"The MCMS 2017, now in its third year, will feature impressive speakers who will provide more and deeper insight into the trends of our fast moving industry. The MCMS is a 'must attend' for everybody in media and e-commerce who want to stay or be on top in the future in a fully digitised business environment with permanently increasing competition."

Kristina Ehle, Morrison & Foerster LLP, Berlin, Germany and participant in the 2016 MCMS

"The exchange of knowledge and thoughts on digital developments and ideas with selected legal, technology and business experts from across Europe both in the panel discussions and also informally between sessions, were inspiring and provided new perspectives”.

Peter Matzneller, (Die Medienanstalten), Berlin, Germany, and participant in the 2016 MCMS

"The MCMS congress is an ideal place to widen my perspective to areas that are usually not at the centre of public debate, but which are of significant importance to the audiovisual sector.”

Emerald de Leeuw, (EuroComply), Dublin and participant in the 2016 MCMS.

"The MCMS annual conference should be attended by all professionals who want to establish themselves in the online retailing space and are interested in meeting people who are ahead of the curve”.

Marie-Laure Barrau, Direct Response Consulting (DRC), participant in the 2016 MCMS

"The MCMS Congress is a unique place to discuss how change impacts our industry. Speakers highlight what is going on and discuss what can be done to tackle those changes. The congress therefore offers a great opportunity to share best practices, discuss trends and ways to find competitive advantage."

Richard Kastelein, Agora Innovative Media, U.S., and participant in the 2016 MCMS

“The mcms was a nice mixture of different concepts and different people. It was good not just to look inwards but also looking out... and the venue was wonderful”!
