2020 APAC Regional Convention

-Japan Kobe- APAC Convention

Dear Young Living Asia, Pacific Members,

Mary and I have been looking forward to being with all of you at the APAC Convention. As we’ve followed escalating health and travel concerns related to the novel coronavirus outbreak our excitement for this event has been replaced by a sense of concern. It is with deep regret and an uncompromising commitment to our members’ safety that the company has decided to postpone the APAC Convention, originally scheduled for March 27¬–30, 2020.

Numerous factors informed this decision, including a fundamental concern for the health and safety of all those working at and attending the Convention; the escalating difficulties complicating international travel; and the now-standard practice of organizations to avoid, limit, or cancel large events and gatherings as additional safety precautions. It is our hope that conditions will improve with time and allow for us to host the APAC Convention at the same location at a date later this year. As we monitor conditions with a high priority on safety, will keep you informed with any updates.

Our thoughts are with those affected by the recent coronavirus outbreak and the reaction that has swelled around the world, particularly for our friends in Asia. The decision to postpone Young Living’s APAC Convention in Japan was an extremely difficult one for us. We explored every other possible option before doing so, gathering advice and expertise from local offices, government-related consultants, and field leaders. We are aware of the important role that APAC Convention has for Asian markets with exciting new launches, powerful messages, and opportunity to gather as Young Living global family. Unfortunately, the sudden outbreak and rapid rise in escalation for health and travel concern has radically changed the situation.

We are deeply grateful to our loyal members, business partners, and local employees all over the world—particularly in Asia—who have stood by our side, lent their support, and helped us come to this informed but difficult decision.

Going forward, your local market offices will be reaching out to you to share specific plans and to help manage teams and members affected. We will also be looking for ways to help impart some of the exciting Convention spirit and announcements that were planned for Kobe, and which will also be shared by and through your local corporate teams.

We look forward to seeing and meeting with you soon and wish you the best in health and prosperity during this challenging time.
