October 4-6 (Thurs - Sat)

Registration will open July 24!

Join us in Chicago for three chock-full days of learning about the art & craft of audio storytelling from the field’s top makers, making connections with other producers/podcasters/reporters from all over the world, and discovering impactful radio & podcasting opportunities. And celebrate with us on the final night with an awards ceremony honoring the winners of the 2018 Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition.

Please don't wait to register, we have room for 800 people (and that includes presenters, volunteers and other special guests). We expect to sell out within two months, though it could be sooner. Once all of the spots are gone, the only way to score a registration is from someone who needs to transfer theirs, we do not have a waiting list.

Fees:
$430/earlybird & $495/main
Half of the spots are reserved for earlybirds and when those run out the main price kicks in.
