The 36th Annual Conference organised by CIRCOM Regional, the professional association of regional public service television in Europe and an AER partner network, will take place in Leeuwarden (NL), on 24th and 25th of May. This event, which is the most inspiring conference in regional broadcasting, gathers experts, thinkers and observers of the media world.
“Are we connected?” is the conference theme of this year. How well to serve the needs of the audience as a public broadcaster? How important are the cultural and language elements in that connection? These are some of the questions that will be addressed at the conference. We encourage our members’ regional televisions to take part in this exciting meeting.
