Next Radio 2018

Monday 17 September 2018 in central London

The Next Radio conference will be back in 2018, on 17th September in central London.

No suits. No panels. No back-slapping. No government ministers: there are radio conferences your bosses go to: and then there’s Next Radio.

Every year, forward thinking radio people come together to watch over 20 sessions where the best new radio ideas are shared. Whether you work for the BBC, commercial radio, an independent production company, a podcast maker or a supplier, there’s something for you.

It’s not just about the UK either. We share ideas from across the world and our delegates come from all over it too. Here are our current speakers.

We’re the UK’s biggest radio conference — because it’s filled with people like you!

Is It For Me?

We’ve all been there – you see something that looks quite good, but then you think “yes, but is it for people like me”? So, let’s try and answer that question.

  1. If you’ve seen this advertised, have come to the site and are thinking about it – then almost certainly this is the event for you.
  2. The people who come to Next Radio are those that enjoy making creative audio (or products for the audio industry)
  3. It’s for people who are curious, want to do more, to know more
  4. It’s for people who want to be exposed to new ideas, things that will help them do better and maybe help them get their next job
  5. It’s for those who want to meet other people like them and build their network
  6. It’s for people who want to be exposed new ideas from audio, but also the online, music and TV worlds

Watch the video above and you’ll see people like you.

Can I get my boss to pay?

Perhaps! Over 2/3rds of the people who come to Next Radio have their company pay for them. If you ask your boss, it’ll show you’re interested in developing your skills. They also may have a training budget and £149 really is a very small amount for this kind of event – other events like this tend to be over £300.
