National Student Radio Conference

The National Student Radio Conference is one of the most interesting, entertaining and successful events in the radio industry calendar. Three days of action have been packed into as many sessions as possible to give you real value for money and plenty to take back to your stations.

Last year’s #SRACon was held at the University of Exeter, and this year we’ll be in Cardiff with Xpress Radio from March 30th.

The National Student Radio Conference is a hugely popular event in the SRA calendar, and has grown progressively year on year, to such an extent that is has doubled in attendees over the last three years. This event is three days during the Easter holidays and is entirely membership focussed; the programme of sessions, entertainment and opportunities is 100% aimed at developing student radio, station programming, show teams, and individuals.

Significantly more information about the 2016 Student Radio Conference will be announce in coming weeks. Watch this space for updates, and be the first to hear conference news by subscribing to the SRA weekly newsletter. Don't forget to join in the conversation on twitter using #SRACon.

Keynote Sessions

Keynotes are a chance to see some of the biggest players in the radio industry talk on a whole series of topics. Be sure to grab a seat early as these sessions often fill up.

Breakout Sessions

Your day at the conference is then divided into blocks of ‘Breakout Sessions’. You can choose to attend one of a series of Breakouts during each hour block (unless of course you possess super human powers which allow you to be in two places at once!)

Each breakout block is designed to have something for everyone, from sessions about station management and marketing, to presenting advice and producing tips. Each breakout session is specifically tailored to cover a variety of topics.
