RAIN To Make Its Presence Felt At Conclave
June 9, 2010 at 4:31 AM (PT)
THE CONCLAVE and KURT HANSON’s RADIO AND INTERNET NEWSLETTER (RAIN) are teaming up to present sessions and presentations regarding programming expertise, business strategies, and technical and legal aspects of the business during RAIN SUMMIT MIDWEST, SATURDAY AFTERNOON, JULY 17th, at the DOUBLETREE PARK PLACE HOTEL in MINNEAPOLIS.
"I'm thrilled that we're going to be working with the Conclave to spend a half-day together looking at how attendees can best position themselves for the exciting new future," RAIN Founder Kurt Hanson said. "My fervent belief is that after three previous ‘Golden Ages’ of radio -- the entertainment programs of the ‘30s and ‘40s, the ‘AM Top 40’ era of the ‘60s and ‘70s, and the ‘AM Talk/FM music’ era of the ‘80s and ‘90s -- we're on the cusp of entering a fourth ‘Golden Age’ of radio, driven by Internet-delivered forms that will offer consumers variety, personalization, and ubiquity of access. In this new era, there are going to be huge opportunities for radio professionals -- in marketing, in sales, in programming, and in management -- plus loads of exciting entrepreneurial opportunities as well."
"Those registered for THE CONCLAVE will automatically be registered to attend the RAIN SUMMIT MIDWEST," CONCLAVE Exec. Dir. TOM KAY explains, "We are also offering special one-day tuition which will allow folks to attend the RAIN SUMMIT MIDWEST -- as well as our other sessions scheduled on SATURDAY, JULY 17th -- for only $179.
"Importantly, the debut of RAIN SUMMIT MIDWEST at THE CONCLAVE would not be possible without the ongoing support and generous contributions of COLEMAN INSIGHTS and ALLACCESS.COM."
"KURT HANSON, PAUL MALONEY, JENNIFER LANE and their team have done an amazing job making their RAIN Summits the place to be to learn more about the convergence of media and technology," said COLEMAN INSIGHTS Pres./COO WARREN KURTZMAN said. "We are proud to play a role in bringing this great opportunity to CONCLAVE SUMMER LEARNING CONFERENCE attendees."
"KURT HANSON has a grasp of all things digital for radio that goes beyond the knowledge base of most, and to have the opportunity to attend a RAIN SUMMIT is an exciting opportunity for every radio broadcaster," ALLACCESS.COM Pres./Publisher JOEL DENVER said. ALLACCESS.COM is truly thrilled to help present this cutting edge event."
