Event Description

As the European Commission is preparing an ambitious review of the EU’s digital rulebook and consulting extensively on the telecoms framework, connectivity needs of the future, platforms and standards, ECTA’s Annual Regulatory Conference will explore a wide range of timely policy issues in a series of keynote speeches and panel discussions.
 
Our world is moving online with significant consequences for not only end-users and industry but also digital policies. Senior policy makers, industry representatives and experts will discuss the emerging ‘Internet of Things’, the connectivity needs of a connected world, investments in the digital highways of the future, preventing new digital divides, tackling monopolies and duopolies, platforms, spectrum, the institutional set-up of regulating the Digital Single Market and many more exciting topics.
