The General Assembly of the Digital Radio Mondiale Consortium is scheduled for March 26 and 27 at the BBC Headquarters in London’s New Broadcasting House.
The consortium will promote the benefits of the standard, as well as the progress it is making around the world.
The first day, which will celebrate radio’s future, will be open to all DRM members and invited guests from the United Kingdom and abroad. Broadcaster Robin Lustig will present views on the medium’s power. To register for these events, contact [email protected]

The morning session will be held in the BBC’s Radio Theatre, and attendees will hear why digital radio is “Radio Plus.”
