Benidorm hosted the series of galas held to select the song that would represent Spain in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest held in Turin (Italy).
Following an initial meeting between representatives from RTVE and the regional government, Herick Campos – director general of the Valencian Community Tourism Board – announced the creation of a working group to plan next year’s event together with Benidorm town hall.
The objective is to capitalise on the success and popularity of the Benidorm Fest as well as the Pre Party Benidorm Fest held in Plaza de la Hispanidad on the night of the final.
Spain’s votes were also announced from the iconic Benidorm plaza in a programme that was watched by millions worldwide and also worth millions in indirect advertising.
