Canada’s Premier Broadcasters Conference
Registration is Now Open for
2018 Western Association of Broadcasters Conference
Registration is now open for the Western Association of Broadcasters 84th Annual Conference – Canada’s Premier Broadcasters Conference. Taking place June 6-7, 2018 at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, headlining the WAB Conference will be Arlene Dickinson from CBC “Dragons` Den” and one of Canada’s most successful communications entrepreneurs will be headlining our must-attend Conference.
The world-class speakers line-up also includes researcher David Allison who will introduce us to Valuegraphics, an entirely new tool that defines and motivates target audiences based on what people value: what they need, want and expect out of life. Terry O’Reilly, the familiar voice behind the hit CBC radio program “Under the Influence” is returning to the WAB Conference to speak about the power of storytelling in our stations. The Conference will also feature a panel of programming experts to give their insights on how we can monetize programming for increased sales. Panalists will include Paul Kaye (Rogers Media), Ronnie Stanton (Alpha Media), Rob Farina (Bell Media), Steve Jones (Newcap Radio) and Barry Vice (Golden West Broadcasting).
Running right before the Banff World Media Festival, June will be buzzing with broadcasters and leaders in Canadian and international media. Joining the WAB Conference as a special guest is new CRTC Chairperson & CEO, Ian Scott who will also be attending the CRTC Meet & Greet following the WAB Conference sessions.

What happened to Mark Ritson being the keynote speaker?
Any comment from the WAB? They were really touting this guy as a big draw next year.
AB Radio Guy,
Not too sure about that. It was WAB headquarters who sent a request in to take down the Ritson banner, because there had been a change in the lineup, So down came the old, and up with the new banner… will let you know if I receive further word. I am pursuing.
I just viewed one of Ritson’s videos, and anything but impressed with the man. Why do these guys insist on swearing throughout their presentations. I for one, don’t want to hear shit, fuck this, and other words. hey man, I’m anything but a prude, just fed up with language I really don’t want to hear anymore. Is it that difficult to understand?
