Networking Session: Fast and Curious!



Come join the discussion and start networking on Sunday and Monday at Radiodays Europe. We are bringing together delegates at a networking event before the main conference, to share ideas, share solutions and share experiences. How does it work? There will be 10 tables with 10 moderators and each moderator will have a topic (see below). Each participant will be asked to join a table (there will be limited spaces, first come first served). The groups will have 10 minutes to discuss a topic, as laid out by the moderator. The conversation will be free flowing guided by the moderator – no idea is a bad idea! After the 10-minute discussion, everyone will move to another table and do the whole thing again! All the delegates who attend will get the chance to join five or six tables during the afternoon. The whole event will take one hour. If you would like to join Fast and Curious please email:
