Another cultural forum was hosted at Eger City Hall on March 16, 2017

Karen Murgatroyd, manager of international relations from Leeds was also a key participant, who shared her impressions regarding preparations undertaken for the tender in Leeds and the title of ECoC2023 in general. We were also regaled with a personal account of the opening ceremony of the Cypriot town of Paphos, one of the Capitals of Culture in 2017.

The Local Government of Eger invited the heads of the surrounding towns for a professional discussion in March 2017

We are glad that you were all open to cooperation and the sharing of ideas.
