Big Data advertising - EU in a clash between regulations and innovations

Join us September 14th, 14.30, Debate Hall!

The European Commission is pushing hard on its Digital Single Market agenda, with new legislative or policy proposals emerging virtually every week. Big data is as much of a buzz word in Brussels as in companies' marketing departments. But will all the attention bring changes that enable innovation and investment in online advertising, or just tie the ecosystem up in knots? From data protection to harmonisation of contract rules, to platform regulation and plans to encourage the free flow of data, EU regulation is business-critical, creating compliance challenges but also commercial opportunities. Join us to learn where you can get the information you need to stay on the right side of the law, and to help shape Europe's future digital economy.
