One thing is for sure. The LEDs are back as KAN already reviled it through its tender process for the stage design. A tender which is won by the Austrian stage designer who did the 2015 and 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.
Host broadcaster KAN is running several tenders related to the production of the Eurovision Song Contest event in Tel Aviv. One major tender is related to the production of broadcast part of the event and everything connected with its venue, another tender is related to production of the remaining parts of the Eurovision not related to the broadcast.
Earlier, KAN has also signed cooperation agreement with “Management Production M&M” (represented by Ola Melzig & Tobias Åberg). The decision was taken without a tender, based on the unique experience of the company in question. Foreign company will also be chosen without a tender for the provision of Mobile Broadcast Headquarters.
In the meantime KAN continues the process for various tender regarding production, broadcast and logistics. The tender for the lighting of the show was recently chosen. KAN has determined on tender Lighting producers of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. Dakar Azulay and Ronen Najar were chosen for the mission.
Another agreement was signed with company “Clevergames” – an innovative technology company that develops a trivia game combined with a live broadcast. Their digital product is intended to increase audience involvement in the Eurovision Song Contest.
