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 Competition starting with Palanga, Lithuania in April / May this year.

President of EBBA, Ulf Rosenberg, CEO of Geneva Group Tim Oldroyd and General Manager of Geneva Group Brett Baker met at the recent RNCM Festival of Brass to secure the three-year partnership, building on a relationship that started back in 2017. "We are very pleased that Geneva Group will continue to support the European Brass Band Championships, which will make the organisers able 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 moving forward in the future", says Ulf Rosenberg, President of EBBA.

A Geneva Spokesmen commented "We are delighted to be involved in a festival where the highest possible standard of brass music making takes place, this 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 level as well as continuing to support the youth programme throughout European banding which is very important to our movement."
