What’s Next?” on Tuesday 6th March, 1130-1300.

The delegates will also be able to participate actively in the DRM workshop on Wednesday 7th March, 1400-1530, at Tun Sri Lanang 1, The Royale Chulan Hotel, held under the title “Introducing and Implementing Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) – Practical Lessons and Best Practice”.

Key DRM experts will give updates on the DRM latest developments throughout the conference.

Ruxandra Obreja, DRM Consortium Chair, says that: “Understanding how to successfully roll out digital radio on budget, with significant energy savings and on time, as part of a well-coordinated national effort, is crucial.  The aim of the workshop is to give delegates access to experts from the DRM Consortium who will be available to answer questions and demonstrate how a well-planned roll-out can embrace and affirm the power of digital radio.”
