Digital Executive Club Brussels - an initiative of WIK and IDATE

In 2011, WIK and IDATE have founded the „Digital Executive Club Brussels" that will focus on long-term challenges in the digital industry. The Club aims to provide a discussion forum for the representatives of leading companies regarding innovations and changes in telecoms, internet and media business.

The club, which is based on personal membership, meets regularly in Brussels to discuss a particular issue.

The next meeting on 'Digital China' will be held on 6 July 2017 in Brussels.
