The premier gathering of radio leaders and influencers in Africa, shared the best of radio today and discussed the future of the medium in a changing environment. The conference is a platform where radio practitioners get exposed to new ideas and skills from the continent and abroad.

Radio Days Africa hosted a range of local and international speakers who spoke about the tenacity of the medium in a booming technological era and gave insight into best practices and future trends.
