Location: Paris, France

This 2018 edition will take place over three days in a location that is emblematic of Paris, a place that is a listed historic building, the Grande Halle de la Villette, which has already hosted the event previously.
4,951 media professionals came in 2016, and 5,800 in 2017, to discover what new products were on display, to absorb and take inspiration from the knowledge imparted by the 215 or so speakers, to meet up (each year the event provides a unique meeting place for all of the trade union and employers’ organisations), to contemplate the radio of tomorrow and naturally to attend exclusive presentations, to meet one another and to gain insights into the latest industry trends.
More than 100 exhibitors showcased their products and services over the three days of the 2017 event (exceptionally including one evening), at the very Haussmann-style Grande ;Halle de la Villette. Below its 13-metre high gables, the exhibitors (UER, Multicam, Dalet, Netia, towerCast, David Systems, TDF, Maxi L’Air, RCS, Nagra, Pure Jingles, Brandy, Reelworld, Digigram, WorldDAB, LAWO and others) spread across two circular areas and more than 4,000 m², answered questions from visitors from the four corners of France and Europe, and promoted their goods and services.
This event is free to attend - register here.
