    EECC Conference 2017 - Budapest, Hungary

    EECC Conference 2017 - Budapest, Hungary

    Date
    11-05-2017 to 12-05-2017
    Location
    Budapest, Hungary
    One-day conference on Friday 12 May 2017 with an optional dinner on 11 May.
    Places now extremely limited.  Online registration is now no longer possible.  To enquire about availability, please contact Wendy Cooper directly at wendycooper@insol-europe.org


    We are delighted to invite you to Budapest, Hungary, for the Eastern European Countries’ Committee Conference on: “Winding up of (assetless) companies in Central-Eastern Europe – The reality show”. Budapest will host this event from 11-12 of May 2017. 

    Cited as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Budapest's extensive World Heritage Site includes the banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter, Andrássy Avenue, Heroes' Square and the Millennium Underground Railway, the second-oldest metro line in the world. Budapest has around 80 geothermal springs, the world's largest thermal water cave system, second largest synagogue and third largest Parliament building. The city attracts about 4.4 million tourists a year, making it the 25th most popular city in the world, and the 6th in Europe.

    Budapest is considered a financial hub in Central Europe. Where else, then, to hold INSOL Europe's annual Eastern Europe conference to discuss the actual developments in the insolvency landscape and to emphasize the developments in Eastern Europe? More and more insolvency professionals are being confronted with assetless companies. What to do when a company does not seem to have any assets but still has some debts? How do the different jurisdictions deal with such situations?

    At the conference, representatives of the Hungarian Ministry of Justice and Economy and the Ministry of National Development will be  present. Practical solutions of how to sell assets and how to develop the education of insolvency practitioners are topics that will help improve the capabilities of the profession. Finally, on 22 November 2016, the European Commission published a proposal for a directive. What will that mean for practitioners and governments across Europe? The landscape will change, that's for sure!

    All in all, attending our conference presents a valuable experience and an excellent opportunity to meet the profession’s experts and learn about the latest trends in insolvency. The conference will be preceded by an optional networking dinner in downtown Buda or Pest, during which the guests can have a taste of both Hungary’s culinary traditions and folk music and dance.

    We hope you will enjoy our conference in Budapest, as well as the town and its surroundings.

    Joint 6th European Insolvency & Restructuring Congress

    Joint 6th European Insolvency & Restructuring Congress

    Date
    29-06-2017 to 30-06-2017
    Location
    Stanhope Hotel, Brussels, Belgium

    In cooperation between Deutscher Anwaltverein (German Bar Association) and INSOL Europe

    The German Bar Association's (DAV) Section on lnsolvency Law and Restructuring is pleased to announce its 6th European lnsolvency Law and Restructuring Congress (EIRC) in Brussels from 29 to 30 June 2017, jointly organized with INSOL Europe.
     
    This is the sixth conference of its kind and the fourth one hosted by two European organizations for insolvency professionals. The success of the past EIRCs jointly organized with Dutch, French and Spanish partners has encouraged the organizers to share this format each time with another European peer organization.
     
    The EIRC offers again a unique forum for insolvency and restructuring experts to discuss issues concerning national and cross border insolvency and restructuring proceedings, this time in the light of the new draft directive of pre-insolvency restructuring and the Brexit.
     
    We have developed a program including high-profile speakers such as Ms. Vera Jourová (European Commissioner for Justice, Consumer Protection and Gender Equality) and Günther Oettinger (Commissioner for Budget and Human Resources, Brussels). The speakers and the audience will discuss, in panels and workshops, hot topics such as the impact of the new draft regulation on non-performing loans, on banks and the industry and on the whole profession of restructuring and insolvency professionals as well.
     
    With the new European Insolvency Regulation entering into force in July 2017, another focus lies on the topic of secondary proceedings. Here, a dedicated workshop will show the chances and risks of virtual secondary proceedings under the recast EIR for practitioners. The Friday sessions will focus on recent ECJ decisions and other landmark judgements that every professional doing cross-border work needs to know and will round up with an outlook on how restructuring will be influenced by Brexit.
     
    The EIRC will enable delegates to get in direct touch with and to be heard by European lawmakers and to learn about the latest developments from experts involved in the reforms and landmark cases having significant impact on the future of our profession.

    INSOL Europe Annual Congress - Warsaw

    INSOL Europe Annual Congress - Warsaw

    Date
    05-10-2017 to 08-10-2017
    Location
    Warsaw, Poland

    Preventive Restructuring: Sunset on Insolvency?
    In September 2017, the INSOL Europe Annual Congress will be held in Warsaw, Poland, a thriving and fast-developing metropolis of 1.7 million inhabitants which boasts a wealth of history and culture, as well as intense commercial and political activity.

    Focus this year will be on “Preventive Restructuring: Sunset on Insolvency?”, one of the most burning issues of our time. Indeed, a Proposal for a Directive on preventive restructuring frameworks, second chance and measures to increase the efficiency of restructuring, insolvency and discharge procedures and amending Directive 2012/30/EU was published on 22 November 2016 by the EU Commission. INSOL Europe has taken up the role as torchbearer in this field since 2010. 

    Against this background we will discuss the practical implications of this preventive restructuring directive, the challenges in the businesses of today and also provide real life examples of innovative and creative approaches in distressed situations. Of course, the first applications of the new regulation which will have come into force and the question of group insolvencies and insolvency registers will be discussed, not forgetting the implications of Brexit for insolvency and restructuring.
