Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Chillin’Competition on tour: Vilnius (26 Oct), Brussels (7 Nov) and Tilburg (9 Nov), with a special offer for our readers!

with 2 comments


Autumn is here with us (as the pic above attests), and conference season, which is never over, appears to be picking up speed as days get shorter.

Many would never have told, but I took the picture last Saturday in central Vilnius. I was there – my first time ever in Lithuania – for a lecture at the competition authority. It was really enjoyable. I am grateful to Gintarė Surblytė-Namavičienė and Šarūnas Keserauskas for being such amazing hosts. I already look forward to coming back.

UCL | White & Case Brussels: Autumn Competition Law Conference (7 November)

On 7 November I will be in Brussels (a place that I have visited before) for the first Autumn Conference jointly organised by University College London and White & Case Brussels. The programme of this great initiative, which features yours truly on innovation (alongside much more prestigious specialists), is available here.

IMPORTANT: Makis Komninos and Ioannis Lianos, joint organisers of the conference, are kind enough to allow up to 15 of Chillin’Competition readers for free. When booking a ticket via this website, use this promotional code: lse-ibanez-colomo. Thank again, Ioannis and Makis!

TILEC 15th Anniversary Conference: Legal and Economic Challenges in Competition Policy (9 November)

A couple of days later, I will have the honour to be one of the speakers at the conference celebrating the 15 years of the Tilburg Law and Economics Center. I have always admired TILEC and have followed closely its many achievements over the years.

If you are interested in the programme and/or in signing up for it (I believe there are still a few spots available), please see the programme here.
