A separate bistro-bar welcomes delegates for a coffee break, an aperitif or a snack at any time during the exhibition opening hours. On Monday and Tuesday, the exhibition hall will also accommodate the catering buffets in the networking breaks between sessions.

The three tours

Our local partners offer three tours for different interests.  All tours are free of charge, preregistration is recommendable to ensure you get a place (they will be filled by "first come, first serve"), but you can also check for vacant places when you come to MiCo to collect your badge on Sunday.  All tours leave from MiCo between 1300 and 1600 and return to the venue of the Radio City festival and the Radiodays Europe Welcoming Reception.

The Welcoming Reception at the Factory

Dublin 2014 to Milan 2015 - The Music

German producer Robin Schulz has been our soundtrack for the journey from Dublin to Milan! His remixes of Dutch artist Mr. Probz with Waves and Israeli-French duo Lilly Wood and the Prick with Prayer in C have been played a staggering 1 million times on European radio since Radiodays Europe 2014 left the Guinness and the dogs behind. "These two tracks alone have been heard over times by radio listeners across Europe in the past 12 months. Radio loves music, music loves radio", reports Radiomonitor, one of Radiodays Europe's 2014 and 2015 commercial partners. 

The full "Radiomonitor Dublin to Milan Airplay Chart" will be in this year's delegate bag.
