Geneva Group announced as EBBC Main Sponsor
The Geneva Group and European Brass Band Association (EBBA) are delighted to announce a further three-year sponsorship deal, where Geneva Group will be the main sponsor of the European Championships, to be held later this year in Palanga, Lithuania.
President of EBBA Ulf Rosenburg, CEO of Geneva Group Tim Oldroyd and General Manager of Geneva Group Brett Baker agreed the three-year partnership at a recent meeting at the RNCM Festival of Brass, consolidating the relationship that began in 2017.
Ulf Rosenburg commented, “We are very pleased that Geneva Group will continue to support the European Brass Band Championships, allowing the organisers to strengthen the event’s reputation as the World’s most prestigious band contest. Geneva’s support to the bands and the event has been greatly valued by all stakeholders and we are looking forward to seeing the relationship move forward in the future.”
A spokesperson from Geneva group stated, “We are delighted to be involved in a festival where the highest possible standard of brass music making takes place. It will allow Geneva Group to spread its brand into countries in Europe that are relatively new to us and continue to support banding at the highest levels as well as continuing to support the youth programme, which is so important to the banding movement.”
