ISRAEL – The EBU has confirmed that this year there will be no traditional pigeon holes, where the accredited journalists and country delegates would put their material, such as promo, etc.,
The reason for this change this year is to modernize the exchange of information between artists, missions and the press.
According to the EBU, the aim is to create a “greener environment producing minimal waste wherever possible”. It’s also a pervasive optimism for a digital approach to the event for the coming years!
EBU statement: “It has been decided that pigeon holes will no longer be made available in the press centre in an effort to modernize and streamline the exchange of information between artists, delegations and the press. The EBU is dedicated to creating a greener environment by producing minimal waste wherever possible and we are excited to usher in a digital first approach for years to come! We understand that many of those attending will miss the tradition of pigeon holes, but we hope that everyone will welcome a greener, quicker and modernised approach in its place.”
