What happened at PodFest China 2019

November 28, 2019 · By · 1.7 minutes to read

PodFest China 2019 was a half-day conference held in Shanghai on November 9, 2019. This year’s conference was themed “Chinese podcasting takes off in 2019” addressing three topics.

Over 240 people showed up, although it was originally planned for 160. The event attracted attendees from Beijing, Chengdu, Hangzhou and all over the country.

As far as we know, we are the first to hold annual podcasting-focused event in China, so that explained the hype. But still that was quite a surprise to us considering the flight and accommodation cost while the event itself is just 6 hours.

What did we discuss?

In addition to these three sessions, and fourteen speakers, we also had four hands-on workshops covering: narrative storytelling, sound design, field recording, and community engagement.
