The International Institute of Communications (IIC) annual conference will be held on 11-12 October in Brussels. 

"This year we will be in Brussels, the heart of the European Union. This is a particularly important time of change globally, but particularly in the European Union with a thrust towards a digital single market and developments within the structure of the Union as a whole.  Our mandate to facilitate free thinking in the digital market place starts right here and we look forward to stimulating discussions at a global level."

In an interconnected world, many companies need to think globally when they design their electronic marketing and underpinning consent systems. This seminar was a rare opportunity to hear directly from two key regulators about the pivotal issues of enforcement and consent.
