"We’re glad to welcome Austrian Post to the Eurovision Song Contest family as an Official Partner," says Jon Ola Sand, Executive Supervisor of the contest on behalf of the EBU. "With their help, the contest will build even stronger bridges across participating countries and beyond."
As an Official Partner of the Eurovision Song Contest, Austrian Post has been granted extensive media, association, event and new media rights for the upcoming events in Austria. Amongst other activities still in development, Austrian Post will show its support to the contest by branding a significant part of its fleet and postboxes across the whole of Austria.
"The Eurovision Song Contest is much more than a musical show of strength. It is a symbol for a life in peace, freedom and mutual tolerance. The Eurovision Song Contest is taking place in Austria this year for the second time, following the event in 1967. This represents a major success for our country and the domestic music scene. Therefore Austrian Post announces with a great deal of pride and joy that it is an official partner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015," says the Director General of Austrian Post, Dr. Georg Pölzl.
Austrian Post is an indispensable part of everyday life in Austria. Austrian Post is the country’s leading logistics and postal services provider with an annual revenue of 2.4 billion Euros and approximately 24,000 employees, and is also excellently positioned internationally. Austrian Post reliably takes care of its job, regardless of whether letters, direct mail and print media are transported and delivered or parcels are stored and shipped. For this purpose it operates a branch network consisting of about 1,800 own or third-party operated postal service points, making it one of the largest private customer networks in Austria.
The 2015 Eurovision Song Contest is set to take place on the 19th, 21st and 23rd of May at the Wiener Stadthalle in Vienna, Austria. The shows will be produced by the Host Broadcaster ORF in cooperation with the EBU.
