This inaugural conference, co-organized by CPI and CCIA, aims to generate an open and cutting-edge debate on competition law and economics in the tech industry. Doubtless, the last decade has seen a growing thirst for innovation in many industries worldwide. Innovation certainly makes economies more dynamic and competitive, but it can pose challenges for legislative and regulatory bodies trying to keep pace with rapidly evolving businesses. This conference will address key issues affecting the tech industry in this climate of constant changes. Measuring market concentration, the consumer welfare standard, competition on/via the internet, is monopoly power rising?, are some of the topics that will be discussed by leading antitrust academics, enforcers, and private practitioners.
