Event: Vertical Restraints in the Digital Economy: VBER reform and the future of distribution (Brussels, 30 – 31 January 2020)

Vertical restraints, inasmuch as they relate to the conditions according to which participants in any value chain may purchase, sell or resell goods or services, are ubiquitous. Conversely, Article 101 TFEU and the Vertical Block Exemption Regulation (VBER) have had over time an enormous impact on the design of trading terms and conditions across the whole EU economy. That impact has been compelled by significant changes in the enforcement of Article 101 TFEU towards vertical restraints since the turn of the century, as enforcement moved into the hands of national competition authorities, for the most part, only recently arising renewed interest at EU level in the aftermath of the digital sector inquiry. The conference will aim to take stock of modernisation in the field of vertical restraints, its achievements and shortcomings, while eliciting solutions for the future, including in relation to new issues that have arisen as a result of digitisation, changing business models and political concerns about the sharing of profits across value chains
