The “Friends of the BSC” have the pleasure of announcing their next event. The event will be held virtually on Thursday 16 June 2022 at 12.00-13.00 noon (CET).
We are very happy to welcome Frank Wijckmans, member of the Brussels Bar and professor at the Brussels School of Competition, as a speaker to this event. He will speak on “Cruising the brand-new Vertical Block Exemption regime in search of the highlights”.
Regulation 2022/720 and the brand-new Vertical Guidelines set the competition law scene for supply and distribution agreements for the next 12 years. The rules on vertical agreements are probably the most frequently used part of European competition law. No practitioner can afford to remain unaware of the recent developments. Frank Wijckmans (professor at the BSC who supported DG Competition as an expert advisor) takes you on a one hour cruise through the new regime. What has changed? What remains in place? Any urgent action needed to adapt your agreements? Are there new opportunities or rather traps for the unwary? The second half of the event will provide for a Q&A session.
