The 10th Annual European
10 April 2019, Thon Hotel EU, Brussels
2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the European E-Commerce conference. 2019 is also a year of unique political challenges for the European Union. How should the next EU Commission approach the e-commerce sector?
This year's conference
Celebrating its 10th anniversary year, The Annual European E-commerce Conference was once again a key forum for the discussion of European e-commerce policy. The past ten years has seen continual growth in the European e-commerce sector, with consumers instinctively turning to online markets places and platforms to purchase goods and services. Yet there remain huge opportunities for growth within the sector, particularly around cross-border e-commerce.
There are challenges of course. Europe remains a market of national countries and this brings a variety of idiosyncrasies, such as market maturity, technology adoption, postal and delivery constraints, spending power and cultural specificities to name a few. This year’s conference will look at the technological trends shaping the future of e-commerce and will analyse the state of the e-commerce landscape across Europe and internationally, exploring the upcoming developments in the sector.
A big thank you to the 140+ delegates who attended the event - we hope to host you once again next year!
