A taste of the RDE programme

One of the great speakers at RDE 2014 in Dublin was Sam Cavenaugh, executive producer at Southern Cross Austereo, Australia.  His theme was "I wish I'd thought of that - the secrets to great ideas".  Listen to his 45 minutes session as an example of what you can expect to hear in Milan in March - and take away a number of useful ideas to your radio station.

2015 Exhibition and sponsorship options

After an amazingly well-attended Radiodays Europe 2014 in Dublin - with over 1'300 high-profiled radio professionals from 60 European and overseas countries - we are expecting a similar, if not higher attendance in Milan 2015. Radiodays Europe offer a great range of opportunities for the radio and related industry to present their brands, products, services and experts in the exhibition area, or through signage and branding options.

Have a look here:

New in 2015:

  • Extended exhibition opening hours and extended range of exhibition visitors: The exhibition will open already on Sunday afternoon (1 pm - 6 pm) and will be accessible to all radio professionals on that day - even those who will not attend the conference itself!
  • New exhibition options from fully equipped standard booths to raw floor area for your individual stand
  • Radiopiazza - a central meeting space in the exhibition hall featuring the innovation forum, the poster area with concise poster sessions, meeting areas, and plenty of italianità
  • 1:1 messaging feature in the new RDE app (active as of February 2015), allowing you to start a conversation with your exact target groups to enhance the value of your engagement with Radodays Europe 2015

Listeners want a fulfilling breakfast

Most morning shows cater too much to listeners on the go

For most radio professionals it is an untouchable principle that morning shows must be tailored for listeners in a hurry, most of them on the go. With bite-sized content and lots and lots of traffic, time-checks and weather.

New data analysis based on millions of listener movements from the official Scandinavian PPM ratings systems show that this long-standing model has too rigid a focal point. Only half of listeners on Scandinavian airwaves leave their homes during the breakfast show and during the 6 AM to 9 AM period the in-home listeners heavily outnumber listeners on the go.

The findings come from ”2014 Autumn Analysis - Mythbusting the Airwaves”, undertaken by Danish radio/software company RadioAnalyzer.

The analysis suggests that the misinterpretation of the listeners’ rhythm of the day could play a major role in the uneven balance of power between public service radio and commercial radio in Scandinavia.

The public service radio stations differ more from the classic idea of building a show you can enjoy during commutes than commercial stations do. With less traffic and more news, less bite-size and more depth. The style is effective, as they are all-dominant during morning hours, while their drive dayparts are somewhat less popular.

This daypart balance is reversed on major commercial stations who perform best during drive. The high-paced formats and more casual content grow in popularity later in the day, most likely because more listeners are actually on the go during this daypart. Thus,  commercial stations are fulfilling the exact same needs they trying in vain to meet during breakfast.
