Following the phenomenal success of last year’s inaugural show, The Podcast Show is now truly positioned as THE international event for the business of podcasting.
Last May, we brought together over 9,500 visitors, across the day and night of the festival, from every corner of the world – from the east and west coasts of the US to Mexico, China, South Korea, Australia, and all across Europe. The show delivered some of the most recognizable faces in podcasting including: Louis Theroux and My Dad Wrote A Porno, through to leading players in the business.
We’re back, we’re bigger and more ambitious than before, with more venues, more content, major players and bigger names!
