Clive Dickens, Chairman of the Radio Festival, told RadioToday.co.uk: “Once again we have had a fantastic response from sponsors and partners for this year’s Radio Festival, Techcon, Foot in the Door & Hall of Fame Dinner. The breadth and quality of companies shows the significance of the Festival for the wider radio industry. We still have some spaces for businesses who wish to sponsor sessions at the events, but they are going fast!

“We are looking for a record number of delegates during the Festival, with tickets still available via the Radio Academy website. We have had some amazing announcements from the confirmed line-up so far and we look forward to seeing everyone soon at The Lowry in Salford.”
