RealBridge, 2nd -4th July 2021
Previously the English Riviera Congress, this event will take place online in 2021 and for this year only will be referred to as the “Virtual Seaside Summer Congress”.
This congress will be composed of the combined English Riviera Congress and Scarborough Summer Congress.
We hope to return to a live event at a new venue in 2022.
All events are Level 4. The Swiss Pairs is a stratified event.
The prices for this congress are significantly lower than they would have been face to face, but reflect the fact that green-pointed events always attract a premium.
We have been working hard to keep bridge going over the last year, but even with an end in sight we still need to work hard to keep the EBU going. Despite taking advantage of all government support that has been available, making a number of staff redundant and cutting costs everywhere we can, we have still needed to use our reserves and expect to do so more in the coming year when the government support is no longer available.
Competitions are one way of raising the money necessary for the EBU's survival and we will be following this pricing strategy for all our online congresses and major competitions.
