From: "Harald A. Summa" <summa@eco.de>

I hereby inform you of an important meeting, which is  a Plenary Session to
prepare for the launch of a Europe-wide collaboration in electronic commerce,
tentatively being called _Electronic Commerce Europe_.

The meeting will be held at the Palais des Congres, room Dynastie A,
Coudenberg 3, 1000 Brussels at 16.00 - 18.00 on Tuesday 26th November 1996.
The meeting is being hosted and opened by Mr. G. Metakides, DGIII/F, Director
of the ESPRIT Programme on the premises of the European IT Conference, EITC
As you know, working groups were established on 25th September to prepare for
this collaboration over recent months. The purpose of the meeting is to
present the reports from these working groups, including a plan of action,
and to appoint an Interim Board that will carry the initiative forward
towards formal launch early in 1997.
The objective of the proposed Electronic Commerce Europe is to strengthen the
collaboration of existing European and national associations in promoting the
development and uptake of electronic commerce in Europe. The initiative is to
undertake joint actions in order to overcome the real-life problems that
business, consumers and administrations experience today in using electronic
commerce. It will be a neutral non-profit making organisation, oriented
towards the needs of European business and administration, within a global
business environment.
It is planned that the proposed Electronic Commerce Europe should be open to
any representative organisation at national or international level, including
awareness centres, standard boards, and specific sectoral groups. The only
qualification is that they should be open, public and be actively involved in
envisaged furthering electronic commerce in Europe.

In case you attend the meeting and also wish to visit the EITC exhibition,
please do not hesitate to ask for a free entrance pass at my secretariat (tel

Yours sincerely,
Rosalie Zobel
