Covid-19 Pandemic Update
Given the announcement from the U.K. Government on the 23rd March, sadly, we have had to face the reality that we needed to postpone our World Lash University event that was due to take place on the 17th May 2020. We are delighted to announce that the new date has now been confirmed as the 16th May 2021.
Whilst this was to be the 2nd year for this amazing event, Julie, Katie and Zoe have not received any monetary rewards for the hundreds of hours that they have worked to organise it. All proceeds have been reinvested into the event so that our guests can have an amazing venue and an amazing experience.
No one could have predicted this turn of events. Like you, we fear for the effects on our businesses too. We sincerely hope that all of our existing 2020 ticket holders will stay with us and enjoy an eagerly awaited and welcomed educational, motivational and inspirational event next year.
The 2020 online lash competition and business awards will still go ahead this year.
It closed on the 7th April and winners will be announced on our Social Media (Instagram and Facebook pages) at 8pm on Sunday 17th May 2020. It will also be added to our website. Notably, this is when our awards celebration event was due to take place.
Trophies and prizes will be dispatched as soon as we can. Timescales will depend on the availability of our sponsors and posting capabilities as I’m sure participants will appreciate.
2020 Ticket holders who have entered the 2020 competition using their free entry will have their entries honoured, so long as they retain their ticket for the 2021 event.
If they don’t, we will invite them to cover the competition or award entry fee or withdraw their entry.
If, for any reason they
- place in either the 1st, 2nd or 3rd position in our online competition, or
- win any of our business awards
and subsequently withdraw from our 2021 event, they will be required to either:
- cover the full cost of the entry, or
- forfeit their position. This would involve the return of their trophy and prizes. The podium will be adjusted accordingly and made public.
In effect, everyone who bought their ticket that was intended for the 2020 event on or before the 23rd March 2020, will have another free entry for the online competition and business awards in the 2021 event. Our gift to you.
We hope that you understand why we need to be strict around the matter regarding free entries for the competition and awards for ticket holders intended for the 2020 event.
Please contact us if you have any queries and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Please note that we are experiencing a high number of messages and demands inn respect of the changes and the closing of the Competition and Award entries that need to be processes and truly appreciate your patience at this time.
