Radio experts gather for Asia-Pacific’s major conference
Leading radio practitioners, communication specialists, policy makers and academics from across the Asia-Pacific and around the world are gathering in Vietnam this month for RadioAsia 2013.
More than 40 leading radio experts will deliver papers and presentations in the two-and-a-half day conference and a half-day of workshops in Hanoi from 29-31 July.
Organisers say they will address current pressing issues facing the resurgent radio industry in the region and in Vietnam.
Mr Nguyen Dang Tien, President of host Voice of Vietnam said VOV, like many other broadcasters in the region, had been confronting a time of many quick changes. Social networking was dominating and the growth of mobile social media has been phenomenal.
“No doubt, RadioAsia is one of the premier conferences bringing together leading radio practitioners, communication specialists, policy makers and academics from across the Asia-Pacific and beyond to discuss on how to keep pace with current trends of social networking platforms and better content to keep Radio sustainable and influential,” he said.
As the only international radio programming conference of its kind in the region, RadioAsia 2013 is drawing the attention of major radio broadcasters and other industry players across the world to share their experiences and expertise.
Conference sessions address themes such as: Radio on the Move; Storytelling on Radio; Radio’s role in Connecting through ICTs; Perspective on Regulations, Community Radio and Social Change; the Citizen Journalist; Radio Advertising and Audience Measurement and successful case studies in Talk Radio and Digital Convergence.
