The new Ecommerce Europe headquarters are located at a prime location, a stone throw away from the three most powerful law making institutions of Europe: the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council. The move embodies Ecommerce Europe’s ambitions: As a relatively young organisation, it has grown rapidly in terms of membership and influence. Only in this month, Ecommerce Europe has welcomed two new members: aCommerce Team (Austria) and GRECA (Greece).
