Production 06 is a must attend

Production ’06 from The Radio Academy is set to be a must attend event for anyone interested in music, speech, promotions, news, talent or even production. The new title is the result of merging two conferences – Speech Radio and Music Radio.

The merger will see more talks and more radio professionals attending one single event. It is taking place next week (Thursday March 30th) at BAFTA, The British Academy of Film and Television Arts in London. It will be followed by the Celebration of Music Radio at the Caf? De Paris.
