Netherlands: Starting yesterday, this year’s Radiodays Europe is, once again, the meeting point for the world of radio – the place to connect, share, network, learn and be inspired. This year, the conference is about “A Sound Future” for radio and the growing audio market, focusing on making better radio for listeners while tackling the future digital challenges ahead.
Delivering the welcoming addresses on Monday at 9.00 will be Graham Dixon (Head of Radio, EBU, Switzerland); Stefan Möller (President, AER, Finland) and Anders Held (Manager & Co-founder, Radiodays Europe, Sweden). In four tracks, there will be 55 sessions and 120 respected speakers sharing their ideas and experience of the industry over the two-and-a-half days of the conference. Among these will be: Bob Shennan (Director of Radio & Music for the BBC, UK); Manoush Zomorodi (host of the podcast “Note to Self”, WNYC, USA); Christian O´Connell (morning host on Absolute Radio, UK); Menno Koningsberger (CEO Talpa Radio group, the Netherlands); Guido Bülow (Strategic Partner Manager, Facebook, Germany) and Stephanie Hirst (radio DJ and icon of the UK transgender community, UK).
On the Monday Radio Night will be spent at the industrial-chic hotel and restaurant De Goudfazant. A converted car garage in north Amsterdam, it’s a striking venue for the event which will include entertainment from DJs playing the latest Dutch music, as well as drinks and canapés thanks to RDE’s partners PURE Jingles, RAB and NPO. The conference will end on Tuesday with a finale during which the winners of the Radio Hack Europe event are presented and next year’s host city will be announced.
It is still possible to buy tickets to attend Radiodays Europe 2017 on arrival at the conference.
