Hans-Joachim Schwabe, CEO Specialty Lighting at OSRAM said; "The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the world’s largest TV events with a long and exciting history. We are very proud to be onboard for the fourth time in a row and that the light and colours of our Claypaky products will create atmosphere, provide emotions and support the musician in the Altice Arena in Lisbon."
The 2018 Eurovision Song Contest is set to take place on the 8th, 10th and 12th of May Lisbon, Portugal. The shows will be co-produced by the Portuguese EBU Member RTP and the EBU.
