AAI Announces First Two Events of 2020
The American Antitrust Institute has announced the topics for its first two events of the year:
- March 24 Competition Roundtable How Should Technology Change the Antitrust Approach to Markets?
- June 17 Annual Policy Conference: Where Do We Go from Here? Priorities for Moving Antitrust Forward.
On Tuesday, March 24, 2020, the American Antitrust Institute will host the competition roundtable “How Should Technology Change the Antitrust Approach to Markets?” at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The roundtable will take up the question of how the dimensions of markets evolve with technological change and how antitrust enforcement accounts for this evolution in defining relevant markets – an often controversial issue in antitrust investigations. The half-day event will feature two panels and a roundtable discussion that bring together experts in enforcement, business, academia, and advocacy. Panelists will be announced soon. Learn more here.
On June 17, 2020, the American Antitrust Institute will host its 21st Annual Policy Conference: Where Do We Go from Here? Priorities for Moving Antitrust Forward. Four conference panels will address cutting edge issues that frame the larger conversation around flagging enforcement and responses to it, including the rise of state activism, new opportunities for private enforcement, and legislative antitrust reform. The conference will include a gala luncheon featuring a keynote speaker, the presentation of the 2020 AAI Antitrust Achievement Award, and the Jerry S. Cohen Award for Antitrust Scholarship. This conference will appeal to a wide cross section of the antitrust community — federal and private enforcers, legislators and policymakers, public interest advocates, and competition regulators.
