Who Should Attend?

Interactive Media is Radio's Next Big Boom. You cannot manage it if you don't understand it.
Radio MANAGERS are under pressure to produce significant interactive revenues in 2012 yet most stations across the U.S. are missing revenue opportunities. You would not manage a sales organization or a programming department without a basic understanding yet you're managing an interactive department and probably understand very little. It's hard to lead others in an area you know little about. YOU CAN'T MANAGE WHAT YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND. This conference is for everyone who wants to see a future for radio, including owners, CEOs, Market Managers, Sales Managers, Program Directors, Advertisers, Podcasters and Online broadcasters. Though it's ok to send your IT person, this conference is not about implementation, it's about vision. If you're running a radio station or radio company you need to be there and you need your core management team with you.
