A Sound Future


120 top speakers will share their ideas and experience over a content-packed 2.5 days, starting on Sunday afternoon.

This year´s theme is ‘A Sound Future’. How do we secure a great future for radio, in a competitive digital media market? What is the sound of the future that will fascinate audiences? How will the new players, coming into the “audio market” – like Facebook,  Google and Spotify – influence our future? “Radiodays Europe” has this year a wider perspective on the audio market, not just traditional radio. We are becoming “Audio Days” as much as “Radio Days”. You will still get the wide overview of developments in radio with programmers sharing their ideas and experiences. You will hear the visions of leading radio executives, gain insight from experts on digital and business and learn about successful formats.
