An iconic city, a hub for culture, music, architecture
Join the 100th year birthday celebrations of Czech radio
In the Finale of Radiodays Europe 2022 it was announced that Prague would be the host city for this now three-day event, in 2023, 26 – 28 March.
Peter Niegel, General Manager of Radiodays Europe said, “We are happy that next year we are going to Prague to celebrate the 100th birthday of Czech radio. It is important as the Czech Republic is becoming a vibrant and dynamic audio market. We look forward to learning about this market and joining our colleagues in their celebrations.
This year’s conference has brought our industries truly back together, we need this for our teams, for inspiration and to ensure that we move forward with our strategies for the future. But, most of all on a personal level we need to join together for our community to support each other. We hope to see you in 2023 in Prague”.
“Czech Radio, or rather its predecessor company called Radiojournal, was the second broadcaster, just after the BBC, to officially start radio broadcasting in Europe. In view of the significance of our centenary, we are glad that the organizers of Radiodays Europe chose Prague as the next host city. The choice is also a recognition of the very active approach Czech Radio has taken in recent years within the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and across Europe in general. We are very much looking forward to welcoming all participants in Prague next year and discussing what we are all passionate about – radio, audio and podcasts,”said René Zavoral, Director General of Czech Radio.
“The Czech name Praha is derived from an old Slavic word, práh, which means ford or rapid referring to the city’s origin at a crossing point of the Vltava river” (Wikipedia) Prague is the hub of central Europe, bringing together a rich history in a beautiful and iconic city which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s well connected to all parts of Europe and offers visitors not only a wealth of culture, music but also architecture and, famously, beer.
This will be the 13th Radiodays Europe, offering learning and information, inspiring anyone working in, or interested in, the audio industry today and tomorrow. The conference attracted 1,200 visitors with over 60 sessions and more than 150 speakers.
For the first time Radiodays Europe was a three-day event with each day packed with take-aways for attendees for their stations, podcasts and businesses. The highlights of the three days included a real focus on diversity, radio in the car, the confidence in podcast strategy being shown in many of the radio groups plus how can we better support our talent to ensure retention.
