Digital radio and digital television are high on the agenda for the 2009 RadioTV Forum di Aeranti-Corallo. The event, the only broadcast-specific show in Italy, takes place 19–20 May 2009 at the Hotel Melià Roma Aurelia Antica Convention Center in Rome, Italy.
Aeranti-Corallo is the Italian association of local broadcasters; its membership consists of local stations from across the country, some national networks, as well as satellite and internet broadcasters. It has nearly 1,000 associates.
2009 is a critical year for Italian broadcasters given the current state of the transition to digital terrestrial TV (due to be completed nationwide by 2012) and the digital radio experiments now under way. The event will include hands-on sessions about digital TV and digital radio.
