St. Martin´s Conference 2017

Traditionally, the Office for the Protection of Competition organizes the 11th Annual St. Martin´s Conference which will take place at the premises of the Office on 15 and 16 November.

The traditional introductory overview of recent trends and developments of the Czech and European competition law and policy will be followed by the Panel on Distortion of Competition by State Administration Authorities. The second panel will be dedicated to Dealing with Online Platforms focusing especially on digital single market strategy.

Following parallel workshops will be carried out during the second day:

  • Compliance and the enforcement of competition law;
  • Potential changes of merger notification thresholds.

The St. Martin´s Conference will be not only an unique event for exchanging information on the most significant trends and developments in the Czech and European competition law, but also an excellent opportunity for meeting of leading domestic as well as foreign experts from both – public and private sector and discussing various competition issues. Among others, representatives of the European Commission and academics will attend the conference too.

The working language of the conference will be Czech and English with simultaneous translation.
