Home Show: Spotify, Harper Collins & Wireless On the Future Of Audio

The Home Show explores how connected tech and the internet of things are changing the way brands interact with consumers.

In the series, our futurist, Simon Gosling, chats with innovative businesses and individuals whose products and ideas are disrupting their industries.

This month we were lucky enough to sit down with Marco Bertozzi, VP Head of Sales at Spotify, Liam Fisher, Wireless Group National Radio Controller, and Rachel Mallender, Group Audio Director at Harper Collins.

With research showing that smart speakers are encouraging 70% of people to listen to more radio and more music via streaming services, the opportunity for audio providers and networks (and the advertisers that use them) is massive.

Our panel discusses the impact of devices like Amazon Echo on Google Home on audio entertainment and advertising, and what the future of this technology holds for brands and consumers alike.
