INSOL Europe 8th Annual Conference

The 8th Annual Conference of INSOL Europe’s Eastern European Countries Committee will be held on 24–26 May 2012 at the IBB Andersia Hotel in Poznań. The theme of this year’s conference is “Companies, Creditors and Collateral in Crisis.”

The theme of the event was largely inspired by the current crisis in the eurozone. Participants will discuss the political and social consequences of the current situation, including:

  • the effect of austerity programs on Central & Eastern Europe
  • possible market scenarios
  • bank lending for investment purposes.

The conference will open with a panel discussion devoted to Polish bankruptcy and restructuring legislation.

The organizers have scheduled separate panel discussions devoted to the financial aspects of projects carried out under the public-private partnership approach, as well as cross-order insolvency and restructuring.
