The first part of the day will be the regular conference, bringing together the podcast sector with speakers from shows, networks and platforms.
In the late afternoon, Podcast Day 24 will be hosting Upfronts – a showcase for podcast networks to talk about their upcoming shows, activities and special projects to an assembled group of advertising agency guests. After the Upfronts our delegates from across the day will enjoy a drinks reception with cocktails from Four Pillars and Fever Tree.
The Australian leg is one of 3 days worth of content in 24 hours happening around the world.
After Australia kicks off Podcast Day 24, Europe (Live Online) picks up the baton, before it finishes with North America (Live Online).
Each leg has over 30 speakers talking about a variety of podcast topics.
Ticket holders get access to the 24 hour live stream as well as being able to catch-up online with all the sessions – Australia is the only time zone to have a Live, In-Person event.
Peter Niegel from Podcast Day 24 says: “Right now in the rest of the world a Live event isn’t possible but for Australia this is an important opportunity for podcasters to meet and to showcase their podcast plans. We’re also thankful to Triton Digital for being the Global Sponsor of our event”.
Full details of speakers and sessions for all of the 24 hours of this event can be found on the website.
