Record number of sponsors secured for UK radio and audio industry event

One week to go before The Radio Academy Festival 2022

The Radio Academy Festival 2022 takes place in one week’s time on 7 September at the Royal College of Physicians. 

A record number of sponsorship deals for the UK radio and audio industry event have been secured by Reg&Co, The Radio Academy’s sponsorship agency – reaching a new high since the Festival moved to London in 2015.

Sam Bailey, Managing Director of The Radio Academy commented: 

“We are extremely excited ahead of our annual day of celebration, debate and discussion and 

this year has surpassed all others with regards to partnership interest. This increased support has enabled us to keep the ticket price low, making it one of the most accessible conferences in the sector. I look forward to working closely with all our sponsors at next week’s Festival and beyond.”

This year’s Festival sees the audio industry coming together to celebrate ‘The Power of Audio’ focussing on the deep connection between the radio industry and its listeners and we have an exciting array of keynote speakers lined up throughout the day.”
