Information 2017 Forum

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 address information.

Lunches will be served at the “Pfalzkeller”, which is just a two minute walk from the fonrum venue. The forum dinner takes place at the Einsteinsaal at Hotel Einstein.
