#JIBWEEK2020 #JIBLAND5 & #JIB11 postponed to December 2020

Hello everyone,
we hope you are doing fine in this difficult juncture, and we’re here with some news about JIBLAND5 and JIB11 to at least help relieve a bit of stress.
Despite all the uncertainty we have managed to postpone JIBWeek to a later date in the hope that things would be a bit more clear and normal by then.

New convention dates will be:

JIBLAND 5: 16, 17 of DECEMBER 2020
JIB 11: 18, 19, 20 of DECEMBER 2020

JIB 12 DATE REMAINS UNCHANGED AT THIS TIME AND IT’S STILL 11, 12, 13 OF DECEMBER.

Are we sure that by December things will be back to normal? No we are not, and we have no way to know now, nor anyone else does. But before anyone asks why we have not postponed everything until May 2021 directly, the reason is simple, that’s not an option available right now.
Most of those involved in making the convention possible (and we’re talking a lot of people here) are unable to plan past 2020.
So moving JIBWeek to December it’s not a matter of not wanting to wait longer, but of not being able to do that. Like for those setting the rules for every country in this unprecedented and unforeseen situation we can only move in baby steps and do the best with the current circumstances to make decisions for an uncertain future.
We are sorry we cannot do more than this, the only thing we can promise is that we are and we will keep doing our best to ensure that sooner or later you will have your time of fun and joy.
Thank you for your patience, understanding and support in this difficult time.

As for practical details:

  • HANDOVER process is POSTPONED FROM SEPTEMBER 7TH TO OCTOBER 9TH. You will be able to hand over your pass to someone else in this period of time if you cannot attend the December dates.
  • HILTON ROOMS, again if you cannot attend the December dates you will be able to change or cancel your hotel reservation from SEPTEMBER 7TH. Your booking will be moved to the new dates automatically in the next months and by September 7th if you want to change it or cancel it you will be able to do so and you will have time until 30 days prior to your arrival date in December. PLEASE DO NOT WRITE TO THE HILTON STAFF. They are working with a limited number of staff to ensure the safety of their workers and prevent other problems, so please be patient with them. They will get back to you in time as of now they are taking care of urgent matters first.
  • REFOUND FOR SEBASTIAN’S EXTRAS DETAILS REMAIN THE SAME FROM MAY 11TH TO MAY 29TH you can send an email to [email protected] with the number of your extras (photo op SSP, autograph SSA, meet&greet SSMG) and your bank data and we will send you back the donation you sent for them before the end of June. IF YOU WANT A REFUND YOU NEED TO CONTACT US IN THIS TIME FRAME. If you are fine with exchanging the extras of Sebastian with the extras of other guests (both JIBLAND5 and JIB11 guests if you attend both events) you do not have to do anything at all and you will be able to swap them directly at the convention, choosing the extras you prefer to have up to the amount of the donation you sent.
  • BOOKINGS FOR JIBLAND5 AND JIB11 at the moment bookings remain closed. We will see if in the next months we have the chance to open them again.

#JIBLAND5 & #JIB11 Update about reopening of handing overs, bookings and refunds of Sebastian’s extras

Hello everyone,
we are back with details about JIBLAND5 and JIB11.
Due to this ever changing situation planning has become really difficult so please be patient with us, we are trying our best with the uncertain conditions we have to take into account.

  • Let’s start talking about the refund of Sebastian’s extras. You are going to have 2 options.
     
      1   FROM MAY 11TH TO MAY 29TH you can send an email to [email protected] with the number of your extras (photo op SSP, autograph SSA, meet&greet SSMG) and your bank data and we will send you back the donation you sent for them before the end of June. IF YOU WANT A REFUND YOU NEED TO CONTACT US IN THIS TIME FRAME, if you don’t contact us you automatically confirm that you are choosing option 2.
      2   If you are fine with exchanging the extras of Sebastian with the extras of other guests (both JIBLAND5 and JIB11 guests if you attend both events) you do not have to do anything at all and you will be able to swap them directly at the convention, choosing the extras you prefer to have up to the amount of the donation you sent.
     
  • About the reopening of bookings for JIB11 and JIBLAND5 we are sorry but we won’t be able to do that, there are to many things to take care of as it is and we cannot grant you this option.
     
  • About handing over procedure for JIB11 and JIBLAND5 we have moved the time frame for it from MAY 11TH TO MAY 29TH to have some more time for you to think about it and for us to monitor the situation.

 
We want to be perfectly clear, when we started to work to move the convention at the beginning of March, July seemed very far away and 4 months seemed a very long time indeed to get this pandemic under control, everyone from services to guests agreed on that. At that time there was no other option and we took the only one available. Now things have progressed again on worldwide basis in a worse and unprecedented way, so there is a chance we will have to postpone JIBLAND5 and JIB11 again if restrictions are prolonged again which we hope to know for sure at the beginning of May.

So far there are no official restrictions announced for this summer (and this doesn’t help with postponing the convention to a further date) but there is a chance they will come and we are planning for that eventuality as well as best as we can. For the moment we suggest you wait before changing any travel reservation (Hilton booking is the exception because the hotel staff has provided the service for free and will hopefully do the same again if we are forced to postpone JIBWeek again) until the very last moment you can do that.

We are sorry that something that should be only a fun moment to spend with friends is becoming an additional source of grief, but unfortunately we all live in uncertain times and planning things is not as easy as it is to talk about them. Many activities providing services and infrastructures for events are already experiencing financial problems and are toeing the line of bankruptcy and this doesn’t help either. So please be patient, we understand your grievances and your frustration and your sadness but please try to do the same for us and everyone else that has made JIB possible in the past decades, not just us in the staff, but all the people who has worked with us and are standing with us in this difficult time once again.

Thank you
JIB Staff
