The Podcast Show is the ultimate networking event, whether you are in the business of podcasting, new to podcasting, an independent creator, publisher or IP owner, or looking to innovate and improve your craft.

The Podcast Show will play host to a series of standout show features, such as the ‘Brands & Advertising Exchange’ and the ‘International Pavilion’, as well as a series of stages created to both inspire and showcase emerging podcasting talent, including ‘Rise Up Platforms’, ‘Pitch A Podcast’, a ‘Creator Centre’ – with a whole host more to be announced.

With the entire podcasting community from around the world gathering under one roof, The Podcast Show also proudly presents an evening ‘festival fringe’ style programme hosted at venues around Islington, with major live podcast shows from well-known global talent – more information and full schedule to be announced.
