Only ten days until EGC 2017 and we cannot wait! We want the congress to work as smoothly as possible, so we have created three phone numbers you can call so we can do our best to help you.

Info desk hotline for general information (during EGC):
+49-175 4707505

Help line for travel issues, in case you are stuck somewhere or you don’t know where to go (from 21 July):
+49-175 4757637

Contact the tournament organisers, e.g. when you know you will arrive late for your round but you want to play nevertheless (during EGC):
+49-175 4706319

Please make sure to save these numbers just in case! You can also look them up on our contact page.

And make sure you don’t forget to bring anything to the congress, we have also compiled a check list of things you may want to consider bringing with you.
