Ahead of World Choir Games 2021 commencing in Flanders this weekend (October 30 – November 7), INTERKULTUR – the world’s leading organiser of international choir competitions – has already seen strong interest in the European Choir Games hosting opportunities for 2023 and 2025.

The European Choir Games – the European Championships of singing – is an 8-day festival that brings together 8,000 participants from over 50 countries from across Europe and beyond.

Through a newly launched host procurement process, INTERKULTUR will appoint host partners for the 2023 and potentially 2025 editions of the European Choir Games and have partnered with London based agency The Sports Consultancy (TSC) to run the bidding process.

In partnership with each host, INTERKULTUR will co-create as much of a bespoke, multi-dimensional partnership as possible to uniquely showcase each host’s destination, deliver choral and cultural legacies and drive visitation – with 90% of participants attending from outside the host market, the total economic impact of the event is independently estimated at approx. €10 million.

INTERKULTUR has received a total of 20 Expressions of Interest for 2023 and 2025 and we are now moving through to the Candidate phase of the process.

There is however still time for other cities to join the process – interested cities should contact host@europeanchoirgames.com to receive further information on the hosting opportunities.
