During the annual Heads of Delegation meeting, representatives from all participating countries receive detailed information about the three shows, the venue, stage design, light and sound. They will also hear more about the event organisation, covering topics like transportation, accommodation and details about the Eurovision Village.
Following an introduction of the EBU's Eurovision Song Contest Executive Supervisor Jon Ola Sand, Zivit Davidovich, Executive Producer on behalf of Host Broadcaster KAN, welcomed some one hundred Heads of Delegation and Heads of Press to Tel Aviv.
The meeting, traditionally held in mid-March, also provides delegates an opportunity to get to know the organisers and discuss creative ideas around their stage performance.
After a break in the meeting, 2018 winner Netta made a surprise appearance, singing an acoustic ballad version of A-Ba-Ni-Bi, Israel's 1978 winning song.
