11 October 2021, Lisbon, Portugal: Radiodays Europe announced today that the host city for 2022 will be the beautiful and dynamic city of Malmö, Sweden and will be held on the 15 – 17 May 2022. After more than a decade of bringing Radiodays to almost all corners of Europe, Radiodays Europe is heading back to the Scandinavian region, where it started in 2010.
Radiodays Europe was held for the very first time in Copenhagen, supported by radio organisations in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland.
Some of you will remember the first Radiodays Europe held in Denmark and now we return to Sweden although it is a short train ride across the bridge to the capital city of Denmark Copenhagen.
Malmö, Sweden´s third largest city, is most famous in recent times for the TV series The Bridge written by Hans Rosenfeldt. A joint creative production between Sweden’s Sveriges Television and Denmark’s Danmarks Radio, it has been shown in more than 170 countries. A story of murder and intrigue and worth watching before arriving at Radiodays Europe 2022. And at the centre of the series is the Öresund Bridge, which connects Malmö, Sweden, with Copenhagen, Denmark. There will, we hope be no murder and intrigue but we will have more great speakers, sessions, networking and hope to see more of you next year as the pandemic eases.
There is nothing more we can say about how wonderful it has been here in Lisbon this year in 2021 welcoming guests, attendees, friends, radio and podcast professionals back to our live events and with the added bonus of being able to watch at home online for those not attending, and watching on Catch Up after the event.
Quote from Peter “This year at Radiodays Europe we have opened the doors once again and made new connections which has been more important than ever after two years of quarantine and pandemic. The radio and podcast industries have in many ways thrived however we know that it has not always been easy and we hope that we have brought all of you together to continue the great traditions of radio making connections with our listeners and with each other.
We know in May next year Radiodays Europe will once again be different. There’s nothing that we can change about the past but in the future we know that although changed, radio still holds strong and is the trusted go to media for many. We are looking forward to next year bringing you the flavour of Scandinavia with a taste of Denmark as a bonus!’
Radiodays Europe in Lisbon 2021 had 800 registered in-person participants over two days and 729 active participants online. For those registered at the event the sessions, networks, exhibition stands will all be available for 30 days after the event.
