The organisers of the Spring Games, IESE business school, have cancelled the event, due to take place on March 20th – 22nd. The following email was sent to participants last week:
Over the last weeks, we have been monitoring the progression of COVID-19 in all participants’ regions and here in Barcelona. After multiple consultations with stakeholders, including public authorities and IESE’s dedicated COVID-19 Committee, the organizing team has decided to cancel IESE Spring Games 2020 due to COVID-19 and the health & travel uncertainties associated with it.
This is a decision we did not take lightly and is a disappointing culmination of 10 months of intense work by a group of extremely dedicated students. As much as we’d like to push through, we cannot ignore the health and safety not only of the participants, but the MBA communities and families that would likely be affected as well.
We have engaged in discussions with our suppliers, venues and service providers to fully assess the financial implications of the cancellation and potentially get refunded on expenses (e.g. deposits, orders) that have already been incurred. Following this process, partial refunds will be processed to all participants. Please rest assured that we are doing our absolute best to provide the maximum refund possible to each participant. We thank you for your patience as we work through this process.
No one is more disappointed than us about having to cancel Spring Games this year.
