The European Radio show, for expanding your knowledge

At the Salon de la Radio, around 100 sessions are available to satisfy the appetite of the curious, those who come to the Salon de la Radio seeking to expand their knowledge and learn about new development prospects. In 2017 one fifth of the sessions will be in english.

The opening address is traditionally devoted to the radio industry in the country that is the guest of honour, a topic that is developed over the course of 10 or so workshops.
The role of the listener, the choice of mic, branding trends, processing the signal, the keys to successful interactivity, the issue of quotas, the audience… are all current topics covered in the form of sessions intended to generate debate and enable participants to leave with ideas and new avenues to explore and put into practice at the mic.  So, for the visitor, the only problem is making the right choices to optimise their time at the Show.
We should also note that every year several exclusive studies concerning the challenges facing radio will be unveiled during the event.

Continuous presentations and entertainment

More than just a mere show, this festive event also provides an opportunity to celebrate radio – and that’s precisely the thinking behind this occasion: conviviality, confraternity, solidarity!

The three days feature frequent presentations and entertainment this year. Of course, you might think of the evening session (and its special musical ambiance), beginning at 1800 and ending just before the clock strikes at midnight. It’s a highlight of the Salon de la Radio, providing an opportunity to talk radio in a completely relaxed atmosphere. Then there are also the ON’R Multivote prizes recognising the achievements of nine radios from 9 categories, the Radiopub Awards ceremony which rewards local advertising creativity, and the Young Talent in Radio and TV competition… Finally, in addition to its workshops, we should note that every year Pôle Emploi [France’s Job Centre] provides job information.

The Radio of the Show: a product Made in France

For the duration of the show, the Radio of the Salon de la Radio, is the nerve centre of the event and plays host to the exhibitors, public figures and speakers. As you might expect, it’s providing a special, high-quality programme

This temporary station will be broadcast using a video feed operated by, and this feed will notably be available on the site. It’s a technical accomplishment that’s as stunning as it is perfect, enabling visitors to follow the behind-the-scenes organisation in real time, thanks to the service and products provided by longstanding partners: Open Radio (AudioResearch), Broadcast associés and Maxi l’Air. This year, Mediameeting’s A2PRL press agency and the organisation Les Voix will be lending a helping hand to the team of technicians and presenters.
In 2016, for the first time, this temporary station was also broadcast live on Paris terrestrial digital radio (DAB) from the Mercuriales towers site [in Bagnolet, northeast of Paris], thanks to the technical expertise provided by TowerCast, another longstanding partner. •
