Date confirmed for Podcast Radio’s Podcast Futures event in New York

An international conference is being held by Podcast Radio as part of the NAB Show, New York.

Podcast Futures will take place on Wednesday 19 October at the Javits Center on 11th Avenue in Manhattan.

Full details of speakers, sponsors and registration will be announced soon.

The event follows a similar successful conference in Westminster in February.

Once again, the theme is Getting Podcasts Heard, concentrating on podcast consumption, monetisation, trends and technology, including a special exploration of podcast integration into new platforms and vehicles.

Gerry Edwards, CEO of Podcast Radio, says: “We’re excited to be part of this massive, well-attended NAB Show New York organised by the National Association of Broadcasters. Our event will run parallel with the NAB Show New York’s first day.”

“The idea is to explore the biggest challenge facing the industry right now, whether you’re a corporate player or an indie, and that is quite simply getting your podcast heard. Podcast Radio uses the trust and familiarity people have in radio to help supersize podcast discoverability”.

Chris Brown, NAB executive vice president and managing director, Global Connections and Events, says: “Podcast Futures is an exciting addition to the line-up of dynamic conferences and exhibits in store for our return to an in person NAB Show New York.

“With its focus on providing a unique perspective of the podcasting ecosystem, Podcast Radio offers an insight into the latest trends reshaping audio entertainment and the cutting-edge programming that captures audiences’ attention. We look forward to exploring this evolving form of storytelling with Podcast Radio at NAB Show New York”.
