Tuning In Scotland: See Radio Differently
Wed 8 March 2017, 09:00 – 11:30 GMT
*This event is now sold out*
It's a busy time for UK commercial radio. A raft of new digital stations have launched in the last year, revenue is predicted to continue growing, and new innovations from across the industry mean there is a lot to keep up with.
Radiocentre therefore invites you to join us at Tuning In Scotland: See Radio Differently. We have lined up former Asda marketing chief Claire Harrison-Church and a host of radio industry experts, to speak at the event on Wednesday 8th March.
Claire, who recently made Edinburgh her home, has held top marketing roles at Unilever, KFC, Boots, Sainsbury’s, Premier Foods and most recently Asda. She has developed award-winning advertising campaigns, including Boots ‘Here come the girls’, Sainsbury’s ‘Live Well for Less’ and KFC ‘Soul food’. In conversation with Radiocentre’s Lucy Barrett, Claire will discuss her unique insight into the trends and needs that shape UK consumers’ relationships with some of the nation’s biggest brands; current challenges advertisers face; and the role radio has played across some of the recent campaigns she’s overseen.
The conference will be opened by Radiocentre’s CEO Siobhan Kenny, who will give an overview on the state of UK commercial radio and its relentless work to reduce financial Ts&Cs in radio ads.
Global’s DAX team will also give a demonstration on 3D Audio. DAX is the programmatic buying one-stop-shop for audio and the team will showcase the power of sound when targeting listeners wearing headphones. Through individual interaction, the team will demonstrate to the audience just what an ‘experience’ radio advertising can be.
