Radiodays Europe has released the preview program for the 2014 event, held March 23–25 in Dublin, Ireland.
BBC Radio Director Helen Boaden will deliver the keynote address, focusing on how to use industry “turmoil” to revitalize the industry.
Fred Jacobs, a car media expert, will also make predictions about radio’s presence in future cars, and Clive Dickens will address challenges broached by smartphones. Larry Rosin will analyze iTunes Radio, and other sessions will cover apps, how to capture the attention of younger demographics.
Another highlight will be how programming impacts digital transition’s success. This is subdivided into discussions about investigative journalism, music, storytelling, personality radio, creativity and talent.
Money is as important a topic as ever, with a focus on advertising and how to keep clients happy.
Radiodays Europe also announced a partnership with Joburg Radiodays, which is held annually at Wits University in Johannesburg, South Africa.
“We have seen a growing interest for Radiodays Europe from outside Europe, and we´re looking forward to cooperate with Joburg Radiodays to widen our network and explore an interesting exchange of ideas between Europe and South Africa,” said Project Manager Anders Held.
Registration is now open, and members of Radiodays Europe partner organizations are encouraged to register before Feb.10 to take full advantage of the benefits of partnership.
