RAIN 8/4: RAIN Summit East to "hit the roof" for D.C. cocktail party

Posted on: 08/04/2010

D.C. LAW FIRM DAVIS WRIGHT TREMAINE WILL SPONSOR ANNUAL POST-SUMMIT GATHERING

We’re delighted to announce today that the RAIN Reader Cocktail Party, our famous social gathering that follows every RAIN Summit, will be sponsored by Davis Wright Tremaine and held on the rooftop of their beautiful new offices.

The rooftop of Davis Wright Tremaine — the law firm of industry attorney and frequent RAIN source David Oxenford — are mere blocks from the White House. Specifically, the RAIN Summit East Cocktail Party will be held at 1919 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, in Washington D.C. from 6pm to 8pm. All RAIN Summit East attendees are invited to the party.

Click here to register for RAIN Summit East, or to find out more about the Summit. RAIN Summit East is Tuesday, September 28 and is an official co-located event of the RAB/NAB Radio Show. It’ll be held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, starting at 1pm. More information can be found here.

The Summit will not only be jam-packed with insightful speakers and engaging panels, but we’ll be announcing the results of the first-ever RAIN Internet Radio Awards! It’s sure to be even bigger and better than last year’s standing-room-only gathering in Philadelphia.

We hope to see you there!

SLACKER PARTNERS WITH HOT TOPIC FOR MERCH SALES

Slacker and clothing retailer Hot Topic have partnered to provide artist-related merchandise to listeners, much in the same way listeners can already buy music from the Internet radio service. Apparently thousands of artists’ merchandise is available through the deal (“Is there a Yo-Yo Ma-inspired hoodie?” App Scout asks), and artists get a portion of the sales. App Scout has more on the story here.

1.FM SIGNS UP FOR JETCAST’S LOYALTY PROGRAM

Jetcast has announced it has signed up Energy Group Radio — the operator of 1.FM — for Jetcast’s RadioLoyalty Internet radio loyalty program. The service is basically a listener loyalty program in which a webcaster’s listeners earn points for tuning in, using apps, sharing via social media, and referring friends to the station. RAIN has more coverage on the RadioLoyalty service here and you can find Jetcast’s press release here.

SLEEK STEREO WOULD DOCK YOUR iDEVICE, STREAM NET RADIO

This impressive-looking iPod dock does more than your average speaker system. Besides emulating the sleek look of Apple’s iMacs, it can stream Internet radio and play networked music files wirelessly. Alas, it is only a concept at the moment, “but hopefully this one will make it into production.” Dvice.com has more here.
