EBU ends fight for promotion material

by Sietse Bakker 182 views

After yesterday's Estonian press conference, fans and journalists struggled to obtain promotion material. The European Broadcasting Union's press officer Aline Ingwersen watched on the television screens, as people were smashing chairs and pushing each other away to get their hands on the limited number of available promotion singles. It was a disgraceful scene…

Although the decision was made to spread press material through the pigeon holes of the journalists, the Swiss delegation handed out material again at the press conference of Vanilla Ninja, which just took place. However the present fans and journalists managed to behave, the EBU's press officer rushed to the press conference room to keep an eye on it.

When we asked for a quick comment on the 'fights' between fans and journalists for promotion material, Ingwersen said that “a press conference is for press”.
