Consumers International Summit 2019

‹ Back
The connected future is here. Imagine the possibilities. #GetIoTSmart

Consumers International in partnership with the Consumer Directorate-General of Portugal, with the support of Portuguese Ministry of Economy, will host its first global digital consumer summit, bringing together consumer experts from around the world with the global digital industry.

The Internet Society values our partnership with Consumers International, and our shared focus on creating a safer, more trusted Internet for everyone. We are proud to join as lead partner for the summit, and we will work together on a wide range of initiatives to increase consumer trust online.

The summit will be held in Portugal and will run from the 30 April 2019 for two days, preceded by side events the day before (29 April 2019) and a member exclusive day of learning and sharing and Consumers International general assembly the day after (2 May 2019). The summit’s theme is ‘Digital Hive‘.

The summit will convene a uniquely broad group of contributors including consumer organisations from around the globe and representatives from business, civil society and governments, bringing together unique perspectives on the digital world, its possibilities and potential pitfalls.

Do your devices know more about the Internet than you do? Time to get smart and #SecureIt!
