The Southern Hemisphere’s 1st Podcast Conference launched in 2015 and now it’s time for the 2016 Podcast Conference held on the Gold Coast Australia.
Broadcasting an audio message is not a new concept. For over 200 years, we have been using wireless radio to share stories. The world got smaller with the advent of the radio and with the emergence of the internet. Digital radio took consumption to new measurable and on-demand levels. Digital audio as a marketing and communication tool gives businesses the ability to connect with people on an intimate level for longer. Podcast listening grew 23% between 2015 and 2016.
Apple announced that subscriptions of podcasts through iTunes have surpassed the 1.5 billion mark; and the number of unique monthly podcast listeners have tripled to 75 million from 25 million five years ago. At the end of last year, The Wall Street Journal presented that audio streaming will be the third largest growth trend. In 2016, the total number of podcast listening time will cross the 10 billion hours mark.
So if you want to get on board I totally have faith that this Event is one not to be missed.
