Dear Colleagues and Friends,
We would like to invite you to the LIDC Congress 2014 that
will take place in Turin on 18-21 September 2014.
The Italian Group is honoured to host this important annual
LIDC event in Turin, a city rich in art, culture, sport, science
and economics.
In close co-operation with our colleagues from the LIDC
Council, the Bureau and the Scientific Committee, we have
prepared a programme focusing on hot topics of competition
law which will be introduced and discussed by reputable
specialists in the field – in the form of sessions and panel
discussions.
We took a great effort to prepare a favourable ambience for
fruitful exchange of knowledge that has been always typical
of the LIDC meetings. We also hope that the congress
provides the opportunity of bringing together the worlds of
law and business with the representatives of state and EU
authorities in order to discuss the most topical issues.
Last but not least, we would like you to experience the
Baroque elegance of this royal historical capital and
technological centre.
I hope that your participation at the LIDC Congress 2014 will
bring you satisfaction in both the scientific and social
aspects of the event.
See you in Turin!
Yours sincerely,
Giuseppe Sena
President of the Italian Group of the LIDC
Gusztáv Bacher
President of the LIDC

INFORMATION
Turin has over 2,000 years of history behind it: a great past that lives by looking to the
future.
The first grand capital of the House of Savoy becoming later the first capital of the Kingdom
of Italy, it is also regarded as one of the European capitals of the Baroque style, the
automobile, chocolate.
A royal historical capital and technological centre, it is a fascinating and unexpected city. The
automotive industry was born here, together with electricity, aeronautics, the cinema and radio,
as well as some of the most famous brands in the world: Lavazza, Ferrero, Martini and
Carpano.
The originality of Turin is therefore to be found in its capacity to combine tradition and
innovation, experience and experimentation and to present itself as a dynamic reality, a sort of
laboratory, active in the world of art, culture, sport, science and work. Today, Turin is a reality
committed to a modernization process that is unique in the Italian panorama.
