We are hopeful that on 7 October 2021 our 19th Competition Congress will take place live at the KIT Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam.

There will be more than 25 speakers, including Olivier Guersent (Director-General DG Competition) and Pinar Akman (University of Leeds) on the Digital Markets Act, and Ruben Elkerbout and Anke Prompers who will present the case law overview. We will also have parallel sessions on economic highlights, verticals, FDI, private enforcement, competition, privacy & consumer law and a session organised by the judiciary. Following the parallel sessions, we will present the thesis awards 2021 and conclude the congress with an interview with Martijn Snoep.

Finally, after a year of Zoom meetings, we are happy to invite you to dinner at the Koningszaal (King’s Hall) of Artis Amsterdam Royal Zoo.

We look forward to seeing you again on 7 October.

On behalf of the board of Stichting Ontwikkelingen Mededingingsrecht, sincerely,

Weijer VerLoren van Themaat
