NEP Group Eurovision Unidad Movil

Once again, the Eurovision Song Contest will be produced by United and NEP. The 2021 edition of the festival will be held at the Rotterdam Ahoy pavilion from May 18-22.

Both companies are commissioned by NOS to handle the multi-camera production of the two semi-finals and the final, including the set-up of all technical facilities, equipment and material. In charge of the overall production of the event, that will be watched by 200 million viewers, are NPO, NOS, AVrotros and EBU.

Ralf van Vegten, Managing Director of NEP, is proud to be in charge of this significant event for the European public, while confirming that he will manage the production of graphics and augmented reality: “Eurovision is of unknown scale, complexity and range, so we’re very honored to be involved again. NEP also develops and delivers the graphics and AR elements, which are being controlled by our own software and crew.”

“The Eurovision Songfestival is finally an event that connects people and something the public is really looking forward to. That’s why the expectations and quality standards are higher than ever before. To match these expectations, we will deploy the finest technical solutions, equipment and the best crew to meet the highest quality standard and to ensure that this will be an unforgettable event”, he adds.

René Delwel, CEO of United, adds: “It’s nice to see how the two companies are working together as one team for this enormous event. We consider the 65th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest to be very unique and of great national importance. Our people are very aware of that and work hard to deliver the best solutions and results. In organizing the Eurovision Song Contest, the largest European entertainment show with approximately 200 million viewers, the Netherlands will place itself on the international map. This is a unique chance that we seize with both hands.”
