About the Organisers




EDiMA, the European Digital Media Association, is an alliance of Internet and new media companies whose members include Amazon EU, Apple, eBay, Expedia, Google, Microsoft, MIH Group, Nokia, Yahoo! Europe, Orange and others. EDiMA’s members provide Internet and new media platforms offering users a wide range of online services, including the provision of audiovisual content, media, E-commerce, communications and information/search services.

EDiMA represents Internet platform businesses in EU policy formation, on matters affecting the online environment and believes EU policy should maximise the development of new online services and business models to the benefit of innovators and EU consumers. Accordingly, EDiMA follows and is engaged at EU-level in regulatory and policy developments relating to content online, intellectual property rights in the online environment, the liability regime for Internet intermediaries, consumer rights issues related to E-Commerce and the use of online platforms, and more broadly, the development of a European Digital Single Market facilitating innovative online services. EDiMA supports policy initiatives that are pro-consumer and promote innovation and growth in the Internet sector and digital economy.




EMOTA, the European Multi-channel and Online Trade Association, is the umbrella organisation of at present 23 national associations representing the interests of e-retailers and multi-channel distance sellers.


EMOTA members’ associate companies offer a competitve range of goods and services including clothing, books, consumer electronics, cosmetics, furniture, gardening articles and wines. As early adopters of online technology, they have seen their internet operations make impressive progress over the past few years. In some European markets the internet is already, by some distance, the dominant channel.


EMOTA listens to opinions and ideas of its members, European lawmakers, business leaders and consumers, and builds consensus by combining the best of what distance sellers need to remain successful and what their costumers need to be satisfied.
