Global E-commerce Summit 2017: 12 – 14 June 2017


The Global E-commerce Summit is the  leading annual e-commerce event hosted by Ecommerce Europe and organized by BBP Media.  Now in our 9th season, the Global E-commerce Summit provides digital B2C commercial stakeholders a platform to learn about the latest and most impactful disruptions, develop and nurture professional networks and showcase e-commerce ecosystem services.

This year, Ecommerce Europe is presenting four policy sessions within the Global E-commerce Summit program. The association representing over 25,000 online retailers in Europe has invited high-level policymakers, prominent e-commerce companies and promising start-ups, to discuss the effect of upcoming policy changes in the European e-commerce sector. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss and prepare themselves for new rules and future regulations, and most importantly have a say in the debate concerning pressing policy choices which are not yet decided upon. At the same time, participants will learn more on how Ecommerce Europe is shaping the market by proposing innovative solutions without the need of creating new legislation.

Ecommerce Europe decided to dive in four main topics which are, in our opinion, of great importance for online merchants as they have the potential to help them in increasing their sales and reducing regulatory burdens. In a nutshell, the workshops will cover the following topics:

  1. Changing consumer legislation in Europe: Retailer and consumer rights

Tuesday 13 June 2017 – morning

  1. Proposal for new VAT rules for cross-border e-commerce: How could it benefit online shops?

Tuesday 13 June 2017- afternoon

  1. Thinking outside the parcel box: Let’s turn the analog parcel into a digital and interconnected one!

Wednesday 14 June 2017 – morning

  1. The role of digital currencies and blockchain in e-commerce: Security vs. innovation

Wednesday 14 June 2017 – afternoon
