Consumer and Competition Day

Location: Europe Building, Amsterdam

Meeting between policy experts, enforcement experts, and consumer and trade associations on competition and consumer protection.

Organised by the Ministry of Economic Affairs (EZ) and the Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM), this interactive conference and networking event focuses on innovation-inspired policy from the perspective of competition and consumer protection. Participants will attend presentations and break-out sessions on innovation-inspired policy and enforcement, with an emphasis on digitisation.

Potential themes – based in part on the priorities of European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and the ministry and ACM agendas – are digitisation, the consumer as provider, consumer confidence online and effective European enforcement.
