You may be finding it difficult to keep track of the pace with which electronic

this exciting and rapidly developing market, EEMA, together with the valued support 
of the experts from Communications Week International, EDI-TIE, ECE, EDIFORUM, 
ECP.NL, EDIFICE and through extensive research with its members has put together 
a major, tightly focused, three day event. Electronic Commerce Europe 98.  It 
is the only Pan-European event to address the challenges and opportunities that 
Internet commerce brings and its aim is to bring you totally up to date on the 
current strategies and developments by acknowledged leaders in their respective 

"Time"! - Captain James T Kirk is quoted as calling it "the final frontier" - 
increasing demands are being made on existing staff, "getting more from less" 
is a current trend. By joining an organisation such as EEMA and attending its 
workshops and conferences you can achieve significant savings of your time and 
resources - let EEMA monitor the market and through our specialist groups keep 
you updated in the areas of the market, which are critical to you.

This is a conference organised by the industry for the industry, with special 
focus on large and small users; any surplus revenue is reinvested in creating 
greater awareness of the benefits of electronic commerce. My colleagues and I

Formed in March 1987, EEMA is an international, non-profit making organisation 
which provides an independent forum for the creation of a market platform for 
all participants in electronic commerce - from users, hardware and software vendors, 
and government bodies to public and private systems and service providers. EEMA 
members includes companies involved in business transactions via EDI, E-mail, 
using Directories, the Internet and World-Wide Web, Computer Fax and Voice Messaging.

As the leading European professional association in the electronic market place 
EEMA's role is to help organisations utilise the wide range of electronic business 
communications, technologies and services available to improve corporate effectiveness. 
This involves not only education of the business community regarding the uses 
and availability of electronic commerce but also, addressing industry issues 
through the relevant international and governmental bodies.

EEMA is dedicated to promoting the use and advancement of electronic commerce 
and business communications through hosting and sponsoring a dynamic series of 
conferences and committees.  Member companies have access to the leading European 
electronic commerce knowledge base, specialist workshops and seminars.


Cosmopolitan and colourful, Amsterdam has always been a thriving commercial and 
industrial centre. In Amsterdam, the Dutch Capital, you can mix business with 
pleasure as nowhere else. The mixture of picturesque historic sites, haute cuisine, 
nightlife, galleries and museums has made Amsterdam into one of the world's best 
congress cities.

Amsterdam is a relatively small city by European standards. Many of the points 
of interest are within easy walking distance. Public transport in Amsterdam - 
buses, trams and metro - is most efficient, modern, reliable and cheap.
