In addition, the IP/TMT commission will discuss a range of topics, such as:

The T.R.A.D.E. Commission will hold its fourth annual conference in parallel.

Topics will revolve around digitalization / its impact on distribution, Geo-blocking and omni channel sales. The discussions will also address the European Commission report on the Geo-Blocking Regulation which is due to be published by March 2020.
