Sunday Evening Welcome Event: Time Out Market - Mercado da Ribeira

Hosted by Lisbon's Municipality, Tourism of Portugal and Tourism of Lisbon & Powered by SEAT



You are invited to discover the heart of food & culture in Lisbon!  Metro stop: Cais do Sodré (Green Line) Arguably one of the most famous food markets in Lisbon, the Time Out Market was created in 2014 by a group of journalists with a vision to house the best food vendors in Portugal. With 26 restaurants, a dozen shops, 8 bars and a high end music venue, as well as the best steaks, sushi and hamburgers in Lisbon the venue is a perfect combination of culture and food, bringing all the best under one roof. The Mercado da Riberia (the markets themselves) have actually been active since 1882, where they housed the city’s main wholesale market. After the markets themselves moved location in 2000, the structure became derelict until Time Out took over and created the iconic Time Out Markets in 2014.  Radiodays Europe and our hosts Lisbon's Municipality, Tourism of Portugal and Tourism of Lisbon & Powered by SEAT welcome you to Lisbon 2020!

Rune Born Schwartz, (Head of Innovation, Bauer Media, Denmark)Joe Copeman (Global SVP Sales and Managing Director United Kingdom), Mike Newman (Head of UK Content Partnerships, Audioboom, United Kingdom) Can you maximize podcast revenue without cannibalizing your radio revenue?  How do you sell podcasts and is it possible for radio and podcasts to financially co-exist in harmony?  The growth of podcasts has resulted in an additional revenue stream for some, an additional advertising and sponsorship opportunity for others but is there a middle ground? Is there too much focus on monetisation from a podcast only perspective and do radio stations appreciate the difference between selling spot advertising and selling podcasts? As broadcasters we need to have a more holistic approach. When we combine the storytelling strengths of podcast with the massive reach of radio we are able to build truly effective branding campaigns in audio.

In fact, women in technology are greatly underrepresented within the industry and largely ignored as a discussion point. This session will look into the Women in Tech + Radio initiative driven by DAVID Systems. Why was it started, how was it developed and why do we believe this is an important initiative for the industry. What's in it for all of us, and how do we get more people involved in the initiative? Let's work together to make technology in Radio attractive to all.

Mark Barber MBE (Planning Director, Radiocentre UK)Mary Hoogerbrugge (Marketing Positioning Consultant, Netherlands)Gavin Deans (Media Central, Ireland) Emma O’Doherty (Chief Client Officer, Mediacom, Ireland) Radio advertising works but how do we share its impact and effectiveness with advertisers, brands and agencies and ensure radio is positioned properly in a crowded media market? Other people’s money: helping radio take a bigger bite from brand budgets. Advertisers have historically used radio predominantly as a tactical medium, getting promotional messages to air quickly and efficiently, but remains underused as a brand-building medium. Mark Barber’s presentation explores data from the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising, UK, underpinned by findings from Radiocentre’s research portfolio to help radio owners make the case to advertisers to use radio to build their brand in addition to driving short-term metrics, expanding use cases and opening up new revenue opportunities. Having heard the theory the second half of this session will focus on the strategy to ensure you position yourself properly in a crowded media market and also a case study on how radio can plan and execute an effective campaign.

Monday Evening Event Cineteatro Capitólio - Hosted by Lisbon's Municipality, Tourism of Portugal and Tourism of Lisbon & Powered by SEAT

Hosted by Lisbon's Municipality, Tourism of Portugal and Tourism of Lisbon & Powered by SEAT



After 30 years of closure, the cultural landmark of Lisbon and greater Portugal is reopening its doors. The Cineteatro Capitólio is located in Parque Mayer and is considered a major landmark in the history of Lisbon, and Portugal. The history of the theatre is connected to the political, social and intellectual developments of the capital and of Portugal as it played a role as the main cultural venue from the 1930s to the 1980s. Not only for its historical role, the building is also unique in its distinctive architectural style. The modernist style is recognised internationally and hence has been a national landmark since 1983.   Parque Mayer was like the Lisbon’s “Broadway” with a block of popular ancient theaters, endowed with restaurants, carousels, terraces, pavilions, houses of fado, exhibited cinema and wrestling. By the 50’s and 60’s of last century, it was a place of bohemia par excellence, where so much occurred. The first theater opened in 1922. Capitólio itself was built originally in 1931. After decadent decades, more recently the place returned to a renew its life. From the very beginning, the project has featured the collaboration of numerous institutions and partners that represent a seal of quality, confer recognition and dignify the theatre, constituting an essential starting point for the re-launch of the Cineteatro Capitólio brand.  This cultural and historical centre of Lisbon is the perfect place to gather for Monday Radio Night and main social event.

The moment interview – enhance the moment

Torben Brandt (Editor in Chief, P1, DR, Denmark)   Learn and feel “The Moment Interview”. A live in-practice demonstration of the method by one of the most experienced interviewers in Denmark.



Torben Brandt (Editor in Chief, P1, DR, Denmark)   Learn and feel “The Moment Interview”. A live in-practice demonstration of the method by one of the most experienced interviewers in Denmark. Storytelling on radio draws on memories and flashbacks. Sometimes an entire story is built on memories. The ‘Moment Interview’ technique brings you – the audience - and the storyteller back into the drama scene or the ‘now’.  In a collaboration with an interviewee - the method will be demonstrated live, in front of the Radiodays Europe audience, bringing his or her story to life. Reconstructing the drama, the movements, the smell, the words and the thoughts of the story. Torben Brandt will take a chance by conducting a Moment Interview on stage with minimal research. Usually he can develop 1-2 moments. Enough to understand the story - and more importantly - the method!

Disaster Recovery and Evolving Cloud Strategy

Philippe Generali (President & CEO, RCS Worldwide, United States) RCS and its cloud-based  technology can provide a crucially important insurance policy to prevent dead air



Philippe Generali (President & CEO, RCS Worldwide, United States) RCS and its cloud-based  technology can provide a crucially important insurance policy to prevent dead air If something disables your radio station, Zetta Cloud takes over, allowing you to stream your station’s audio directly (via Revma) from the Cloud to your transmitter, web stream or emergency studios. When your station is ready to resume normal service, it takes just a couple of minutes for Zetta Cloud to return you to normal service. But disaster recovery is just the beginning. Radio is changing and many broadcasters believe that strategy must also change to take advantage of the latest cutting-edge technology.
