The EBU is organizing a so-called “Open Market” blues exhibition. The Open Market is exclusively tailored for all EBU Active Members to present their activities and to meet and greet, informally, other European blues professionals, enthusiasts, fans and friends. We believe that this will give everybody a great opportunity to interact and communicate with other blues freaks, discuss music, make plans of mutual interest etc. The Open Market (as the name indicates) is open for all blues friends and fans to come over to meet each other and the EBU guys. The free stand space is reserved for only EBU Active Members.
