Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

4th Chillin’Competition Conference (20 November 2018) – The Programme

with 7 comments


We are exactly two months away from the annual Chillin’Competition conference. This time it will be bigger and better than ever.

  • The conference (with thanks to the IEE) will take place at the Auditorium of the ULB (Salle Dupréel, Avenue Jeanne 44, Brussels); it will kick off at 9.15 am.
  • Registrations will open on Friday 19 October at 10 am Brussels time via a link that will be made available on the blog. As you know, in the past three years all tickets were gone within just a few minutes, so hurry up!
  • If you are travelling over 1,000 km and need to plan in advance, drop us a line and we will secure you a spot in exchange for the effort;
  • The conference will be free thanks to the sponsors that make the multi-sided business model possible. If your organization would like to contribute as a sponsor, please drop us a line;
  • Last year we gave out one of these mugs to all attendees. This time we will try to top that. 
  • Here is the programme:

  2. A friend of mine gave me her ticket to attend the conference. Is it possible to change the name on the ticket or are the tickets name-bound?
