The 2005 Conference was the third of a series of Ministerial eGovernment Conferences. Started in 2001 under the Belgian Presidency of the European Council, it was successfully followed by the second conference of its kind under the Italian Presidency in 2003.

The conferences were launched under the eEurope initiative and have been an ideal forum to share learning and experiences between European administrations and stakeholders, review case histories of good practice, discuss future priorities and achieve high level political support across Europe.

The Conference will host a Supplier Exhibition Showcase in the MICC’s Great Nothern Hall and will be open to delegates throughout the duration of the event.
