We're delighted to announce our first-ever RAIN Summit Europe will take place October 5, 2012 in Berlin, Germany. It will include a keynote presentation from Spotify's General Manager for Europe, Jonathan Forster.
Forster (pictured below left) is responsible for the overall development of Spotify’s European business, leading the strategy and development of advertising sales at Spotify and managing Spotify’s workforce across the region including the UK, France, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Finland, The Netherlands and Denmark. Spotify is the most listened to streaming service in Europe, with more than 20 million registered users worldwide.
The first-ever RAIN Summit Europe will take place at the award-winning nhow Hotel ("Berlin’s Music and Lifestyle Hotel").
RAIN Summits are a popular and fast-growing series of world-class Internet radio conferences, geared to broadcasters on the web (e.g., Clear Channel Radio, CBS Radio, and Entercom), and Internet-only webcasters (e.g., Pandora, Slacker, and AccuRadio) alike.
Since 2003, the annual RAIN Summit West in Las Vegas, coinciding with the NAB Show, has been a premiere educational and networking event for the webcasting industry. We'll also host a Summit in Dallas this September.
In addition to Forster, RAIN Summit Europe will include executives from the Association de European Radios, Spectrum Medya, AudioEmotion, Adswizz, Absolute Radio, Deezer, Triton Digital and others.
