Let's get together in Philadelphia for a RAIN Summit East!

Posted on: 09/11/2009

If you’ve been thinking about coming to Philadelphia September 23-25 to attend the NAB Radio Show, which looks like it’s shaping up to be a very good three-day conference, here’s another reason to make the decison and book your travel now:

We’ve just locked in plans to hold our first-ever RAIN Summit East during the late afternoon on Thursday, September 24th, at the Hard Rock Cafe adjacent to the Philadelphia Convention Center. And we hope you’ll join us!

We’ll have further details on Monday, but here are the basics:

The event will consist of speakers, panels, workshops, and networking opportunities from 3:00PM to 5:30PM, followed by a RAIN Reader Cocktail Party from 5:30PM to 6:30PM. (This timing will slightly overlap with the end of the Jacobs Summit and the start of the Marconi Awards cocktail party, but if you plan judiciously you should be able to attend most of all three events.)

We encourage NAB Radio Show registration but it will not be mandatory to attend the RAIN Summit. NAB Radio Show registration prices range from $795 for non-NAB members to $495 for NAB members to $179 for “free agents” (i.e., radio professionals who are currently between gigs). Details here.

RAIN Summit East sessions will include a panel on revenues generation moderated by Dan Halyburton, a first-ever roundtable discussion with top executives from SoundExchange, and lots more. (Again, look for more details early next week.)

And thanks to the support of generous sponsors including Ando Media, Pandora, AccuRadio, SoundExchange, and RadioTime, the entire event, including the cocktail party, will be free admission to all radio and webcasting professionals! (Although pre-registration may be required, as we have limited capacity.)

(By the way, if you’d like to lock in a reserved seat now, or offer any suggestions regarding the content of the event, or volunteer to be one of the sponsors, drop me a line at kurt@kurthanson.com.)

So start booking those travel plans now, so we can all get together in Philadelphia in two weeks. See you there!

  1. I’ll be able to stay until 5PM — when I have another event to attend. But I’d love to be on the guest list (and I AM attending the NAB — as a fully registered attendee). See you there, Kurt.
