The host broadcaster of 2015 Eurovision Song Contest, ORF, today presented the Core Team to be in charge of the preparations. ORF and EBU had their first meeting last week in Vienna where the organizers discussed the first issues regarding the event.

Edgar Böhm has been appointed the Executive Producer. Böhm has worked as Head of Entertainment at ORF and now he will lead Eurovision 2015 on ORF’s side. This year’s song contest’s Executive Producer from DR was Pernille Gaardbo.

The Core Team also consists of Stefan Zechner (Show Producer), Martin Szerencsi (Legal Advisor), Stefan Wöber (Line Producer), Claudio Bortoli (Technical Manager) and Roman Horacek (Head of Press). The Event Manager is yet to be chosen.

The next meeting between EBU and ORF is scheduled for next week in Geneva. Eurovision Song Contest 2015 takes place in Austria between May 12 and 16. The host city and venue will be picked within the next two months.
