?New Platforms, Fresh Futures? is part of a series of events under WRN?s Forum brand which has been created to provide a space for broadcasters to meet quickly and conveniently. In October 2005, the inaugural Forum event, a two day meeting in Bratislava, Slovakia, saw WRN?s European client base come together to discuss current issues and developments that are impacting their businesses on a daily basis.
In March 2006 a series of online Forums, hosted and organised by WRN with participation from industry practitioners and experts from the UK and abroad, examined broadcast and platform solutions, new technology, pan-European co-productions and how stations interact with their listeners.
