Dear EWBC Participants,
As summer is now upon us, with only months away to the EWBC, we wanted to update you on a few bits of information!
First and foremost, it appears that our newsletter hasn’t gotten out to all of you, and for that, we apologize. We believe we found the bug and that all should be fixed. However, in the spirit of comprehensiveness, we’ll add a few reminders in here for everyone’s benefit.
We understand that many of you are awaiting details on discounted flights, and we apologize for the delay. We are working hard behind the scenes to get the absolute BEST deal possible and will announce details in the coming days. Thank you again for your patience!
We have just created a newsletter archive for those interested in previous updates.
