Podcasting Events in the UK 2023

Pulished: 20 June 2023

The podcast industry in the UK has experienced consistent growth in recent years and is projected to continue expanding throughout 2022. Despite a significant decrease in average commute times due to the pandemic, the number of listeners has risen across the country. This surge in interest has led to the emergence of new production companies, an increasing number of individuals launching their own shows, and brilliant, active communities.

This growing enthusiasm for podcasting has opened up numerous opportunities for podcasters to connect, learn, and exchange ideas at conferences, workshops, and other events. These gatherings serve as excellent platforms for networking, acquiring new skills, staying updated, and sharing stories. As pandemic restrictions gradually ease, more people are eager to venture out, meet others, and establish personal connections.

To make your search easier, we have compiled a directory of the largest podcasting events in the UK for this year, both in-person and virtual. We have scoured the web to bring you this curated list of top-tier podcasting conferences within our home country, the United Kingdom. We will strive to keep it regularly updated, but please feel free to inform us if there are any additions you believe should be included. We plan to attend as many of these events as possible, so if you spot us, please don’t hesitate to say hello.

In future posts, we will also curate lists of podcast events happening in other regions. The next posts will likely focus on Europe and North America.
