REDTECH SUMMIT

RedTech International, the global platform for the radio and audio industries, is delighted to invite you to our inaugural RedTech Summit. The event will take place at La Seine Musicale music and performing arts center, located on Île Seguin — island on the Seine river between Boulogne-Billancourt and Sèvres in the western suburbs of Paris. We’ve designed this summit from the ground up, based on feedback from chief executives and chief technology/digital officers at radio networks around the world.

The challenge for radio CEOs and CTOs

The top concern communicated to us has been the incremental nature of radio’s digital transition. CEOs and CTOs alike feel that despite their best efforts in creating a digital footprint as a response to changing audience habits, these efforts lack commitment and scale. Consequently, radio is losing share of attention to alternative platforms and in some cases, is being overlooked entirely by a new generation of consumers.

We have crafted this two-day event to uncover the practical, executable approaches to scale your content business.

Setting the stage

Imagine if radio were invented today. How would what you are providing — linear content streams broadcast from towers — fare in a world against streaming apps that provide interactivity and choices? Larry Rosin from Edison Research kicks off Day 1 with audience trends derived from the firm’s studies in markets around the world. He comments, “The data will scare anyone who is leaning on the existing radio model.”

Facilitators

We’ve invited the former COO of Bauer Media, Veit Dengler, to facilitate Day 1’s Strategy workshop aimed at teasing out real, practical, implementable steps to help CEOs accelerate their digital businesses — to think like content owners using the internet as their core distribution platform to every connected device.
To us it’s important for the Strategy Day facilitator to be someone at the heart of the digital transformation of a radio network — but also someone who now has some distance. The distance creates objectivity — the ability to assess where a strategy failed, lessons learned, new paths available — and the wisdom gained from experience.

The feedback we received also prompted us to dedicate an entire day (Day 2) to technology. It’s critical for CEOs and CTOs to attend both days since it’s clear that the moment you commit to being a content business distributed on the internet to every connected device, technology and software becomes a critical business enabler. The discussion on Day 2 is not about algorithms and coding — it’s about the opportunities, existing and emerging, that new technologies play in ensuring a thriving future for your business. Key facilitators, including Steve Shultis, NY Public Radio, United States; Christian Schalt, RTL, Germany; and Antonio Arcidiacono, CTO, European Broadcasting Union, will discuss the use cases and guide the conversation.

FREE ?

It’s FREE to attend, so who pays?

Finally, our event is by invitation only, for CEOs and CTOs only and free of charge. To make it free, we have brought on sponsors with relevant technologies who, like on your radio stations, will have “commercial time” at the end of each session, to present their solution for five to seven minutes. You’re in radio — we know you’ll respect the commercials because they pay the bills.

What else makes the RedTech Summit different?

Our event is also different in the way we have set up the venue. We forego an auditorium style to create a roundtable. At this roundtable, you sit as equals with CEOs and CTOs from media markets across the world and debate the critical issues, managed by experienced, knowledgeable expert facilitators, who will guide each day’s deliberations to ensure a practical, implementable outcome. During the included coffee, lunch and happy hour breaks, you’ll get the opportunity to exchange ideas one on one with your peers.
