From Issue:

By and large, the traditional broadcast experience was locally-focused, from the advertising base to your listeners and on-air product. Of course, broadcasting exists on a national level as well, if you operate in the network world. But now with the Internet, your audience and client base can truly be worldwide. And because so much is happening outside of North America we want to know about and report, we've organized our first-ever RAIN Summit Europe, in Berlin on Friday, October 5th.

(That tiny figure in the photo is Edison Research VP/Music & Programming Sean Ross, who recently visited the stylish nhow "Berlin" - The Music & Lifestyle Hotel Berlin, where we'll meet.)

More than two dozen of the top firms in the space, from all over Europe (and a couple from the U.S.), will be represented. Here's a sample:

The Association of European Radios (AER) is a Europe-wide trade body which represents the interests of over 4,500 private/commercial radio stations across the EU27 and in Switzerland. Stefan Möller (left, above) is from Finland, and is AER President. He'll speak on the "Targeted Advertising & Listener Registration" panel. That panel will be moderated by Patrick Roger, Paris-based VP/Sales & Marketing for AdsWizz. An audio and video adverstising solutions firm with offices in California and Europe, AdsWizz will also be represented at the Summit by Product Manager Erik Barraud (who works in Brussels) on the "Measurement Options for Streaming Audio" panel. AdsWizz recently announced a partnership with Streamguys here in the U.S. (more here).

Perhaps the biggest non-U.S. streaming music service is France's Deezer. David Deslandes, Deezer Deputy GM, Head of Ad Sales, will share his thoughts on the "Monetizing Digital Audio" panel. Joining him is Caroline Graze (left, below), NRJ International Head of Internet & New Business Intl., based in Hamburg. NRJ is the "Hit Music Only!" multimedia group with a brand extending across Europe and even North America and Japan.

Our keynote speaker represents perhaps the most significant online music concern to come out of Europe, Spotify. Spotify's European GM and VP of Ad Sales Jonathan Forster's (pictured right) company now boasts 15 million active users worldwide, 4 million of whom pay for the service every month. Besides its on-demand streaming product, Spotify Radio is a personalized radio stream listeners create based on artists, songs, or genres, which can be further influenced through "thumbs up/thumbs down" song ratings.

Please take a look at our full roster of industry experts and agenda of panels, all of the most up-to-date information, and registration links on the RAIN Summit Europe page. And please check out where we'll hold the Summit: the very stylish nhow "Berlin" - The Music & Lifestyle Hotel Berlin.

It's our goal to make our inaugural RAIN Summit Europe a valuable and rewarding experience for all our attendees and participants, and your presence there will help us achieve that.
