The PCA brings together world-renowned experts in the III Lisbon Conference

The Portuguese Competition Authority (PCA) will be hosting world-renowned experts in competition law and economics at the III Lisbon Conference, which will take place on the 14th and 15th of January 2010, in Lisbon, Portugal.

With this Conference, the PCA aims to meaningfully contribute to debates on the most topical issues in competition law and economics. International experts will be in Portugal to discuss the most relevant developments in competition law and economics.

Over two dozen speakers will discuss ideas, opinions and concrete examples about some of the most relevant topics including two-sided markets, energy and intellectual property among others. The application of the competition rules in times of crisis, as well as their reconciliation with environmental concerns will also be debated.

The presence of internationally recognised experts from the European Union and the United States will provide an opportunity to reinforce transatlantic debate on how to apply and reconcile legislation from those jurisdictions.

The III Lisbon Conference will serve as a platform for the exchange of ideas and experiences on the various aspects of the defence and promotion of competition, contributing to a stronger Portuguese presence in the field of competition law and economics.

The quality of the speakers and moderators, along with the topics chosen for debate, will guarantee the III Lisbon Conference emerges as an excellent international conference,capable of attracting highly qualified participants, both from Portugal and from abroad, from a wide range of fields including politics and business, regulators, the judiciary, private and public legal practice, academia and the media.

The Conference will take place at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Conference Centre.

A detailed agenda and up-to-date information on the Conference, including registration is available on the PCA website.
