During PRIA Competition 2021 conference you will benefit from hearing legislative novelties regarding competition, high-level analysis and case studies of the most important competition investigations of this year.
The focus is still on the fight against cartels, abuse of dominant companies in their activity sector, mergers and acquisitions, and against unfair competition.
Therefore, competition policies must be known and understood by all those involved in the economy. Companies must know ways of how they can be protected by legislation if they become victims of anti-competitive practices, and which are the penalties they can receive if they decide not to respect competition rules. It is very important for companies to know these regulations in the business field, but for individuals.
Participate to PRIA Competition Conference to analyze the legislation novelties and challenges, but also to find out when they will enter into force. Meet the most important representatives of the Competition Council and other state authorities, representatives of Chambers of Commerce and embassies, representatives from the energy, retail, telecom, media market, the construction and real estate, IT&C, banking sector, pharmaceutical market, transport and logistics, tourism and mass media.
