It is exciting times with DAB+ opening new markets and audiences across Europe.  2017 sees history made with the world’s first digital switchover, starting in Norway on 11 January 2017. Switzerland is next in line, with the process due to start in 2020. EU governments are working together to accelerate rollout of DAB in Europe, building cross-border links to develop a European consensus about radio’s digital future.

This session gives an update on the growth of DAB+ digital radio across Europe, from those countries ready for digital switchover to those in the process of launching.
