I will arrive in Amsterdam on Thursday actually and will stay until Monday. I will then spend a few days with my family in Germany and then will indeed attend the London Party.
Hope you'll enjoy it there! ^O^ Smart to combine the two preparty's as you have to come from very far.
If you have any questions about Amsterdam or the rest of The Netherlands, please ask!

So I have a question for everyone. Let's just assume you guys will win in May. Do you think it will be between Rotterdam and Amsterdam as the host city? Which one is more likely, would love to hear your thoughts.

Lets not get ahead of ourselves but I think that Amsterdam is more likely, as it is the capital of the Netherlands. And Ziggo Dome is a bigger arena than Ahoy. And they could use AFAS live in Amsterdam as press center/extra stage/etc. AFAS live is the venue of EiC, just 500 m from Ziggo dome.

-edit- Yes this forum is also sponsored by Ziggo _O-

Hi Matt.

I think Amsterdam has the most change to organise Eurovision 2020 due to more capacity and being the capital.

It depends on the venues available. Both Ahoy in Rotterdam and the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam (which is pretty much next to AFAS, where EIC will be) are serious contenders.

The plus side to Ahoy is that it is a huge complex with several other conference rooms and such, so the press centre can then be under the same roof as the arena.

However, the plus side to Ziggo Dome is that it has a slightly bigger capacity and it's pretty easy to build a new stage there. I also have the feeling that the EBU will prefer Amsterdam as host city.

We from Fok forum meet up in a pub in Rotterdam every two months. If we win and the ESC will be in Rotterdam next year, we can show you *O*

However Ahoy in Rotterdam had many conference Halls and rooms integrated in the building, which is very practical die the press!

It might be between Rotterdam and Amsterdam for a little while just for the sake of discussion, but I think in the end Amsterdam will be way more likely since it's the capital and they do have the venue.

Personally I would like Rotterdam to be the host city, great modern upcoming city (and they do have a venue that I think will do just fine (Rotterdam Ahoy)).

Of course, I don't want to jinx this for your by asking this question :). I'm just genuinely curious as I have been to both cities and love them both for different reasons. it is true that Amsterdam would be the obvious choice but I don't think that's a given, remember Germany picking Duesseldorf?!?

And believe it or not, I start planning early, my 2010 planning is already underway!

And I don't think it's a bad thing to dream about it. Just like winning the lottery. It's just fun to think about it, even if it doesn't happen so why suppress positive thoughts? Who knows when the Netherlands will be in a similar situation again so enjoy it :)

Yes, we very much enjoy the current favorite position a lot. Indeed what you say; who knows when that will happen again?
Not once have we been an early bookie favorite, so this is a moment to cherish, no matter what happens (but it sure isn't healthy for our stress levels :D ).

Well, planning is still in its infancy. But I am looking at potential arenas as the most important thing for me is the proximity of my accommodation to the arena. I booked my room in Tel Aviv the day the venue was announced and saved a bunch of money.

Does the press have to book their own accommodation then? I somehow always assumed that was taken care of for the press, considering what will happen if some press teams can't get accommodation.

Matt, what do you think about our chances? Which countries do you expect to finish in the top3 ? Ofcourse we dont know about staging yet, but just so far based on live performances, song and music videos.

Oh no no no no no no no, we get zilch. Everything is paid out of pocket. Which is why we raise money where we can to afford these adventures but it's all out of pocket.

Chances: High

It's really tough to guess the Top 3 at this point but I feel like the Betting Odds are fairly accurate and close to my prediction.

Ok, then I certainly understand why you are planning early. I'm glad you have found accommodation in Tel Aviv though; I've heard that it was very hard to find available and affordable accommodation there.

Rotterdam and Amsterdam are really close in distance and have great train connections (41 minutes with the intercitytrain and quite affordable), so even if you do end up in the different city from te organising one, it shouldn't really give much problems.
