Registration is now open for the 2014 Public Radio Engineering Conference.
The event is organized by the Association of Public Radio Engineers. PREC14 will be held April 3–4, at Caesars Palace, in Las Vegas, concurrent with the PBS Tech-Con sessions and immediately preceding 2014 NAB Show.
The theme of this year’s event is “Engineering in an increasingly IP environment.” APRE President Paxton Durham tells Radio World that content from a variety of industry leaders is planned, along with updates from NPR’s PRSS on Content Depot and reports from NPR Labs. Durham is also CE for WVTF(FM), Roanoke, Va.
APRE members receive a $30 discount on conference registration fees and nonmembers will receive a free one-year membership in APRE with paid registration.
Discounted NAB show registration is available as part of a package with PREC registration for employees of NAB member stations, courtesy of NAB and PBS. This offer expires Feb. 21.
Discounted rooms are available at Caesars Palace for the duration of PREC and the NAB convention starting at $189/night. Reservations must be made by Feb. 26.
