ASA Annual Conference 2020 Postponed

Coronavirus Covid-19

Dear ASA members we are all aware of the continued Covid-19 epidemic getting bigger and bigger and many countries are now totally closing down, business being effected, passenger travel scedules reduced by more than 75%,  and the economy of most countries now starting to suffer.

We put the heath and safety of our members as our top priority and therefore do not want to take the risk of asking you to travel later this year even if the Covid-19 is being brought under control. We therfore we have decided to postpone this years conference to next year same venue Pattaya in Thailand and the new dates will be 17-20th October 2021.

We did run a poll with our members last month about cancelling or postponing the annual confernce and had a mixed response to this, but generally members wanted to delay the decision to later in the year but since then the epidemic has gottem far worse.  So we hope you will realise that this is the only course of action we can follow as we must put your heath and safety first despite all new precautions being taken by the hotel to counter the virus spreading.

Right now airlines are offering fantastic discounted rates for travelling even if booked for 2021, so we would suggest this would be a good time to book your tickets for next year,the meeting will start Sunday evening and finish Wednesday afternoon, the hotel is the wonderful Bay View Hotel and has beach access. so why not stay a few days longer after the meeting to relax with friends.

Best regards

Important Notice

It has come to our notice that Global Point Logistics have closed their office in Peru earlier this year which we were not advised off by Global Point.

We had noticed the group had not been very active for some time which we put down to a small recession in Chile.  However it seams the issues are greater and with the sudden closing of their Peru office last month we feel its in the best interests of our members to not continue their ASA membership.


Please make a note their ASA membership has been terminated with immedite effect, and should you continue to work with Global Point you do so not under the umberella of ASA. We will give priority to finding replacement members in Chile and Peru.

ASA annual meeting planned for 18-21st October in Pattaya, Thailand.


Dear members we are just about to finalise our arrangements with the Bayview Hotel as our venue in Pattaya, Thailand when the world has been thrown into chaos re the Coronavirus, and of course we don’t know how long this will run for before a cure is found and the spreading stopped.

We therefore want to ask you all for your urgent feed back on the following points:-

  1. The Bayview Hotel has been most helpful and understanding in agreeing to be our venue for this years ASA Meeting and offered some very good discount on room rates as part of the package.

The hotel has also agreed to not charge any cancellation fees up to 31 days before the conference date because of the uncertainty of the Coronavirus, which I think is very good of them. However as ASA has to put down stage deposits to cover the meeting facility, lunches , dinners and cocktail party costs,  30% on signing the contract (February), another 30% end of April and then a further 20% in August, the balance on 1st October therefore we need to know that members will attend the meeting as long as the Coronavirus has been beaten.

  1. The alternative is we look now for a different venue outside of ASIA and China, this could be South or Central America or Europe, however there is still a risk of the Coronavirus in these places but at present a lot less than in Asia, and hopefully a cure found soon and as its spread is a lot easier to stop it.
  1. The Final alternative is we consider deciding to cancel holding an ASA meeting this year, which would be the first time in 17 years we have not had a get together. This will not help our newer members wanting to meet you and do business with you.

We need all of you to send us your feed back not just one or two of you as this is a very important matter. The last 2 years we have seen our meetings grow and grow and those attending making positive remarks about the benefits of meeting fellow members also the enjoyment of the occasions.

Please let us have your comments on 1-2. and also advise if you would attend our meeting once Coronavirus has been beaten or if you feel we should cancel holding a meeting this year.

Send your replies to by the 19th February 2020 latest.

Many thanks
