ARCON and Universul Juridic Publishing House

ARCON – Romanian Association of Competition Law – in partnership with Universul Juridic Publishing House are delighted to announce the launch of a series of four debates on highly important topics of Competition Law, currently raising steep challenges among the practitioners from both the local and the E.U. markets.

The events aim at offering the interested parties – such as judges, representatives of public authorities, academics, lawyers, business representatives and students – the possibility to exchange ideas, points of view and concerns on some very debated issues at the moment. The events will take place in Bucharest in September, October and November 2023 and will engage online and onsite audiences by providing the perfect hybrid event platform.

We hereby have the pleasure of inviting you to our first event in this series, namely “VBER Modernization”. Although adopted in 2022, given the limited practice of the Romanian Competition Council, the new Vertical Block Exemption Regulation has not been thoroughly debated and explained in Romania, thus creating an excellent opportunity and timing for a professional exchange of ideas.
