New Radio Day 2016

This is the annual meeting of those involved in creating the future of the radio medium, and dedicated to showcasing latest innovations from across radio, as well as providing time for debate and the exchange of ideas. 

The theme for 2016 will be: Building on Success: enhancing the live radio experience

Clearly, live radio remains the core experience for most listeners, despite the increasing options to consume radio using new devices. The objective on this occasion is to demonstrate and share innovative ideas around how this live, linear radio experience can be enhanced, in the year which has seen the launch of the LG DAB+ smartphone. The ingenuity in this area is testimony to the flexibility and strength of our medium. A great variety of topics will be covered from social media to connected cars and new radio apps, as well as recent perspectives from across the Atlantic. Do make sure you can be with us in Madrid on those days.
