Why join EMOTA?

The European Union is increasing its work on regulating all aspects of the European e-commerce supply chain. These regulations have the potential to benefit e-commerce trade by removing barriers to cross-border trade, or create additional complexity, costs, obstacles and undermine existing and potential business models. Therefore, it is important to have a strong, credible, e-commerce industry that speaks with one collective voice. By joining EMOTA you will not only contribute to this goal, but also gain privileged and direct access to EU policy-makers, as well as gain a network of skilled peers all over Europe - people who know their respective markets and can offer you advice on all sorts of things.
