Register now! TACD public forum on Consumer Protection in the Digital Sphere

On 4 June TACD’s 19th Public Forum (#TACDFORUM2019) will take place in Washington D.C.

This year we’ll be discussing consumer protection in the digital sphere. We’ll be exploring a number of exciting digital-related topics including privacy, digital trade, open banking, food safety and access to medicines. And we’ll be examining ways to achieve transatlantic cooperation to better enforce consumer rights.

We’ve got some great speakers lined up including Federal Trade Commissioner Rohit Chopra, the Delegation of the European Union to the United States, and DuckDuckGo, to name but a few.

For more info, you can check out the programme and flyer.

Please do not forget to register to attend.

Side event on privacy and data protection – 5 June

As well as the public forum, we’ll be organising a half-day side event on “The Need for Privacy in the US” on Wednesday 5 June. The event will begin with three Ted-style presentations covering the realities of everyday digital life and their impact on consumers.

This will be followed by a discussion on how we address the problem and what kind of impact this would have on the rest of the world.

If you’re interested in attending this event, please register here.

The full programme can be found here.

If you should have any questions related to either of these events, please contact TACD coordinator Alexandra Graziano (

We hope to see you in Washington D.C.
