European event puts future of radio in digital age at forefront

Internet radio executives from across Europe will meet in Brussels on Thursday May 23 for the second annual RAIN Summit Europe, according to Kurt Hanson, publisher of “RAIN: Radio and Internet Newsletter.”

RAIN Summit conferences are educational and networking events for the Internet radio and online audio industry. For a decade, these summits have been presented several times each year in North America and feature top speakers and panelists from around the world.

RAIN Summit Europe will take place at Brussels’ Hotel Bloom!. The conference will be a day-long event, including panels and presentations, speakers and networking opportunities for European executives to consider the future of radio in the digital world.

RAIN Summit Europe showcases experts on streaming radio from across Europe. Featured speakers include David Deslandes, Deezer, France; Simon Gooch, SBS Radio Sweden/Radio Play, Sweden; James Cridland, Media UK, United Kingdom; and Ali Abhary, Spectrum Medya, Turkey.

In 2012, the summit was held at the nHow Hotel in Berlin, Germany, and it featured about three-dozen speakers and attracted approximately 200 attendees.
