Radio Fair moves to new spot at #radfest11

This year’s industry trade show, The Radio Fair, is moving closer to the action at this year’s Radio Festival in Salford.

Organisers The Radio Academy say the exhibition will be in the Quays Bar at the Lowry Theatre, bringing it under the same roof as all the festival sessions.

The Radio Fair debuted at last year’s Festival but was in a separate building to where the main programme’s events were taking place.

John Myers, Chief Executive of The Radio Academy said: “The stands give delegates to the Radio Festival the chance to see innovative technological and software solutions, new product launches, financial and legal services, everything in fact to help you run studios, your outside broadcasts and your businesses more efficiently and effectively.”

John added:”The Radio Fair gives companies the opportunity to engage, meet and discuss ideas with executives, producers, engineers and presenters from across all sectors of the UK radio industry. It’s the only place for professional audio products and services to be seen by the people in a position to buy them.”

The Radio Fair is part of the Radio Festival 2011, which takes place in Salford from Monday 31 October to Wednesday 2 November, kicking off with TechCon and Foot In The Door on the Monday. Guests appearing on stage during the main event include industry bosses like BBC Director General Mark Thompson, Global’s Ashley Tabor and Bauer’s Dee Ford as well as Radio 2 presenters Bob Harris and Steve Wright, American radio star Elvis Duran and rocker-turned-jock Ronnie Wood.

For many years the industry place to go to see new radio products and the latest studio gear was SBES, but it hasn’t been held since 2008. The 2009 event was cancelled because of a lack of bookings by suppliers after originally being cut to a one-day show instead of two.

Companies already booked for this year’s Radio Fair include Broadcast Bionics, Radio Studio Services, Triton Digital and Vortex Communications.
