Dublin 22 March 2014

To all participants who have arrived or are arriving Dublin soon:

Welcome to lively Dublin
and intensive days at the CCD

The venue of Radiodays Europe, Convention Center Dublin (CCD).  A signature building of Dublin - you can't miss it!

The first delegates and speakers have started pouring in to Dublin – and more than 1300 are coming in the next days.  Some last tips for you all.


Most of you will arrive at Dublin airport.  It is located 10 km north of Dublin. 

By taxi expect to pay around 30 euro. 

An alternative is taking the bus number 747 from the airport to a stop near your hotel.  If it is the Gibson, get off at The O2 Dublin.  Is it the Marker or the Maldron, you get off at our venu Convention Centre Dublin (CCD) and cross the famous Samuel Beckett bridge ”The Harp” to get to these hotels.  Or if it is other hotels in the city centre, just take the bus further.  You can pay for the ticket to the bus driver (6 euro).

Delegate badges

The delegate fee must be paid in before entering the conference.  Unpaid fees must be paid before you get your delegate badge, either in cash or by creditcard online via the registration system which is still open.  A PC for this purpose will be available at the registration desk at the venue CCD.

Sunday 23 between 11.00 and 17.00 the registration desk will be open at the CCD.  A very good advice is to collect your delegate badge in this period together with your conference bag and printed programme.  Then you avoid a potentially long queue for Registration on Monday 8.00 to 9.00, and you have plenty of time to study the material and plan your conference days.

Practical information

The first organized events at Radiodays Europe start on Sunday 23, at 11.00 at the Convention Centre Dublin (CCD):  Accompanying partners are welcome to Dublin tours and Welcome reception Sunday 18.00 as well as A Night at the Dogs on Monday 19.30.

The flow of sessions on Monday and Tuesday

On Monday the opening session will start at 9.00 sharp.  If you must collect your badge on Monday morning, be sure to come early.  Registration desk is open from 8.00 and morning coffee is served.

Even for the rest of  the two conference days it is a good idea to plan ahead. The conference is fully booked and experience from our last event in Berlin is that some sessions in the break-out halls may get crowded.  So - be smart, choose which sessions you want to attend, meet up early and fill up the seating rows from the middle.  Doing this will help to ensure a good experience of the conference for yourself and us all.

New speaker in ”The Killing of a Radio Reporter” – Caroline Wyatt

Caroline Wyatt, from the BBC, UK will join the panel in the session “The killing of a radio reporter” on Tuesday. Caroline has been reporting from the Iraq war, the Kosovo conflict and from Afghanistan. She has also presented The Word Tonight and other shows on BBC Radio.

   The session was set up after the murder in a Kabul street of Nils Horner, a Swedish Radio reporter. Other panelists will be Hannah Storm, Director of the International News Safety Institute and Cilla Benkö, DG of Swedish Radio.

Exciting - not to be missed!

Accompanying partners are also welcome to this very special and exciting event at Shelbourne Park Greyhound Stadium.

Attitude, not age, is the key to reaching young listeners

So says the ex-BBC Radio 1 controller Andy Parfitt to The Irish Times. You don’t have to be 17-year old to speak to 17-year olds, he says, it is more about enthusiasm for the audience you are trying to reach.  Andy Parfitt has a session on this on Tuesday at 14.00.  The Irish Times is one of the many papers, radios and net publications who will be covering the Radiodays Europe.
