RAIN Summit Atlanta to focus crucial industry issues


Podcasting, programmatic advertising, simulcasting, radio revenue, mobile listening, and more will be key topics at RAIN Summit Atlanta, September 29 at the Marriott Marquis. The conference agenda is available here.

RAIN Summit Atlanta is co-located with the NAB/RAB Radio Show, and is held the day before that event starts. RAIN Summits are the preeminent knowledge and networking events of the online audio industry, featuring key leaders and experts. RAIN Summit Atlanta is a single-stage conference, so attendees are not forced to make difficult session choices or miss anything.

The conference keynote speaker is Jake Shapiro, CEO of PRX, the largest public radio marketplace for audio programs. He will shine unique light on on-demand audio and its intersection with radio.

Scheduled panel sessions include:

  • Online Audio’s Programmatic Path
  • Repositioning Online Audio for Mobile
  • Simulcast Strategies
  • Digital Drivers of Radio Revenue
  • Podcasts Are the New Black

Confirmed panelists can be seen on the RAIN Summit Atlanta information page.

While the discussion panels foster conversation and debate around key topics, other special presentations offer deep dives with a more individual focus:

  • Roger Lanctot of Strategy Analytics will present connected car research.
  • Matt Cutair, founder of AudioHQ will interview Jennifer Hungerbuhler of the Dentsu Aegis agency.
  • Radha Subramanyam of iHeartMedia will offer a research presentation.
