Karlsruhe, May 2, 2013 – On the back of the HOSTING & SERVICE PROVIDER SUMMIT’s successful debut last year, cloud technology providers, hosting companies and service providers are once again descending on Frankfurt, Germany on May 2 and 3, 2013 for this year’s event.

Star-studded keynote speeches, user reports, discussion panels and networking events give participants a chance to evaluate the latest trends, technologies and business prospects.

“We are delighted to get the chance to share our expertise in the world of international e-commerce with industry experts at such a top-class event and make an active contribution through Katja Speck’s speech on risks and opportunities in international e-commerce.” says Michael Konrad, CEO of asknet AG. asknet offers localized e-commerce platforms and all corresponding services, such as international and local payment methods.
