International Containerboard Conference
November 4-6, 2020
Embassy Suites Chicago Downtown Magnificent Mile | Chicago, USA
RISI is committed to compliance with all relevant state and federal antitrust laws that prohibit improper conduct that affects competition, including communication among industry participants concerning competitively sensitive information such as prices, input costs, and production capacity.
As part of RISI’s commitment to antitrust compliance, RISI has retained K&L Gates to attend the conference program and to review and approve all conference materials and presentations. In addition, counsel will speak briefly before each program commences to remind participants and speakers of RISI’s antitrust guidelines and how the antitrust laws apply to industry association activities.
Please feel free to contact Lauren Donahue onsite or at Lauren.Donahue@klgates.com with any questions or concerns you may have regarding antitrust compliance before or during the conference.
The avoidance of collusive practices by members of a trade or industry, which affect prices, fees, or the ability of others to compete is a major goal of the antitrust laws. This requires that particular attention be paid to activities at RISI Conferences so that anticompetitive effects do not result. A summary of some of the aspects of antitrust compliance follows:
Therefore, it is prudent and, in fact, essential to avoid discussions or activities from which unlawful action could be inferred by the enforcement agencies. Any such activity could subject attending companies to costly and highly prejudicial antitrust attack.
If at any time during the course of the conference you as an individual feel that the discussion borders on possible violation of antitrust compliance, you should indicate to the chair that you object. If the discussion continues, you should remove yourself from the situation after requesting that written record of your objection be made.
