Europe’s largest radio conference is heading to Dublin next year and both RTÉ and the Independent Broadcasters of Ireland have welcomed conference organisers.
In an official launch today, John Purcell, IBI Chairman called the conference a “milestone” for Irish radio as it is the first time an event of this magnitude has been held for the industry. He said: “We are very proud to be host partners and we look forward to sharing the unique success that is Irish radio with the international broadcasting community.”
Likewise, Jim Jennings, Managing Director of RTÉ Radio is also pleased Radiodays is coming to Dublin: “We are delighted to be co-hosting Radiodays Europe in our hometown, Dublin. Radiodays is an important forum for our industry and it is exciting to welcome so many colleagues from around the world to what will be an inspirational event and a great occasion.”
The launch today was part of the build up to the next Radiodays Europe which will be held on 23-25 March 2014. Tickets went on sale in November and today’s launch coincided with the release of the first draft of the Radiodays Europe programme announcing speakers including Tony Blackburn from BBC Radio 2, Clive Dickens of Southern Cross Austereo, Kim McNally from BBC Radio 2 & 6 Music and Radio Consultant Lyn Long.
RadioToday is official media partner for the event and full coverage will be available on this website.
Anders Held, Project Manager, Radiodays said: “We are extremely happy to be in Dublin for the event in 2014 as Ireland has a vibrant radio culture. This year the city, the venue, the local events, the workshops and the programme will make Dublin 2014 the best so far.
“Radiodays is the European radio conference and we aim to connect radio professionals from all parts of the radio industry – radio remains a key media platform loved and listened to across Europe and we need to use Dublin 2014 as a platform to promote the benefits of radio.”
