Eurovision Song Contest 2022 host broadcaster RAI has announced a bid process for the host city. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) fixed a number of criteria for a host city. For example, there must be an international airport no more than 90 minutes from the host city. There must be more than 2.000 hotel rooms in the city itself or it’s near area. And of course the venue itself is an important thing.
The venue must have a capacity of around 8.000 to 10.000 people. It must have a main hall with the capacity to house the set and all other requirements needed to produce a high level broadcast production. It must contain space for a press centre, delegation spaces, dressing rooms and so on. The venue must be available 6 weeks before the rehearsals start, the 2 rehearsal and broadcasting weeks and one week after the contest.
