What is PM Virtual?

IMG_6890

Podcast Movement is THE ultimate gathering spot for anyone interested in or involved with podcasting and the podcast industry.

This year, it’s all virtual, so we expect even more podcasters from around the world to be there!

Our Mission

Simply put, for the past 7 years, the goal of Podcast Movement has been to bring together and educate active and aspiring podcasters, and to grow the podcast community and industry as a whole. This year, we will do this through over 100 virtual educational and informative breakout sessions and panels spread across several tracks, enlightening and encouraging keynote presentations, and fun virtual networking events and parties. With nearly 10,000 podcasters joining us over the last seven years from over 30 different countries (and growing), we are excited to continue the mission of Podcast Movement, virtually, for the first time ever!

WHO'S IT FOR?

We’ve taken special care to format the conference in a way that there will be four full days worth of sessions and activities, spread across two weeks, that directly benefit anyone currently involved with, or looking to get into, podcasting and the podcast industry. With over 200 speakers and panelists participating in over 100 different virtual sessions for you to pick from, we work hard to make sure there will be something for you at Podcast Movement.

ACTIVE + ASPIRING

We’re excited to feature sessions specifically focused on getting you started the RIGHT way. From basic technical sessions regarding equipment, software, and editing, to learning the best way to craft a story, we have you covered. If you’re experienced, we know even the best recognize things they need to improve on, and we’re bringing in the best podcasters and industry professionals to help you take things up a notch. Whether you’re looking to refine your production, looking for new ways to monetize, or trying to gain more listeners, we’ll have dozens of sessions for you!

INDUSTRY PROS

As with years past, we’re excited to once again be featuring a large selection of sessions and panels geared towards “behind the scenes” teams and industry professionals, as well as those who are from a more traditional radio background. The most successful networks, ad sellers and buyers, statistic providers, and everything in between will be sharing what has been working (and what hasn’t) in the past year, and what they are doing for the future. We put a lot of focus on this, and it’s going to rock!

VIRTUAL EXHIBITION HALL

Podcast Movement Central, as we call it, will feature over 100 virtual exhibitors running live booths, with live members of their teams ready to text or video chat. From software and service providers, to gear and equipment manufacturers, if they are relevant in the space, you’ll most likely find them there on the event days!
