Radio TechCon 2021 takes place on Monday, 29th November 2021.

The team is currently hard at work sourcing speakers and topics from all over the world. 

If you have an idea for a session we should cover, or a speaker we should include, please e-mail

We are especially keen to highlight speakers from backgrounds under-represented in broadcast engineering.

Sessions so far announced include:

  • Attracting new talent to technology – how can radio and audio companies compete for new recruits when up against the lure of companies like Facebook and Google? And how do we retain the technology talent we already have?
  • South Africa’s digital plans – with the UK and much of Europe focused on DAB and DAB+, why is South Africa choosing DRM as part of its digital future?
  • BBC Maker Box – did you know the BBC R&D team has lots of free tools for creative technologists and producers to explore? Find out how you can get on the inside track and join in at home with some live demos of the latest technology.
  • Addressing in-built bias in music production tools: hear from a graduate music producer who has developed a plug-in for digital editors to work outside of Western music formats and cater towards different ragas or scales in Indian music.
  • Latency mini-masterclass: what is latency, why does it matter and what tools help us with more effective remote collaboration?
  • Behind the scenes: take a virtual tour around Global’s new LBC visualised studio at Millbank.
  • Plus Stephanie Hirst returns with the all-important Radio TechCon interactive quiz – with prizes!
  • More sessions to be announced soon!
  • All delegates will receive 8 hours of CPD credits, accredited by the IET.
