We had to postpone our February dates because of the coronavirus, but the tuktuk is back in September!
Beta will be back in Chiang Mai on September 22-24, 2020.
Next steps (in case you were planning to be at Beta in September)
1. Travel The first thing to do is to cancel or amend your flight and hotel bookings for February.
2. Beta tickets Although we had a no-refund policy, please let us know if you’d like a refund and we’ll make it happen.
You also have the option of holding on to your ticket — it will still be valid for Beta in September. Alternatively, you could donate to someone who can’t afford it.
Either way, email us and we’ll sort something out.
Until then, stay safe, and thank you so much for your support.
