103 The Eye is holding its fourth annual Community Radio Networking & Information Day in Melton Mowbray on Saturday 28th April 2018 and those involved in the sector are very welcome to attend this free event.
This follows the success of three previous networking days held by the award-winning station which has successfully completed 12 years of broadcasting to the Vale of Belvoir on the Leicestershire-Nottinghamshire border.
The event is aimed at directors and managers of community radio stations – those already broadcasting on FM, AM or DAB and those who are applying forOfcom licences but are not yet on the air.
This year’s theme is income generation and sustainability, and inter-station co-operation. A list of speakers and topics will be announced shortly.
During the informal networking time, broadcast and studio engineers will demonstrate some of the latest equipment and provide advice on technical matters. In addition, individual radio stations can share their success stories and there will be exhibition space where they can mount a small display if they wish.
The Networking Day takes place in the Civic Suite at Melton Borough Council’s Parkside Offices, in Burton Street, adjacent to Melton railway station (LE13 1GH). There is ample, inexpensive parking nearby. Doors open at 10 am for informal networking and the speaker session begins at 11.45 am, followed by a complimentary buffet lunch and the afternoon is then devoted to informal networking until 4 pm.
The event is free to attend, but attendees must book a place. To register email email@example.com by Friday 20th April.
