From Issue:

Don't get stuck standing in the back (or worse, out in the hallway!). We want you in comfortably seated in a chair at the Dallas Hilton Anatole September 18th for RAIN Summit Dallas. To ensure this, of course, secure your spot now (in all seriousness, our September events in Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. all became SRO affairs).

Please visit the RAIN Summit Dallas page for registration info, links and more.

Each September we partner with the RAB NAB Radio Show and produce a half-day educational and networking event (modeled after our annual April RAIN Summit West). One of the most eagerly-anticipated topics we'll cover is the "social" applications for Internet radio: song sharing, music recommendations, listening rooms, and more. The "Social Radio" panel will be moderated by Triton Digital VP/Business Strategy, Applications & Services Division Jim Kerr. Manolo Espinosa (right), who is SoundCloud's Head of Audio (SoundCloud is a social audio platform where users create audio and share it) and Jelli founder and CEO Mike Dougherty (Jelli is a service for broadcasters which allows listeners to instantly affect what they're hearing using Internet social tools) will contribute, as will Clear Channel Media + Entertainment's iHeartRadio Network SVP Owen Grover and Myxer founder Myk Willis.

To engage the important topic of Monetizing Mobile listening, we're happy to welcome Spotify's Midwest Regional VP Brian Berner (left). Leading the conversation about this ever-growing audience segment (and how to profit from it) is Inside Radio Senior Editor Paul Heine. We also welcome Pandora's Kim Luegers, CBS Local's Neil Salvage, Kevin Straley from TuneIn, and Cox Media Group's Jeffrey Ulrich. 

The afternoon culminates with the keynote address (more here) from Clear Channel Media and Entertainment President of National Sales, Marketing & Partnerships Tim Castelli (right), RAIN publisher Kurt Hanson's "State of the Industry" address, and the presentation of the third-annual RAIN Internet Radio Awards.

You can see the full RAIN Summit Dallas agenda, with a complete rundown of panel topics and speakers, here.

The Radio Show is currently offering a special two-for-one discount if you plan to attend both the Radio Show and RAIN Summit Dallas. Just register for the Radio Show (here), and make sure you select the "Radio Show/RAIN Summit Two-for-One Discount" option. See you in Dallas!

(We'd also like to remind you about our inaugural RAIN Summit Europe, coming up October 5th in Berlin. You can find more details on that, and links to register, here.)

Talking about radio might be boring for some people but its still the best source of information. I have been managing research work at http://www.essaybulldogs.com/ for students who are going to join media. As per my observation radio is still a good platform for people who wanted to make a career in media.
