Radio Ink’s Forecast 2023 is now in the books. The annual financial event held at the Harvard Club in New York City was standing room only and boasted the largest number of sponsors in the 20-year history of the event. Here’s what attendees had to say about the conference.

“Many thanks to Deborah Parenti and the entire team at Radio Ink magazine for presenting yet another insightful, impactful, and forward-leaning conference on behalf of the radio and television industry.”

“This year’s Forecast was such a great event. I knew going in there would be strong content, but it far exceeded my expectations. And, despite the challenges the economy is presenting, the day was filled with strategic ideas on how to adapt and succeed in 2023.”

“The undisputed premier industry event. A decade into our relationship, Forecast continues to be a high-yield, tentpole sponsorship opportunity for Nielsen. Proud to continue our participation.”
Brad Kelly

“The comments from those who drive revenue and locate money for media were clearly positive about the business. The opportunity to be in a room with many of the brightest minds and greatest influencers in our industry made the entire event a ‘must-attend’ for me. The sessions were informative, and very entertaining. The fact that it was acknowledged that talent sell products really resonated with me. I also enjoyed seeing many of my friends and making some new ones.”

“I thought last year was impressive! From the panel topics to the lineup of power players, this year’s event was truly a showstopper. Bravo to Deb and her team.”

“Forecast provided perspectives from both inside and outside of our business. Where we are going in 2023 and beyond and some insights on revenue predictions to plan forward. Great to hear from success and why it works.”

“Overall, this conference was packed with lots of actionable “takeaway” information. I was most taken with the accessibility of NAB CEO Curtis Legeyt, who said, ‘This is an industry that needs to succeed.’ He added, ‘The card to play for Washington, DC, is ‘Local and Trusted.’ His comments resonate in a room loaded with decisionmakers.”

“Radio Ink’s annual Forecast event has once again laid a solid foundation for what the radio and television broadcast industry leaders can expect to see and experience in the coming year. Many thanks to Deborah Parenti and the entire team for producing yet another outstanding event!”
