#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

Hello everyone,
thanks for your patience and here we are with details about the postponement of Jibland5 and JIB11 due to this coronavirus pandemic.
We will provide details on date, guests, Hilton bookings, handovers and bookings.
Please READ ALL OF THIS carefully.


  • JIBLAND5 has been moved to 1st and 2nd of July 2020.
  • JIB11 has been moved to 3rd, 4th and 5th of July 2020.

These new dates depend on many factors and necessities. If you cannot be there those days you will be allowed to handover your pass and extras to someone else who can (please read below about this).


All JIB11 guests have confirmed their presence so no difference there.
All Jibland5 guests have confirmed their presence with the exception of SEBASTIAN STAN.
Sebastian is terribly sorry about this but he cannot be with us in July or for months to come. Unfortunately this pandemic has created problems and changed schedules for everyone, we all know it and there’s nothing him, us or anyone else can do about this. We will surely try to have him as a guest in the future.
In the meanwhile we are doing our best to find a new guest in these difficult times.


All bookings for May (at Hilton Rome Airport and Hilton Garden Inn) have been moved by Hilton staff to the new July dates (example: if you booked a double room for Friday and Saturday nights in May you automatically have a double room for Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th of July).
If you do not wish to change the days of your previous booking you do not need to do anything at all.
If you wish to change the days of the booking or to cancel the booking entirely you have to contact the Hilton (please be patient with them and wait at least 7-10 working days for the reply, it’s a difficult time for everyone).
If you wish to make a new booking for July’s dates you you have to contact the Hilton (info Hilton here)



  • You will be able to handover your pass and extras for Jibland5 and JIB11 from April 20th to May 8th at 6.00pm.
  • You will be able to book again passes and extras ONLY For Jibland5 from April 20th to May 1st at 6.00pm.

Handover require a LOT of work, and as long as it is opened we cannot start working on many details necessary for the convention, so please be aware that you must respect dates, deadlines and the procedure to request it.
At this time you will have to HANDOVER EVERYTHING (PASS AND ALL EXTRAS) TOGETHER TO 1 SINGLE PERSON. With the current situation we cannot have people handing over different things to different people, sorry.

Thank you.
JIB Staff

Hello everybody,
unfortunately this pandemic caused by coronavirus leaves us no choice: we must postpone May JIBWeek to this summer.
We’ve been working for days on details to make this possible and within the next couple of weeks we are going to give you more news about dates, Hilton, handovers etc…
We beg you to understand that moving the convention requires a huge amount of work and lots of problems to solve. So please don’t contact us asking about one matter or the other at this moment, give us time to work and we are going to give you certain news on JIB website and JIB social media as soon as possible.
We have anticipated this statement to reduce any panic or stess you are feeling now, but at this moment we won’t answer questions you may send us about this and we hope you can understand why. Please wait to get all details about this through JIB website in the next days.

JIB12 of next December is confirmed and there is no change about it.

Thank you all for your help and understanding.
