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.
