It is with great pleasure to let you know that we will continue the great success of the second  edition of the Open Blues Market exhibition, held joint with the EBC and the EBU General Assembly in Berlin, last March.

This time, The Blues Market will be hosted in Riga immediately following the General Assembly of EBU:

Saturday 12 April
14:00 – 16:30
Tallink Hotel Riga
Elizabetes iela 24
Riga, LV-1050


The Blues Market is an exclusively tailored, unique and free opportunity for all you EBU Members to present your activities in an informal setting, to meet, interact and communicate with other blues professionals, artists, media and enthusiasts from all over Europe, not to mention the expected overseas blues professionals. We will reserve, based on your request, a table where you can have your presentation and publication materials on display. The stand space is dedicated to you and only you, distinguished EBU Active Members. The only prerequisite is that you have renewed your membership fee for 2014.

The Blues Market is open to all EBU members, guests and EBC ticket holders, and we are expecting loads of blues friends attending the European Blues Challenge to come over to get acquainted with the EBU activities and meet the EBU activists. So why not grasp this opportunity to present and advertise your professional blues operations to possibly the largest gathering of European blues enthusiasts in 2014.

Note the following timetable:

  • Installation: Friday 11th April: 14:00 – 16:00 and Saturday 12th April 9:30 – 10:30
  • Blues Market: Saturday 12th April 14:00 – 16:30
  • Dismantling: Saturday 12th April 16:30 – 17:30
