OFFICIAL STATEMENT REGARDING COVID-19
INSPIRE TO ASPIRE EVENTS LIMITED
19th January 2021
Update to all guests affected by events postponed due to Covid-19.
We have been updating guests as the situation changes throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, this is our most recent update and will now remain the companies position until December 2021.
Due to the current measures enforced on the business by the UK Government we anticipate that there will be partial relaxing of restrictions from May onwards, with a phased return to pre-COVID-19 normality by December 2021. At present this is what we are expecting given the information we now know.
We all now appreciate the severe impact that COVID-19 has had on on society and the terribly unpredictable conditions businesses are being forced to operate in. ITAE Group has not been eligible for any financial support from the Government since March 2021 and has lost in excess of half a million pounds in remaining open, therefore at present I have taken the decision that ITAE Group and its subsidiaries have no option but to temporarily halt its live show operations to avoid complete insolvency.
Resuming live tours takes an eight month lead time at least, at present it is unlikely that any of our live experiences will again tour in 2021, however this may change and we will update any remaining ticket holders as we know more. All tickets will be valid for live shows once they are able to resume at pre-COVID capacity, most likely in 2022.
We have had to make the majority of our live events workforce redundant and the remaining few have been furloughed, we are therefore unable to respond to, or process enquires. Once we reopen we will begin working to process these as quickly as possible. You can find a comprehensive list of FAQ's across our concept specific websites and on social media.
I would like to thank all customers who purchased tickets for being patient with us as we navigate this storm, as a business, thanks to our team we have weathered the harshest of conditions but we must now continue to be patient and prudent as we begin the slow journey back to port.
