Radio leaders converge on Melbourne for #RadioAlive2018

Thursday 18 October, 2018

The commercial radio industry’s national radio conference, Radio Alive 2018 is on tomorrow at the Melbourne Convention & Entertainment Centre.

Melbourne's weather has cleared this afternoon and a warm sunny day is expected tomorrow.

Around 600 delegates including on-air presenters, CEOs, station owners, senior executives and station managers from radio stations across Australia and media agency staff will attend Commercial Radio's big day, which celebrates the vibrancy of radio and focuses on forward thinking trends and innovations.

Date:             Friday October 19
Time:            9.00 am – about 4.30 pm, followed by the radioinfo Drinks function at 5pm (it's our shout!)
Place:           Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, 1 Convention Centre Place, South Wharf

(enter at the Pan Pacific Hotel end, it's a long walk from the other entrance)

 

If you're tweeting about the event, use the hashtag #RadioAlive2018, or follow our live social media coverage via radioinfo's Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Joan Warner will open the conference, which features a Q&A session hosted by former ABC Radio morning host and now ABC TV presenter Virginia Trioli. The first Q&A panel last year proved successful and this year Trioli reprises her hosting role with guests Tracey Spicer, Tanya Hennessy, Jonathon Moran & Rachel Corbett.

Drivetime has become very competitive in 2018, and a panel of Drive presenters will discuss the competitive nature of the timeslot, moderated by former radio presenter and now Sky TV host Paul Murray.  The Drive panellists are Ben Fordham (2GB), Kate Langbroek (Hit Network), Will McMahon (KIIS) and Kate Ritchie (Nova)

Also on the agenda are GfK's Morten Boyer (GfK), Todd Sampson, Amazon Alexa Skill’s Country Manager Kate Burleigh and Nova CEO Cathy O’Connor.
