Chillin’Competition Conference 2019- The Videos

with 3 comments

Sponsors Chillin 2019

Thanks a million to all those of you who attended, sponsored, wanted to attend, or otherwise followed our conference last Monday. We felt it was interesting, chilled, decaffeinated ,and fun, and we were happy to see so many friends from all over the world. Vice-President Vestager did us the honor of announcing the revision of the market definition notice at the conference. General Court President van der Woude provided his insightful views on the past, present and future of EU judicial review. We are particularly grateful to the two of them for their support.

With this conference we always wanted to do something substantive but refreshing, and also something balanced, with no particular agenda. Thanks to you, to our sponsors and to the excellent speakers and friends who have accepted our invitations, this conference has become a significant event in only 5 editions.

This time we were “only” able to accomodate 450 people, while close to 500 remained in the waitlist (most of whom had registered on day 1!). We will do our best to fix that in the furure.  In case you couldn’t make it, here are the videos (which, however, do not capture the best thing about this conference: its atmosphere).

Here are the videos:

But we’ll try do something about that soon]
