The Salon de la Radio will be held from Jan. 31 to Feb. 2 in the Charlie Parker Center at the Grande Halle de la Villette in the northeast corner of Paris.
This is this first time the event will take place at this location, which offers 3,920 square meters of floor space. The previous three editions of Salon de la Radio were held at the smaller (1,700 square meters) Centre Etoile Saint-Honoré in the center of the city.
With Belgium as the guest country of honor, the 2016 edition will feature four thematic workshops, parties and events. The new venue will also offer dedicated workshop and session rooms, six closed studios as well as a networking area.
According to the organizers, the 2016 edition will feature some 60 exhibitors, 50 workshops and paper sessions. “The Salon de la Radio, like each year, will host a number of exciting events, said Philippe Chapot, show founder. “In addition to the event’s own radio station, which will broadcast during the event, we’ll also hold the Prix ON’R, the RadioPub Awards and the Jeunes (Young) Talent competition.”
The 2015 edition drew in approximately 4,800 attendees of which 10 percent were international attendees, he said.
Exhibitors include WorldCast Systems, PHF Com, Netia, AudioPole, Multicam Systems, Zenon-Media Broadcast Associates, ATS-France Nagra Audio, Eurocom Broadcast, Save Diffusion, WinMedia, Wheatstone, Digigram, WorldDAB and RCS.
Radio World is an event partner, along with WorldDAB and Radiodays Europe.
