Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Chillin’Competition Conference 2019- The Program

with one comment


It’s time to start disclosing some details:

The Chillin’Competition conference marking our 10th anniversary will take place on 9 December 2019 at L’Arsenal (Chaussée de Wavre 950, 1040 Bruxelles, pictured above). Registrations will open up next Tuesday (5 November) at Brussels time via a link that will be made available on the blog.

We are thrilled that the conference will feature keynote interventions by Commissioner Vestager and General Court President Marc van der Woude. We are  also very grateful to all speakers for accepting our invitation to focus on what we believe are the current key themes in competition law,  and to our soon-to-be disclosed sponsors (anyone interested can still drop us a line).
