This year’s Radio International Relations Plenary will be held on 3 and 4 October at the Palazzo dell'Acquedotto Pugliese, Bari, Italy, at the kind invitation of Rai and the Prix Italia.

The meeting will span two working days, starting on Tuesday 3 October 09:30 and ending on Wednesday 4 October 16:00. 

The Plenary is a unique opportunity for the EBU Radio International Relations community to gather to exchange best practices, update on EBU initiatives and discuss the impact of current challenges on our work. This meeting plays a key role in strengthening collaboration between public service radio organizations and ensuring the flow of information between Members and the EBU.

NEW! This year’s event will also be open, for the first time, to all International Relations experts from EBU Members.


The meeting will kick off with a networking drink on Monday 2 October at a location TBC and hosted by the Prix Italia.

Day 1, on 3 October, will mainly focus on radio, including updates from the EBU Music team, EBU News, EBU Radio Sports Group, and a brief check-in with the technical/contact engineers. In addition, there'll be breakout sessions on various topics of your interest. We've also planned a session covering various aspects of Digital, including podcasts, the work of the groups and Digital Committee, current trends, and the future of radio and audio.

Participants are then invited to join the networking dinner.

Day 2 of the Plenary, 4 October, will cover broader topics relevant to all International Relations professionals.

We'd like to encourage all International Relations colleagues to join us, as we will cover subjects of interest to not only the radio community but all public service media colleagues. Topics will include strategy, data collection and usage, stakeholder management, etc. Two EBU projects will also be presented: A European Perspective, a project already underway with many Members participating, and an up-and-coming Sports Digital platform, still in the development phase with significant potential for Members.

The afternoon will be largely dedicated to a practical workshop aimed at identifying priorities and common areas of interest to the wider international Relations community.
