Looking back and moving forward are the themes for this year’s Radio TechCon, held on Monday, 27th November 2017 at IET London: Savoy Place.

The UK radio and audio industry’s technical and engineering conference has announced the full line-up of sessions. Topics covered include the history of broadcast engineering, an in-depth debate on the implications of 5G for broadcast, and a behind-the-scenes look at how the #onelovemanchester conference was transmitted to the world.

There will also be mini-masterclass sessions on Smart Speakers and RF safety, along with updates from the regulator, a demonstration of a ‘virtual studio’ used to train engineers, and advice on protecting your station’s output from cyber attack.

But that’s not all! The conference is keen to encourage new people into broadcast technology and engineering, so there will be a session on how engineers can work with local schools to find the next generation of the technical community. Delegates will also hear the latest research on how object-based audio might assist listeners with hearing loss, and will get practical, hands-on tips on what the AES67 standard means in real-life.

And if that’s not enough, all Radio TechCon attendees will also receive official CPD accreditation from the IET - a first for the event.

The whole day will be compèred by Radio TechCon veteran, and industry legend, David Lloyd. “We’re really looking forward to welcoming engineers, technicians, producers and managers who love radio and technology to Radio TechCon,” says Ann Charles, one of the organisers of the event. “Whether you have worked in radio for years, or are brand new to the industry, we hope there will be something there for everyone to enjoy.”

The conference will be accompanied by a mini-trade fair, open exclusively for delegates, with representatives from Broadcast Bionics, Broadcast Radio, HHB, Wedel, Preco, the IET and STEMNET. Tickets for Radio TechCon 2017 cost £150 + VAT. There are discounts available for members of industry organisations, including the Radio Academy and the IET.
