The 29th edition of the Radio Assembly will be held in Athens, Greece, on 27-28 April 2023.

The EBU Radio Assembly is the unique meeting place for senior leaders in the world of public service radio. To ensure the widest representation of the radio community within the EBU membership, Members' senior radio managers meet annually at the Radio Assembly.

The event will bring an overview of the importance of radio and how to keep public service media brands attractive to new generations and young talents. We will explore developments in audio content, format, and distribution, and how they are changing the audio landscape, specifically in cars. We will also discuss the initiatives taken to make the radio more sustainable, diverse, and inclusive. 

The election of the new Radio Committee will take place on the second day.

Have a look at the EBU DDG and Media Activity Report to learn more about the key services (including Radio) we have delivered to our Members this past year.

Take a look at the event's schedule overview and detailed agenda.

Please also take a look at the EBU Representations & Inclusion guidelines for elections.
