General Forum Information

Founded in 1994 by Prof. Dr. iur. Dr. rer. pol. h.c. Carl Baudenbacher, the St.Gallen International Competition Law Forum ICF has firmly established itself as one of the leading events on competition law.

High-ranking speakers inform about and debate on the current trends in European and International Competition Law. The Forum is the annual meeting point for more than 200 participants from advocacy, the business world, the judiciary, academia as well as public authorities (please see this site for a list of past attendees). The two-day event distinguishes itself from other competition conferences not only by its quality and its reputation, but also by the “je ne sais quoi” of its supporting program.

The forum will take place in the St.Gallen “Kantonsratssaal” (Parliament of the Canton of St.Gallen). Please refer to our location widget for all relevant addresses.

Lunches will be served at the “Pfalzkeller”, which is a one minute walk from the ICF forum venue. The ICF forum dinner will take place at Hotel Einstein, in the “Einsteinsaal”.

Forum language
The forum language is English. No translation services are provided.

For the hearing impaired
Individual hearing support systems are not available. However there is a “FM Hearing Aid System” in the cloakroom of the Kantonsratssaal and you can tune your personal hearing aids (which need to be FM compatible) with the FM hearing Aid system.

Participation fee
The participation fee for both days is CHF 1’500 (cca €1300) and CHF 1’000 (cca €865) for one day, per person including electronic documentation, refreshments during the forum breaks, lunches on Thursday and Friday as well as the ICF forum dinner on Thursday evening.

Companies sending several participants (two or more) can enjoy a reduction of ten percent of the participation fees. This discount cannot be combined with other offers.
