Asociatia pentru Comunicatii Digitale (ACD)


Founded in 2009, Association for Digital Communications - ACD ( is the main forum for debating and promoting digital communication technologies in Romania. At present, a major topic on the public agenda is the digital switchover - a process that will open new business opportunities for all those involved or interested: TV and radio broadcasters; carriers; technology producers and telecom operators. Moreover, the process will open a completely new era for Romanian consumers, through a modern offering of high tech communication services.


ACD organizes conferences, seminars and round tables ensuring the presence of high-level representatives of the Romanian and European governments and regulators; and the presence of the executives of major international companies with extensive experience in implementing digital technologies. The aim is to put together the public and private sectors to facilitate the debates and discussions about digital technologies and the legal framework required for their implementation in Romania.
