The Westminster eForum is a division of Westminster Forum Projects, an impartial and cross-party organisation which has no policy agenda of its own. Forums operated by Westminster Forum Projects enjoy considerable support from within Parliament and Government.

Please note there is a charge for most delegates, although no-one is excluded on the basis of ability to pay (see below).


The focus:
Harnessing the potential of emerging technologies and platforms such as smartphones, connected-TV, search and social media. Evolving advertising regulation and data protection laws.

The extended Advertising Standards Authority remit over online marketing activity. Challenges facing EU member states implementing the Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive. The possible implications of the European Commission's ‘comprehensive' data protection review for the use of consumer data by digital marketing agencies.

Key discussion points:

  • The trending technological innovations and techniques being employed by digital marketers, and the emerging areas for future development such as connected-TV, social media, search engine optimisation (SEO), augmented reality and NFC (Near-Field Communications)
  • The effect of the ASA's expanded remit on the online marketing industry, the options for future development and whether the CAP Code and AVMS Directive provide adequate regulatory oversight
  • The European Union's Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive, its adoption by the UK and the possible impact on digital marketing
  • The EU's ongoing review of data protection law and the challenges changes will pose to the use of personal data by the marketing industry.
