ETNO-MLex Regulatory Summit 2015

The Digital Single Market Strategy is set to translate into a loud call for action to all pro-digital stakeholders in Europe. In the wake of the presentation of the Strategy, business leaders, regulators and policymakers gathered at the ETNO-MLex Regulatory Summit to discuss the digital priorities for 2015.

ETNO once again partnered with MLex, the leading provider of insight, analysis and commentary to regulation and competition specialists in Europe, the US, Brazil and China.

Now in its fourth successful year, the Summit created a platform for up to 200 high-level delegates, representing telecom operators, the EU institutions, regulators, academics, investors and other industry stakeholders, to discuss key EU regulatory issues.

The event’s high level panels focused on two main aspects:

  • An in-depth debate on how the rules of the current regulatory framework should be re-defined in light of today’s competitive landscape.
  • A general overview and assessment of the regulatory and policy initiatives of the new European Commission – with a specific regard to competition in the digital value chain at large.
