February 10, 2021


Tech company Let’s Get Digital have been announced as the organisation that will be creating a virtual press centre for the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest.

The virtual press centre is being created for journalists who want to cover the contest, but are not able to be there in person due to coronavirus restrictions. Babet Verstappen, who is Head of Communications for this years Eurovision Song Contest has said the following: 


“We are now going to set up a virtual press centre for press that cannot travel to Rotterdam in May. Where rehearsals and press conferences can be followed live for two weeks. Recently, we have been looking for a digital platform in which we could host this and found this in the possibilities that Let’s Get Digital offers. It is important to us that journalists really feel that they are physically present. And don’t miss anything that happens there. It is very special that for the first time in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest we are going to receive journalists in this way. A major step in our online approach.”
