Radio's Digital Revenue Conference:
It's All About The Money

How to Build Massive Digital Revenues For Terrestrial and Digital Radio
How to Prevent Loss of Advertisers to Digital Media in Local Markets
How Stations Are Generating Significant Revenues Without Building Out Large Digital Departments

Stations attend Radio Ink magazine's Convergence conference to maintain an edge, to discover new opportunities to engage audiences and advertisers, and to impact business in the next 6-12 months, plus see what is down the road so they can get a head start. The stations with the most successful digital revenues have been longtime Convergence attendees, attending every year.

A Gathering of Top Minds and Innovators
Innovation in other industries can benefit you by transferring successful ideas to your business. Convergence brings you the top minds in the digital world to create outside perspectives, as well as top radio-industry veterans, to provide valuable insights about emerging advertising and digital trends,  new income models, and what's generating significant income and how.

Local and national advertisers are rapidly migrating budgets to digital and away from legacy media because of lost audiences. Radio is losing as much as 40% in some markets -- a disproportionate shift, since radio's audience erosion is minimal in comparison to other media. We'll show you strategies you can employ to engage advertisers and keep them interested in radio.  

You'll discover disruptive models you can employ at a local level, plus the latest social media strategies being used to generate income and engage audiences.

Consumer behavior has changed, and broadcasters can no longer rely on their experience alone. We must embrace change

Who Should Attend:
Radio Industry Market Managers (All market sizes)
Executive Team Members: Sales Managers, Program Directors, Digtial Directors

Are You Connected?

Today’s new cars are connected, capable of keeping consumers constantly in touch with their audio entertainment, services, and contacts. Everyone from Apple to Google to Zubie is getting involved, and industries from pizza delivery to insurance are facing lifestyle-altering shifts as a result.

Almost since its inception, radio has owned the dash, but today’s tech toys and digital platforms are changing the landscape. Everything is moving crazy fast — but it doesn’t have to be scary.

Radio can continue to hold a primary spot in this ever-more-crowded space and stay engaged with the new opportunities of the connected car. And at Radio Ink’s Convergence, coming up May 27-28 in San Jose, you can find out how, in a panel dedicated to radio’s place on the digital dashboard.

Make Digital Pay Off For Your Station

Streaming, mobile, social media, video, podcasts, websites — radio today has more digital assets than ever. But are they really assets if you don’t know the best ways to sell them?


At Radio Ink’s Convergence, coming up next month in San Jose, we’ve gathered a panel of top sales leaders and trainers to explain how you can make the most of your digital products. It’s a big topic — and a crucial one — and these experts will cover everything from the basics (Do you need a separate digital sales staff?) to the details of choosing the best digital sales platforms for your station and its clients.

New platform options are on the way all the time. Here’s a chance to freshen your sales and marketing approach and bring home the ideas and inspiration that will bring in those digital dollars you’re leaving on the table today. Here’s the stellar lineup.

Make Podcasts Profitable

Podcast subscriptions on iTunes alone have surpassed 1 billion over the last year. It’s time you start cashing in on podcast popularity!

Smartphones and Bluetooth-enabled vehicles have made podcasts more accessible to the mainstream than ever before. With today’s technology, consumers don’t need to be techno-geeks to access the endless amount of high-quality information that can be found in podcasts. And because the host reads the ad messages, they sink in with the listeners better than traditional ads since trust has already been built.
