Dear ACC Europe Members,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Summer edition of the ACC Europe newsletter. Summer has finally arrived and I am sure many of you are looking forward to a well-deserved vacation.
In this edition we bring to you, as always, news and noteworthy articles from in and around Europe, upcoming events in your area and, last but not least, a retrospective on this year's Annual Conference in Cascais.
It was a pleasure seeing so many of our members join us last month in Portugal and engage in the our Annual Conference's splendid programme, the many fruitful discussions around it and most importantly with each other during the many networking breaks.
Furthermore, this edition features an article from ACC Europe Gold Sponsors, K&L Gates on the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It makes for a very interesting read and we are privileged to share with you some additional materials on the subject as part of this newsletter.
Without further ado, however, let me wish you all a pleasant summer and we look forward to meeting you soon again either at one of our many local events or at next year’s Annual Conference in Paris .
With kind regards,
ACC Europe Secretary and Chair, Communications Working Group
Director / Group General Counsel BearingPoint Service GmbH
