Communications Minister Ed Vaizey and the BBC’s Head of Radio Helen Boaden will address guests at the year’s RadioCentre Members Conference.
They’re expected to focus on a range of issues vital to radio’s future development, including how it fits into the broader digital media landscape, the way it is embracing new opportunities and how this can be encouraged and supported.
The event will be chaired by former BBC media correspondent Torin Douglas, and will also hear from Michael Hill, Managing Director of Radioplayer about the challenge of ensuring radio retains a strong presence on connected devices and in cars. In addition, Cathal Naughton, Chief Operating Officer of blinkbox music, will provide a perspective on behalf of the music streaming service, owned by Tesco.
It will be the first conference to take place under the leadership of new RadioCentre CEO Siobhan Kenny, who will outline some of her first impressions of the radio industry and emerging plans for the future.
Siobhan Kenny said: “We have a fantastic line-up of speakers at this conference. I am really looking forward to it, as well as the chance to meet up with commercial radio operators from all over country.”
The conference is FREE to attend for anyone who works for a RadioCentre member company and will take place in the afternoon of Thursday 3 July 2014 at the Westminster Bridge Park Plaza before the Arqiva Awards.
