Dublin: Meetingpoint for radio and new media headquarters

Seeking for community: Google, Facebook and Storyful

A number of global new media companies have established European headquarters in Dublin: Facebook, Google, Twitter, Yahoo.   In the middle of this lies the top rated Convention Center Dublin which Radiodays Europe this year makes into the European meeting point for radio.  Of course we must look into what radio and new media have to offer each other in this age and city of digitalisation and convergence! 

In a new session on the programme Daniel Sieberg, Google, Evin Gaffney, Facebook and Aine Kerr from Storyful will share their views on what radio can do.

Everybody to Dublin?

We will be more than 1300 in Dublin this year.  That is more than in Berlin last year, and much more than in Barcelona the year before.  Radiodays Europe has really become a must-attend event to a growing crowd of radio professionals. 

In Barcelona and Berlin we were completely sold out.  Even in Dublin the capacity of hotels and our conference halls at the CCD are approaching the limits.  But there is still room for some more!  Be sure to register before we have to start saying no to new registrations!
