The 86th EBU General Assembly which was scheduled to be held in Geneva in July, will now take place virtually due to the current COVID-19 restrictions imposed in many of the EBU’s member countries.

Following the 84th and 85th EBU General Assemblies which were both held virtually last year, the EBU has decided to hold the forthcoming 86th EBU General Assembly online too.

The 86th EBU General Assembly will  be held online on Thursday 1 July  due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Most of the EBU’s upcomings meetings and assemblies in the coming months are scheduled to be held virtually.

Officials representing both EBU active and associate members have been invited to attend the virtual assembly in order to meet up with their peers and network.
