WWRS 2012: Not The Same Old Stuff
The 2012 event will focus on bringing together an even greater collection of radio and music minds that will make the WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT, once again, the must-attend global radio event for anyone who has an interest in the world's most powerful medium to break artists, sell music, build audience and generate revenue.
As radio evolves from terrestrial to online, satellite, digital to mobile, THE WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT will continue to offer the insight that will keep attendees on the pulse of the future of this essential broadcast medium and provide the chance to interact with those driving the future ideology and content of radio.
SAT BISLA, President/Founder A&R WORLDWIDE/MUSEXPO, states, "As a member and advocate of the global radio and music community I felt it was essential to bring together a melting pot of positive creative and business inspiration in a forum that would be productive and meaningful to those who participate at the inaugural WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT. Having been a part of the radio family for the past 26 years, sharing new sounds with music fans around the globe -- radio has played a vital role in sharing great talent with the masses.
"THE WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT will once again be a key forum to bring together radio and those vested in radio in a way to ensure this medium maintains its importance as the primary communicator for sound to billions around the world. I am very pleased [again] to be working with JOEL DENVER and his great team at ALLACCESS.COM, who possess a similar passion and vision for radio as A&R WORLDWIDE does: to help deliver an event that will bring broadcasters and music enthusiasts together for the betterment of radio, the listener and the music community."
JOEL DENVER, ALLACCESS.COM President & Publisher, notes, "Everyone at ALLACCESS.COM was so encouraged by the debut success of THE WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT this year, and are very excited to be co-presenting The WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT 2012 with our friend SAT BISLA and his amazing team at A&R WORLDWIDE. We feel that THE WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT 2012 will continue be a vital new opportunity for communication between radio managers and programmers from the UNITED STATES and international markets, all with the same common goal --- to make radio better and integrate creative programming across a growing number of digital platforms.
"We share a common belief that radio will continue to grow and prosper utilizing and branding with new technologies to find innovative ways to reach consumers. In the coming years, it will be even more apparent that radio is no longer shackled by the limitations of its tower-based signal, but has an infinite opportunity to truly be everywhere via streaming, apps and future technologies by building exciting brands, not just offering cookie-cutter programming.
"At THE WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT, we'll once again present exciting speakers who will share their knowledge of radio, digital technologies and successful methods of ways of driving new revenue streams so that radio executives around the world can tap into these rapidly evolving new frontiers of interaction and communication with their audiences. This will not be the same old stuff you've seen elsewhere. This will be another example of must-see, must-hear, must-attend content. We do hope you will join us."
