Ecommerce Europe to hold AGM in Lugano

25 January 2019

Ecommerce Europe AGM co-hosted by NetComm Suisse


Jan 30th 2019

NetComm Suisse is delighted to announce that the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the intranational organization Ecommerce Europe will this year be held in Ticino alongside our Fashion Innovation Award (FIA) event at the splendid Villa Ciani in Lugano. The FIA is part of the week-long series of events organized by NetComm Suisse known as Fashion Innovation Week. The event will be co-hosted by MLL Legal and held under the High Patronage of the City of Lugano.

Ecommerce Europe is the voice of the European digital commerce sector. Through its 20 national e-commerce associations, the organization represents more than 75,000 companies selling goods and services online to consumers in Europe.

Ecommerce Europe choosing Lugano for their AGM comes at a crucial time for Swiss-EU relations. Political leaders from both sides are currently in the midst of ongoing talks aimed at establishing a joint framework for future trade, however progress seems to have stalled as of late. The impasse is particularly unfortunate given that bidirectional trade between the two has grown immensely over the past year with imports up 5.7% and imports surpassing the 200 billion franc mark for the first time in 2018

It is hoped that the arrival of the Ecommerce Europe AGM will be a further stimulus and an invitation to dialogue between Switzerland and Europe with a view to establishing a balanced agreement in the mutual interest of all concerned.

NetComm Suisse has long been a member of Ecommerce Europe: our President Carlo Terreni even sits as an Official Observer on the Board of Directors, itself composed of the following eminent persons:

François Momboisse (President)

Wijnand Jongen (Vice-President Operations)

Marc Lolivier (Vice-President Public Affairs)
