100 speakers 50 sessions

Europe´s largest radio conference Radiodays Europe is the place for sharing experiences, ideas, innovation and inspiration. And the programme reflects that with a wide range of topics and almost 100 speakers in 50 sessions in Dublin 23-25 March 2014. Last year Radiodays Europe had 1200 delegates from 50 countries.

This year's theme is Connecting Radio: from connecting with radio colleagues from Europe and the World, to greater opportunities to connect with new ideas and the look of the future. Connecting Radio is also about what radio does best, how to engage and stay connected with the listeners in new ways. And, of course, radio´s connected digital future.
