5 days left to get Radiodays Europe discount
In just a few short years, the Radio Days Europe conference has snowballed to become the world’s most significant annual radio industry event.
With 1,200 participants representing commercial, public, and state broadcasters from 50 countries – and a choice of almost 60 thought-leading sessions, covering everything from programming strategy to storytelling to talent to technology – Radio Days Europe is also on the verge of becoming the largest radio industry event on the planet.
It would be hard to argue that RDE isn’t already the most important, diverse, and forward-looking radio conference in the world.
Radio Days Europe was launched in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2010. In just three years RDE has become the most significant radio industry event in the world.
The ultimate aim: make better radio for listeners.
The means: present development opportunities and strategic insights for broadcasters – what’s next in programming and formats, audience behavior, digital platforms, and business models?
The difference: RDE is attended by experts and professionals from all levels and roles throughout the radio industry – from commercial to public to state broadcasters – and representing every format you could imagine, from speech/talk formats to entertainment/music formats – to hybrids and niches you probably couldn’t imagine.
At RDE 2013 in Berlin there were almost 60 thought-leading sessions, covering every radio-related topic imaginable. The emphasis is on high quality, informative, candidly open, and practical sessions. And, quite unusually and very unlike some other radio events, there was virtually no gratuitous self-promotion of products/services by session presenters. This was a welcome and polar contrast with “American-ised” industry events. No self-plugging. Very European.
The unbeatable bonus: RDE offers an unparalleled opportunity to meet people from the same industry – yet from radically different cultures/backgrounds and from very different organisations, often facing completely different challenges to your own. That experience of “looking at the same universe but from the inside out, and through a kaleidoscope-app” can spark some of the greatest ideas you’re ever likely to come up with.
