Other things on the agenda include a showcase of commercial radio stations’ social action campaigns, an update on Radioplayer a look at the emotional power of radio from representatives of the RAB.

Andrew Harrison, CEO of RadioCentre, told “This year’s conference tackles some fundamental issues for our industry, in particular the forthcoming Communications Bill, as well as the symbiotic relationship between radio and the music industry, giving our members the chance to hear directly from the people making the policy.”

The conference is free to attend by anyone from a member station or company of RadioCentre, although places have to be booked.
