The 2020 edition of the European Radio and Digital Audio Show

Rédigé le Monday, June 24th 2019 à 00:13 | Lu 60 fois

It’s become a tradition: at each new edition of the European Radio Show we pay tribute to a country and its professionals. After Quebec (2014), Switzerland (2015), Belgium (2016), the UK (2017), Norway and the Scandinavian countries (2018), Iberian countries (2019), Germany will be the featured country of the only event celebrating all of the different radio professions. The show confirmed its opening up to Europe and to non-French-speaking visitors with an increase of 35% in the number of visitors from abroad in 2019.

So when is the next European Radio Show? Make a note of the dates now: 23, 24& 25 January 2020 ! This 2020 edition will take place over three days in a location that is emblematic of Paris, a place that is a listed historic building, the Grande Halle de la Villette, which has already hosted the event previously.

6,785 media professionals came in 2018, and 7,500 in 2019, to discover what new products were on display, to absorb and take inspiration from the knowledge imparted by the 230 or so speakers, to meet up (each year the event provides a unique meeting place for all of the trade union and employers’ organisations), to contemplate the radio of tomorrow and naturally to attend exclusive presentations, to meet one another and to gain insights into the latest industry trends.

More than 160 exhibitors showcased their products and services over the three days of the  2019 event, at the very Haussmann-style Grande Halle de la Villette. Below its 13-metre high gables, the exhibitors UER, CSA, UNESCO, XPeri, BCE, Deezer, DB Broadcast, LAWO, IP-Studio, Sophia, Multicam, Axel Technologies, Netia, towerCast, David Systems, TDF, Sacem, RCS, Nagra, 21 Juin, Broadcast Partners, Digigram, WorldDAB,…) spread across two circular areas and more than 4,000 m², answered questions from visitors from the four corners of France and Europe, and promoted their goods and services.

Over the course of a decade or so the European Radio Show (which has continued to maintain a free-entry policy), has established itself as the only annual event entirely dedicated to the radio industry for both technicians and decision-makers. Still taking place in the most beautiful city in the world, the event was held in some very prestigious locations (Porte de Versailles, Tapis Rouge, then Centre Etoile Saint-Honoré) before taking up residence at the Grande Halle de la Villette.

Participating in the European Radio Show guarantees the opportunity to meet more than 7,000 media professionals and executives from France but also from around 50 other countries. The European Radio Show, which takes place in what is always very much a family atmosphere, provides a unique opportunity to meet prospective clients, to make new contacts, and for enhanced networking. The original design and layout of the booths gives each exhibitor great visibility for promoting their products and services while dealing with a continuous uninterrupted flow of registered visitors.
