Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

ITHACA COMPETITION CONFERENCE 2023 (3-5 August) | Registration via Eventbrite open!

leave a comment »

Many readers will remember the inaugural Ithaca Competition Conference, which took place in the Summer of 2018. It has long been known that returning to the island of Ithaca takes a while. This time has not been an exception. Now that the pandemic is firmly behind us, Peter Alexiadis has put together the (epic) programme for the second edition.

You can take a look at it here. As you will see, it is full of superstars (from civil service, practice and academia).

The event will take place over three days in August (3rd to 5th). The start is strong: a panel with no fewer four former Chief Competition Economists at DG Comp, (Kai-Uwe Kuhn, Damien Neven, Pierre Regibeau and Tommaso Valletti) who will be looking back and into the future in conversation with Jorge Padilla.

That would be enough to make the programme attractive, but there is even more: a panel on digital (with, just to mention a few, Filomena Chirico and Alex de Streel) and one on energy (with a dream team that includes Martin Cave, Leigh Hancher, Adrien de Hauteclocque and Carole Maczkovics, all chaired by the OECD’s Ruben Maximiano).

The conference will close with a discussion about the direction of travel in competition law and policy featuring, among others, such enforcement luminaries as Cani Fernandez, Ioannis Lianos and Henri Piffaut.

You can register for the event here. Please note, that, if you are a competition law student, you can register at a discount and the organisation will provide affordable aaccommodation.

The programme includes a very detailed Q&A, including on how to get there. If you have any questions, I am sure Peter will be delighted to answer them!
