Welcome to the conference page for the 67th Annual ABA Section of Antitrust Law Spring Meeting! Mark your calendars and join us in Washington D.C. on March 27-29, 2019 for the largest competition and consumer protection law conference in the world. The Spring Meeting brings together more than 3,300 practitioners from 65 countries to learn from an esteemed group of government enforcers, economists, private practitioners, in-house counsel, and academics.
Several highlights of the Spring Meeting include more than 60 substantive panels about the latest legal developments (including litigation, international, and consumer protection "tracks"), a mock trial, and numerous opportunities to hear enforcers from around the world discuss competition and consumer protection policy. In addition to the educational content, there are numerous opportunities to network with your colleagues at lunches, receptions and at the Spring Dinner.
Guests are also able to use the Group Code ABA when booking reservations on http://www.monaco-dc.com/ or over the phone through central reservations, 800-546-7866.
We recommend the following sites for international attendees making travel arrangements to the United States.
We encourage anyone traveling from outside the U.S., to attend an ABA conference, to verify the requirements to enter the U.S.
We can provide a standard letter from the ABA Section of Antitrust Law confirming the reason you or your guests wish to enter the country and request that a visa be issued promptly.
We are only able to provide visa letters for delegates whose conference registration fees have been paid in full and are not from countries embargoed by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Control. If we have already supplied you with a visa letter for your guest(s) and the name of that guest subsequently changes, we can only provide another visa letter upon receipt of the original letter. The ABA reserves the right to refuse to issue visa letters at its discretion.
The ABA will provide a full refund of registration fees for delegates whose request for a visa was denied.
To obtain a visa letter, please contact us by email email@example.com with Visa Request in the subject line.
