and we are very happy that you will be one of the first users on the platform! This would mean you will be a vital part of our ABC community, interacting with your ABC peers and colleagues, learning from them, and connecting on both personal and business levels.
More information on this, as well as other operational things, will follow and you can expect them to be in your inboxes very soon.
Stay safe and make sure we are all together working for the better tomorrow!
