18th WorldDMB General Assembly
The WorldDMB General Assembly is the flagship event of the year and brings together the international digital radio industry.
It offers unparalleled opportunities to discuss the current issues within the digital radio industry and to create a better understanding of the challenges affecting the market. The WorldDMB General Assembly enables networking with the key decision makers as well the opportunity to meet old friends and build new relationships.
Both WorldDMB, and the digital radio industry as a whole, has had a very busy and successful year. We look forward to meeting with you all and sharing our activities over the past year, as well as hearing about your successes and the challenges that you have faced in your drive to bring digital radio to the consumer.
