2015 CRS Schedule Previewed Ahead of Rate Bump

CRS-2015-LogoCountry Radio Broadcasters (CRB) has revealed an early version of its agenda (below) for Country Radio Seminar 2015 in advance of the early bird registration rate deadline, which expires Oct. 31, bumping registration by $100, to $499.

The preliminary agenda runs from Feb. 25-27, 2015, beginning on Wednesday – unlike previous years – at the Nashville Convention Center, featuring performances, educational seminars, networking opportunities and panels covering all areas of the radio and records industry. The displaced Country Radio Hall of Fame Induction Dinner and Awards ceremony, which previously coincided with CRS, will now take place June 24 during the 2015 CRB annual summer board and agenda committee meetings.

“The Agenda Committee wanted to create for 2015 not only something for everyone, but a lot for everyone,” said CRS Agenda Committee chairman Jeff Green. “We’re excited about showcasing more than 20 first-time presenters, panelists and participants – new faces to go with the New Faces! Experts in technology, social, imaging, talent and programming are all part of the focus on practical, professional productivity that will provide information to take home and put to work immediately. We’re working hard to make next year’s CRS the best program ever.”

Nov. 1 also marks the last day in which stations can sign up to receive digital liners.

Registration is available at countryradioseminar.com or by calling the CRS offices at 615-327-4487.
