Radiodays Europe announces Prague as next host city for March 26-28, 2023
During the final of Radiodays Europe 2022, it was announced that Prague would be the host city for this three-day event, in 2023, from March 26 to 28.
Peter Niegel, Managing Director of Radiodays Europe, said: “We are happy to be going to Prague next year to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Czech radio. This is important because the Czech Republic is becoming a lively and dynamic audio market. We can’t wait to experience this market and join our colleagues in their celebrations.
This year’s conference really brought our industries together, we need it for our teams, to inspire us and to ensure that we move forward with our strategies for the future. But, especially on a personal level, we must come together so that our community supports each other. We hope to see you in 2023 in Prague”.
“Czech Radio, or rather its predecessor company, Radiojournal, was the second broadcaster, right after the BBC, to officially launch radio in Europe. Given the significance of our centenary, we are pleased that the organizers of Radiodays Europe have chosen Prague as their next host city. This choice is also an acknowledgment of the very active approach that Czech radio has taken in recent years within the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and throughout Europe in general. We look forward to welcoming all attendees to Prague next year and discussing what excites us all – radio, audio and podcasts,” said René Zavoral, General Manager of Czech Radio.
“The Czech name Praha is derived from an Old Slavic word, práh, which means ford or rapid referring to the city’s origin as a crossing point of the Vltava River” (Wikipedia) Prague is the hub of the Europe, bringing together a rich history in a beautiful and iconic city that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is well connected to all parts of Europe and offers visitors not only a wealth of culture, music but also architecture and, above all, beer.
This will be the 13th Radiodays Europe, providing learning and information, inspiring all who work or have an interest in the audio industry of today and tomorrow. The conference attracted 1,200 visitors with over 60 sessions and over 150 speakers.
For the first time, Radiodays Europe was a three-day event with each day filled with takeaways for attendees for their stations, podcasts and businesses. Highlights from the three days included a real focus on diversity, radio in the car, confidence in the podcast strategy displayed in many radio groups, and how can we best support our talent to ensure retention.
