What is Podcast Movement?
Podcast Movement is THE ultimate gathering spot for anyone interested in or involved with podcasting and the podcast industry.
Active and aspiring podcasters, industry representatives, and podcasting professionals from around the world will converge for three and a half days and nights at this year’s Podcast Movement.
BOTTOM LINE: You should be there!
Simply put, the goal of Podcast Movement is to bring together and educate active and aspiring podcasters, and to grow the podcast community and industry as a whole. We do this through educational and informative breakout sessions and panels spread across seven tracks, enlightening and encouraging keynote presentations, and fun networking events and parties. With over 4,000 podcasters joining us over the last six years from nearly 30 different countries (and growing), we are excited to continue the mission of Podcast Movement for many years to come.
Who is Podcast Movement For?
We've taken special care to format the conference in a way that there will be three full days worth of sessions and activities that directly benefit anyone currently involved with, or looking to get into, podcasting and the podcast industry. With over 300 speakers and panelists participating in over 150 different sessions for you to pick from, we work hard to make sure there will be something for you at Podcast Movement.
Active & Aspiring Podcasters
We’re excited to feature sessions specifically focused on getting you started the RIGHT way. From basic technical sessions regarding equipment, software, and editing, to learning the best way to craft a story, we have you covered. If you're experienced, we know even the best recognize things they need to improve on, and we’re bringing in the best podcasters and industry professionals to help you take things up a notch. Whether you’re looking to refine your production, looking for new ways to monetize, or trying to gain more listeners, we’ll have dozens of sessions for you!
Podcast & Broadcast Industry Professionals
Two of our most popular tracks are the Industry Track and the Broadcasters Meet Podcasters Track. This year we are excited to feature a large selection of sessions and panels geared towards “behind the scenes teams” and industry professionals, as well as those who are from a more traditional radio background. The most successful networks, ad sellers and buyers, statistic providers, and everything in between will be sharing what has been working (and what hasn’t) in the past year, and what they are doing for the future. We’ve put a lot of focus on this, and it’s going to rock!
Podcast Movement Central, as we call it, will feature nearly 100 exhibitors. From software and service providers, to gear and equipment manufacturers, if they are relevant in the space, you’ll most likely find them here all week!
