On March 24, CCIA Europe and EDiMA, with the support from a wide range of stakeholders working on Internet matters, invite you to join us for our latest publication event, “The Internet Opportunity”.

Our latest joint report, “The Internet – the New Helping the Old”, illustrates how the Internet helps traditional industries to remain competitive and Europe to maintain its social model.
