 Clarifications regarding the cancellation policy 

The GIC 2021 Team Sweden, have received some feedback regarding the cancellation policy. We find it is necessary to clarify and explain the situation, including the relationship to IBF.

 

Background

 

IBF is a non-profit organization who gives the privilege to arrange a GIC to an organizer or team. The organizer/team will use an association or company, depending on corporate laws in the present country. To be able to organize GIC in Sweden the organizers found that the only way to legally do this was to create a company.

 

The economy of IBF is largely built on income from the GIC:s. The deal between the organizing company/association and IBF is that the parties share an expected surplus. If there is a loss, the organizer takes all of it.

 

The Swedish GIC 2021 organizers have committed to perform a GIC for our Breathwork community and to be 100% responsible for any loss, and to handle all incomes responsibly and transparently.

The feedback

 

We have received some feedback concerning our cancellation policy, commenting that it should be different. We have for instance received ideas that we are a non-profit organization and should not think about money.

 

It seems to be a misunderstanding and confusion since IBF is the non-profit organization and GIC 2021 is a company with the task to make a successful event in all aspects, even financially. Even if we have organized us in form of a company, we have been working voluntarily with the event since 2017.

 

Since our main commitment is to perform a spirited GIC we felt compelled to take decisions that were not driven by money. 

 

Let us give some examples:

  • When the dreadful Pandemic hit us last year the most favorable for us economically would have been to claim Force Majeure, dissolve our company and nobody would have got any money back. Many businesses have done so. We have not.

  • When the venue raised their price because of price index we decided to keep 2019 years price levels and take that percentage loss on us.

 

  • After three years of intense voluntary work and planning we have not earned anything and if GIC will not happen, it will mean a huge loss for us since all costs at stake so far have been covered by our joint private funds.

Some people are also claiming Force Majeure and are demanding a full refund.

This is a wrong understanding of the concept. As organizers we are the ones that can claim Force Majeure. There is no insurance against Force Majeure. 

 

We are taking full financial responsibility for the whole situation, and can not do more than we already are doing. We can only regret that this whole situation is happening to all of us.

 

 

Actions and decisions due to the pandemic

 

In the beginning of 2020, the pandemic was a fact. We decided to keep it up and suggested IBF Executive Team, Integrity Committé and German and Kenyan GIC Organizers to do their GIC a year later. And they have compiled. How the situation has developed, we assume that our German colleagues are happy that they have postponed their GIC to 2022.

 

Many people gracefully let their bookings stay after that decision. And no one at that time stated anything but shared will and desire to come to GIC one year later. 

 

 

Final decision in May

 

We have decided that we will go for a final decision in May, and we have presented the two biggest reasons under which we might need to cancel this event,

 

  • The Corona situation

  • Number of people that truly want to come

 

If we decide to cancel GIC, everybody will get a FULL refund. This is our true commitment. Bad for the business but good for the soul. 

 

If you decide to cancel the GIC 2021 yourself, under the terms that GIC 2021 actually is going to happen, our cancellation policy still stands until 15 of June.

 

We hope that these clarifications will help everybody to see the whole situation. 

It is entirely up to each and every one of you to decide which options is best for you. 

 

We do want to perform a GIC for those who feel safe with our set up and we do want to send it online from Sweden for those who for any reason chose not to come. 

 

All the best

 

Swedish GIC team
