Your Guide to a Tech-Focused Antitrust Spring Meeting

· April 9, 2018

Categories

The 66th Annual ABA Section of the Antitrust Law Spring Meeting in Washington, D.C. — the largest competition and consumer protection law conference in the world — is this week.

It will bring together more than 3,000 practitioners from 60 countries, feature over 60 panels on the latest developments in antitrust law, and (perhaps most importantly) will include some pretty great antitrust-related social events.

A number of these panels and events will focus on the digital economy, as many of this year’s most high-profile antitrust debates have centered on the application of antitrust law to the technology industry and its innovations.

To gain insight into these debates, and fully take advantage of all that the Spring Meeting has to offer, we have compiled this list of cannot-miss events related to the tech industry, as well as happy hours and dinners going on this week. 

(All events are occurring at the Marriott Marquis unless otherwise indicated.)

Competition

Some, if not all of society’s most useful innovations are the byproduct of competition. In fact, although it may sound counterintuitive, innovation often flourishes when an incumbent is threatened by a new entrant because the threat of losing users to the competition drives product improvement. The Internet and the products and companies it has enabled are no exception; companies need to constantly stay on their toes, as the next startup is ready to knock them down with a better product.
