18th Annual Conference: The Value of Antitrust

Date: Jun 21, 2017
Location: National Press Club, Washington DC

On June 21, the American Antitrust Institute will host its 18th Annual Conference. This year’s event will take up the important topic: The Value of Antitrust. The change in administration is an opportune time to take stock of why and how antitrust remains a central policy tool for promoting a market economy, competition, innovation, and consumer benefits. Growing concerns over declining competition, slowing rates of market entry, and inequality gaps have put antitrust into the spotlight. Mounting economic evidence on the effects of past mergers, efficiencies, and remedies has given competition enforcers and proponents of fair competition reasons to be more vigilant in scrutinizing further consolidation and potentially anticompetitive behavior. 

AAI's 18th Annual Conference will assess the value of antitrust in a number of ways, across four panels:

•  How Past Mergers Shape Future Enforcement – Prices, Efficiencies, and Remedies

•  Public and Private Enforcement – What Trends Tell Us About Their Relationship

•  Top Antitrust Cases That Changed Consumers’ Lives

•  Antitrust and Innovation

The agenda will be posted in the coming weeks.

The conference includes a gala luncheon featuring the presentation of the 2017 AAI Antitrust Achievement Award and the Jerry S. Cohen Award for Antitrust Scholarship.

We invite you to participate in this unique and timely one-day conference that will be attended by a broad segment of the competition enforcement and policy community. The program also includes time for networking with other attendees and members of the antitrust community, as well as AAI Advisory Board members, sponsors, and friends.
