The organisers of Radiodays Europe have moved the rescheduled 2020 event due to ongoing concerns over coronavirus restrictions.
The conference was due to take place in March 2020 but was rescheduled for December.
Now, the event is set for May 2nd to 4th 2021 in the same place – Lisbon, Portugal – assuming it is safe to do so at the time.
All tickets bought for the original event will be valid for the new dates.
Peter Niegel, General Manager, Radiodays Europe said “At a Steering Board meeting today it was agreed that due to the on going worldwide COVID 19 crisis the Radiodays Europe event will be moved to 2-4 May 2021.
“This decision was taken after watching developments worldwide closely and in consultation with partners and supporters of the event. And, while there seems to be a continued change in the situation across the world it is still not ‘safe’ to hold such a large event in December.
“It has been a very difficult decision to make as back in March when we postponed the event for the first time we were anticipating it would be possible to hold an in person event in December. However, what we are continuing to see is that the situation country by country and within the radio and podcast communities is that quarantines, restrictions on travel and the continued spread of the virus mean an event in December is not in the interests of our participants, speakers, partners and hosts.
“We ask all of you who have purchased a ticket for their continued support, while we cannot refund tickets due to our refund policy however we can change the name on your ticket if you cannot make the new dates, you can do this at firstname.lastname@example.org. All 2020 purchased tickets are valid for 2021.”
Radiodays Europe also announced that although the in person meeting in December will be postponed until 2021 Radiodays Europe will run a virtual “Christmas Lunch” on Monday 14th December 2020, this is in addition to not in place of the main event.
Peter adds: “All registered participants are welcome to attend this event which will bring the international radio community together online for a round up of 2020 and a look into 2021. Further details of this online event will be sent out in the Radiodays Europe newsletter and details will also be available at radiodayseurope.com.”
