This is the first edition of the ABU Song Contest to be held on 16- 18 April 2020 in Qingdao. The event is going to be a mega-scale international music competition with more than 2 billion audiences to watch the show. ABU in cooperation with the Host, Qingdao municipality government is in full swing for its preparations.
The host has made a massive plan to host the 1st ABU Song Contest by inviting world class Television production team, huge national publicity, an impressive opening ceremony and many pleasant and attractive side events. Hotels have also been selected.
The organising Committee decided to invite international juries from all participating countries to be present in Qingdao to judge the contest as part of judging groups. In addition to this, the organising committee is also going to invite a group of media professionals from all participating countries as part of publicity plan and as part of judging groups. Moreover we are exploring the possibility of initiating the required technical applications to run the national audience voting mechanism through live streaming despite the time difference that exists in our region. This is subject to be confirmed. For both the ABU and Qingdao Government, this major ABU project has now become an extremely important project, which will be seen by over two billion audiences.
