COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT

  • February 25:
    Dear All,
    We hope this message finds you well.
    We know that some of you may be worried about how Caliente Tango Marathon might be affected by the recent global developments related to the spread of COVID-19. The good news is that, as of today, only one case of infection by the virus have been reported in Turkey. We hope, although we cannot be certain, that the situation will remain unchanged and not get worse.
    Keeping in mind also that Caliente is scheduled for the end of May, which is still almost three months away and that more than 350 participants have registered for the event and most of them have already bought their tickets and their hotel reservations have been paid for, we as organizers feel that it would be premature to take any action at the moment. Therefore, we are currently continuing the organization of Caliente as planned.
    Rest assured that we will take necessary steps if needed in the future.
    For now, we hope that in the weeks and months to come, the situation will calm down, that things will get back to normal, and that we will enjoy the sea, the sun and tango.Fingers crossed!
  • April 13:
    Dear All,
    As we said in our past announcements regarding Caliente Tango Marathon, we did not want to act prematurely, fearing that we might make a decision unwarranted by the situation. We believe that it is still uncertain whether the situation will get better or worse by the end of May. However, at the moment it seems unlikely that international flights will be established again, and we are not certain that people will be prepared to mingle in large groups that soon.
    On the other hand, we all miss tango and are looking forward to living a normal life, unhindered by the quarantine and social distancing rules. We believe that an event like Caliente is a perfect opportunity for this. This is why we tentatively decided to postpone Caliente to August 27-31, 2020. However, we will continue to monitor the situation until mid-July and will organize Caliente at the end of August only if life gets back to normal and holding the event will not put anyone at risk.
    In case Caliente 2020 is held in August, as a participant, you can choose to attend Caliente in August, in which case your payment will carry over from May to August. If for whatever reason you choose not to attend Caliente in August and cancel your participation, your payment will be returned to you. (but please, see the details below). You have time until August 1st to let us know your decision.
    If by mid-July the situation is still not settled, we will cancel Caliente this year and plan it for 2021. If Caliente 2020 is cancelled, as a participant, you can choose to use your payment for the next year’s event. In this case, your money will stay with us and will be used for your participation in Caliente 2021. If you choose this option, you will receive a 10% discount for Caliente 2021 (based on next year prices), as a sign of our gratitude for your support. If you do not want to use your payment for Caliente 2021, you can ask for a refund. Your money will be refunded to you.
    Finally, we would like to address the issue of refunds. So far, approximately 340 people registered for Caliente. Around 270 people made cash payments (full or partial), the rest sent us their plane tickets as proof that they are planning to attend. All payments that we have received were transferred to the hotel to reserve your rooms. For those who did not make payments, but sent the plane tickets, we, the organizers, paid the hotel to reserve the rooms. Last week, through the travel agency that we work with, we agreed with the hotel to refund your (and our) money. However, given the difficulties that the pandemic caused in the operation of hotels, most hotels are asking support from the government. So they need some time to be able to return the money to us and we will, most probably, have to wait a bit. Nothing else can be done at the moment. Hopefully, we will get the money back from the hotel sooner rather than later. As soon as we receive the money, based on your decision, we will either keep it for August (or next year) or return it back to you. Please do not worry, we are working for your best interest. We, everybody, just need a little bit more time. Once we have received the refund from the hotel, we will email each of you and ask for your preference as to what to do with your payment.
    Thanks for your understanding in these difficult times! We will be in touch with you again in a month or so (or sooner, if we receive the refund).
