Dutch national broadcaster NPO has announced via a press release that a total of three Dutch broadcasters will co-organize the forthcoming 2020 Eurovision Song Contest in The Netherlands next year.
Last Saturday saw Duncan Laurence winning the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv with 492 points. A significant and amazing achievement that lets ‘Arcade‘ join the list of Eurovision classics 44 years after the Netherlands’s last Eurovision victory when Teach-In won the competition in 1975.
The 2020 Eurovision Song Contest will be organized in cooperation between NPO, AVROTROS and NOS, each having their own role. The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the biggest international events and offers The Netherlands a great opportunity to step into the international spotlight once again.
It also perfectly fits the connecting role that the public service broadcaster wants to play in society since the event has a great range among a variety of target groups for all generations.
The 2020 Eurovision Song Contest will showcase Dutch creativity and media innovation. In thet next few weeks the Dutch broadcasters will be setting up a plan of action for Eurovision 2020.
