The congress webpage is assigned to the German congress: http://www.egc2017.eu/
Martin Stiassny, EGF president, explains his view on the previous months: http://www.eurogofed.org/egc/2017/perso ... GC2017.pdf
It reads "sponsors, sponsors, sponsors" and neglects tournament organisation and responsibility for participants in view of the human rights / political situation in Turkey. If the quality of EGCs is as important for Asians as he wants, he should not measure quality by amount of money and noise / food of an opening ceremony but mainly by the quality of overall congress and tournament organisation, which is not / hardly measured by money.
Anyway, it is nice that finally organisation of the congress in Germany can start meaningfully.
