Masters of Digital 2018” is the annual flagship event of DIGITALEUROPE, the leading trade association which represents the digital technology industry in Brussels and across Europe since 1999.

“Masters of Digital 2018” offers a unique opportunity for governments and businesses to discuss the forthcoming policy challenges impacting the Digital Economy and to identify the key enablers that will transform Europe digitally. The event will gather a broad range of high-level EU policy-makers and senior decision-makers from the digital technology industry.

“Masters of Digital 2018” offers the right mixture of high-level keynote insights, policy panel discussions, informal networking opportunities, technology showcases and… the first ever DIGITALEUROPE Award for SMEs.

During the event, the “DIGITALEUROPE SME Award 2018” will be given to a European SME which has proven to be digitally innovative and successful. DIGITALEUROPE has set up the SME award to publicly acknowledge the positive impact that SMEs have on the European Economy, and also to stress on the importance of a non-fragmented cross-border market enabling SMEs to scale up in Europe. Today, SMEs employ 93 million people and 99.8% of businesses operating in Europe are SMEs.
