NOT-ONLY-UTAH PODCAST SUMMIT
June 12 & 13th 2020
There’s hundreds of ways to start and run a podcast.
Come find the one that’s right for you.
For the past two years, the Utah Podcast Summit has been the largest gathering of podcasters in the Intermountain West. We wanted to create a space to support Utah’s community of podcasters and storytellers.
As we enter our third year, we’re opening up our space to podcasters beyond Utah and the Intermountain West. Whether you’re just starting your first podcast or you have been podcasting for a decade, no matter where you are in the world, we invite you to join us for the 2020 Not-Only-Utah Podcast Summit!
What to Expect in 2020
This year, due to COVID19, our Summit will be an entirely online event.
We are bringing our community together in a two-day virtual conference hosted on the Utah Podcast Summit website. This platform will provide you with opportunities to connect directly with other podcasters and speakers, and as well as access to all the recorded talks from the entire Summit!
In addition to a fantastic line-up of speakers, this year we’re adding more opportunities for you to connect and interact during the Summit! Check out some of what we have planned:
Voice of the West Competition
Is your podcast the best in the West? Our 2020 Summit features a pitch competition with podcasters based in the western United States, and one will be named the Voice of the West!
Over the past 6 months, we’ve hosted a series of qualifying rounds to find some of the coolest podcasts out there. These 6 podcasts will go onstage at the 2020 Summit to pitch their show!
Check back soon for the announcement with our final qualifying podcasters!
Hall of Experts
Want someone to give you feedback on your logo? Need some advice with pitching sponsors or getting media attention for your podcast? What about marketing, audio editing, or storytelling? Our Hall of Experts is your opportunity to schedule a time with industry professionals and get direct advice on improving your podcast!
The best part of conferences is the connections: meeting new people, running into old friends, and learning from our peers. That’s a little harder to do virtually. That’s why this year we’re hosting virtual networking rooms at scheduled times throughout the conference! When you purchase your ticket, we’ll ask you some of your interests so we can set you up with one-on-one connections and curated networking groups. Come connect with your fellow podcasters!
Our Friday Festival on June 12th is a celebration of podcasts! Some of your favorite podcast hosts will be live-streaming their shows, so tune in, watch, and interact! See how experienced podcasters have adapted to social-distance podcasting!
Find the full schedule below, as well as information on each of the podcasts that will be podcasting live.
The Saturday Summit on June 13th is a full day of learning, building, and community! The 2020 Summit features three tracks: Launch, for podcasters just getting started; Build, for podcasters building a community; and Grow, for podcasters looking to understand the business side of podcasting.
After the presentations, we will get to hear from our Pitch Competition qualifiers, as they pitch live to be named the Voice of the West!
Featured Talks & Speakers
From storytelling to marketing, building communities to building a media kit, our experts will cover what you need to know to start, grow, and build your podcast!
