We film every presentation at Next Radio, so we can all learn.

There are no panel sessions. Instead, speakers present for 9 or 18 minutes on subjects close to their heart. It’s a pleasantly relentless day where all sessions are presented one after another in a single stream. You’ll look forward to sessions that talk to your interests but be fascinated by those that don’t. And if you hate something it doesn’t matter as there’ll be something new along within 18 minutes!
Next Radio is an informal conference where over 250 radio practitioners can get together, watch brilliant sessions and also have the opportunity to meet and network.
The radio industry changed quite dramatically in 2019, and we took a rest year to rethink how Next Radio works.
