Foster Moore had the pleasure of sponsoring, participating, and presenting at the recent EBRA conference in Paris. Our congratulations go out to the Conseil National des Greffiers des Tribunaux de Commerce and the European Business Registry Association board for hosting another highly successful conference.
Attending the EBRA conference in Paris was truly a pleasure for Foster Moore, as we had the opportunity to reconnect with our colleagues and friends in the global business register domain in Europe. The stunning city of Paris served as the perfect backdrop for this international conference, which drew 150 attendees from 45 different jurisdictions. With a focus on sustainability in an ever-changing environment, the various panels, chaired by members of the EBRA board, sparked lively discussions and encouraged attendees to share their perceptions and opinions on the topics presented.
During the EBRA conference, Foster Moore took the stage to present their insights on the 'Future of Registers'. They delved into the transformative periods in recent decades that have been spurred by technological advancements. Foster Moore went on to challenge the custodians of Business Registers, urging them to review their operating models in light of the significant changes in their environments. The dynamic nature of the business registry landscape, coupled with the evolving needs of consumers, necessitates the adoption of a new operating model. Foster Moore advocates for interoperability not only between Business Registers but also with their peers at a jurisdictional level. They stress that creating a Target Operating Model that produces efficiencies in a register requires the formulation of a statement of best practice that needs to be defined by registers for registers. You can read more about this in their thought leadership papers, Enabling Digital Government and Registers The New Frontier, where we discuss in much more detail the topics presented at EBRA23.
