.eu supports e-commerce at eShow Barcelona

Brussels, 27 February 2013 – EURid, the .eu registry, will attend eShow Barcelona in Spain on 13-14 March 2013 to promote .eu as a valuable online asset to more than 8 000 e-commerce professionals and to further raise the top-level domain’s visibility in the local market.

eShow is an annual international trade show which presents the latest developments in the e-commerce industry, including the online marketing, hosting and cloud, and social media sectors.

In addition to its exhibition (stand no. 54), EURid will attend ‘eCoffees’ – a unique opportunity to meet in small groups with online industry experts to debate the most current issues.

.eu registrations grew by 11.1% in Spain between Q3 2011 and Q3 2012, a great achievement in the current global economic climate. In terms of total number of registrations, Spain is one of the top 10 countries in the European Union.

World-class speakers

An important guest at this year’s eShow will be EMOTA, the European Multi-channel and Online Trade Association (www.emota.eu). On 14 March, EMOTA will host an international e-commerce forum in association with eShow Barcelona. The forum is a one-day conference where industry practitioners can share their ideas and insights on profitable cross-border trading and discuss the core issues that will define and shape Europe’s digital commerce agenda.

EURid’s Liaison Manager for Spain, Adriana León, will be available for interviews on both days of eShow. For more information, please contact press@eurid.eu.
