The 22nd edition of the Competition Congress will take place on Thursday, October 10, 2024.

2024 is not just another election year. This may well be the election year when more voters worldwide will go to the polls than ever in history. At least 64 countries, representing about 49% of the world's population, will hold elections in 2024. It is therefore not without reason that we start this edition of the conference with the keynote by Professor Ariel Ezrachi, focusing on the role of competition law in protecting democracy.

During the conference we will discuss various developments, both in plenary and in parallel sessions. After the keynote, Ruben Elkerbout and Ellen Römkes discuss the competition law rulings of the past year.

In the afternoon there are six fascinating parallel sessions on economic highlights, DMA, merger control, the New Competition Tool, private damages and Sports & Competition. After the tea break we will again award a number of thesis prizes.

We traditionally close with the interview with Martijn Snoep.

We look forward to seeing you again.

On behalf of the board of the Foundation for Developments in Competition Law, sincerely,

Gulbahar Tezel
