The HOLLYWOOD ROOSEVELT HOTEL has been home to unprecedented global entertainment events such as THE GRAMMY AWARDS, OSCARS and many other high-profile gatherings where legends are made and is right across the street from THE HARD ROCK CAFÉ.

WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT 2013 will lead up to the highly-respected independent global music, media and technology conference MUSEXPO, which celebrates its ninth year in 2013 and has been hosted on three continents (N. AMERICA, EUROPE and AUSTRALIA).

Over the past two years, the WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT has generated significant outcomes for many of the hundreds of U.S. and international attendees that participated and who have a vested interest in the world's most powerful medium to break new artists, sell music and engage with billions of listeners globally.

WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT 2013 will highlight some of the most important issues and opportunities impacting radio today and tomorrow, as well as focus on the future of this crucial broadcast medium that is the world's largest communicator of music and sound.

The architects behind the WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT include the influential, independent, international talent discovery, development and consulting firm, A&R Worldwide, which produces the annual MUSEXPO and consults numerous music industry events around the globe; and the world's largest online radio/music industry information and news resource, AllAccess.com.

After strong encouragement from international radio broadcasters and the music community over the past few years, the idea of a WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT came into fruition in 2011-- to unite broadcasters from the U.S. and other nations in an inclusive manner to showcase new creative and business models that will help this essential communicator of music, talk, news and sports evolve and thrive for years to come.

In addition, WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT 2013 will help radio networks connect with peers and help radio discover and expose some of the best new talent from across the globe to its vast audiences.

As radio evolves from terrestrial to online, satellite, digital and mobile, the WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT will continue to offer the insight that will keep attendees on the pulse of the future of this essential broadcast medium and provide the chance to interact with those driving the future ideology and content of radio.

SAT BISLA, President/Founder A&R WORLDWIDE/MUSEXPO, states, "As members and advocates of the global radio and music community we will once again provide a key forum to bring together radio and those vested in radio in a way to ensure this medium maintains its importance as the primary communicator for sound to billions around the world. I am very pleased [again] to be working with JOEL DENVER and his great team at ALLACCESS.COM, who possess a similar passion and vision for radio as A&R WORLDWIDE does: to help deliver an event that will bring broadcasters and music enthusiasts together for the betterment of radio, the listener and the music community."

JOEL DENVER, ALLACCESS.COM President & Publisher, notes, "I am looking forward to working with SAT BISLA and his terrific team at A&R WORLDWIDE in presenting THE WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT 2013. We'll once again feature exciting speakers who will share their knowledge of radio, digital technologies and successful, innovative methods of ways of driving new revenue streams so that radio executives around the world can tap into these rapidly evolving new frontiers of interaction and communication with their audiences. This will not be the same old stuff you've seen elsewhere. This will be another example of must-see, must-hear, must-attend content."
