Coping in a crisis: How Eurovision Services is handling the impact of the coronavirus [VIDEO]

In an exclusive video interview, Eurovision Services chief executive Marco Tinnirello reveals how his company and workforce reacted and adapted after a member of staff tested positive for COVID-19.

“One of the key things we have learnt is that to not make a decision is much more dangerous than taking a decision without facts.”

Speaking from his home in London, in conversation with SVG Europe editor Will Strauss, Tinnirello discusses the plan that was put in place to keep staff safe and ensure business continuity, the lessons that have been learnt so far, and the possible long-term consequences of the pandemic on the wider sports production and broadcasting business.

Eurovision Services – the business arm of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) – is a media services provider for broadcasters, media organisations and sports federations around the world.
