All Things Technical Roadshow

Background to the Roadshow

A year ago, Steve Barrett-White and I were at the first local TNF Roadshow 'Working in Partnership' where we discussed the make-up of TNs and recognised that the technical aspect is equally as important as the readers, presenters, news editors and the administration but we have never had an event solely for the Technicians.

The content of the day is aimed at those volunteers who have an interest in or a responsibility for the technical aspect of running a TN such as recording or editing.  You might be new to the role or have always wanted to get involved in that aspect of the TN so come along and find out what is involved.

I am delighted to attach the list of confirmed speakers for the day, their biographies, and the programme we will be presenting along with a list of companies who are leaders in their field.  You will have the opportunity to discuss any topic or problem to do with recording or whatever technical issues you might have within your TNs.

Booking & Cost

We are using the usual TNF booking system which will be open at the beginning of February.

The cost is £16 per delegate which TNF is subsidising by 50%, this includes Tea & Coffee on arrival, mid-morning refreshments, a hot and cold buffet lunch and tea and coffee mid-afternoon.
