Event Overview

EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR THE EARLY BIRD REGISTRATIONS : 20.03.2008 In 2004, AIJA held a telecom seminar in Vilnius dealing with the 2003 Telecommunications Regulatory Framework Directives of the European Union and the challenges that in particular the then 10 new EU Member States had to face. Since that seminar, many changes have been introduced to the regulatory framework on a legislative level and new decisions have been rendered by the courts. Further, the European Commission has recently set the path towards a single European Communications Market and there is a clear tendency towards less but larger providers of a wide range of communications services in the markets. Last but not least substantial progress has been made on a technological level (quadruple play, location based services, HSDPA, mobile and Internet TV etc.) and Bulgaria and Romania have joined the EU as new member states. All these events have a substantial impact on the international communication landscape. The purpose of this seminar is to update you on changes in the legal framework and recent developments in the communication markets with a special focus on the European Union. The topics will be presented by outstanding speakers from regulatory authorities and telecom providers and by experienced legal practitioners. The seminar will also provide a platform for discussion between panelists and participants. Please note that Credits for Continuing Professional Development are available. The seminar will be held at the law offi ces of Dorda Brugger Jordis in the heart of Vienna. The seminar hotel will be the 4* Hotel Mercure which is close to the seminar venue. The seminar will commence on Thursday evening with the traditional Welcome Cocktail. The sessions will commence on Friday morning and will conclude on Saturday noon. On Friday evening, a dinner will be organized at one of the famous “Heurigen” restaurants of Vienna. For those staying over the weekend in Vienna, a fancy location for the Saturday evening dinner will be provided. Join us for an exciting weekend in Vienna and get first hand information from regulator telecom industry representatives and lawyers on the hot topics in communications law. See you in Vienna !
