Third Community Radio Day planned by The Eye

103 The Eye is holding its third annual Community Radio Networking And Information Day in Melton Mowbray on Saturday, 1 April 2017.

The event, open to all interested in the sector, is aimed at directors and managers of community radio stations – those already broadcasting on FM, AM or DAB and those who are applying for Ofcom licences but are not yet on the air.

Speakers will highlight the latest developments in the sector during the formal session in the middle of the day. Topics will include radio advertising, funding, insurance, support via corporate responsibility, inter-station co-operation, and generating income by providing education and training. The full list of speakers will be published once finalised, closer to the date.

During the informal networking time, broadcast and studio engineers will demonstrate some of the latest equipment and provide advice on technical matters. In addition, individual radio stations can share their success stories and there will be exhibition space where they can mount a small display if they wish.

The Networking Day takes place in the Civic Suite at Melton Borough Council’s Parkside offices, in Burton Street, adjacent to Melton railway station. Doors open at 10 am for informal networking and the speaker session begins at 11.45 am with a civic welcome from Melton’s Mayor Councillor David Wright.

There’s a complimentary buffet lunch and the afternoon networking session runs until 4.30 pm. The event is free to attend, but attendees must book a place. To register email by Monday, 26 March.

There will be an evening dinner at the same venue offering further opportunities for informal networking in a social atmosphere, starting at 7.15 for 7.30 pm. A limited number of tickets are available at £20. For more information phone 01664 565315.
