The General Assembly of the DRM Consortium is scheduled to take place on March 26th and 27th 2014 at the BBC Headquarters in central London, the New Broadcasting House.

Under the title “DRM in Action” the Consortium would like to make this the most inclusive event in its history, a moment to consider the benefits of DRM and its progress, an affirmation of the power of digital radio.

The first day of the GA (March 26th) will be open to all DRM members and invited guests from the UK and abroad.  It will be a day to celebrate the power of radio.  The morning will be devoted to informative presentations on the extra benefits of digital radio; the impact of radio and insights into markets around the world, in particular India and Brazil.

In the afternoon, all delegates will be able to have a “hands–on” experience of DRM and digital radio. It will be an ideal opportunity to network with fellow professionals from across the globe and to see how the new technology can offer choice of content and benefit audiences. The event will be hosted in the iconic Radio Theatre of the BBC.

To register for the General Assembly events on the 26th March please contact projectoffice@drm.org

Events held on the 27th March are dedicated to DRM Consortium members only.
