Praxisworkshop Flughäfen 2019

Der Luftverkehr wächst weiter. Auch die deutschen Flughäfen konnten das Passagieraufkommen steigern, lagen jedoch im Jahr 2018 unter dem weltweiten Durchschnitt. Fortgesetzt hat sich auch die Konsolidierung unter den Fluggesellschaften. All dies stellt die Flughafenbetreiber auch künftig vor neue Herausforderungen. Unser Kompetenzteam Flughäfen hat aktuelle rechtliche Entwicklungen für Sie beobachtet und aufbereitet. Wir starten mit einem Praxisbericht unserer Gastgeber zu deren Joint Venture und beschäftigen uns im Anschluss noch einmal aus neuer Perspektive mit den Auswirkungen des neuen BGB-Werkvertragsrechts, in diesem Fall auf die Vertragsgestaltung bei Großprojekten im Flughafensektor. Zudem entscheidet der EuGH am 04.07.2019 über die Vereinbarkeit des Preisrechts der HOAI mit dem EU-Recht und wir informieren Sie über das Ergebnis und die Auswirkungen der Entscheidung. Weiter berichten wir über Konzessionsvergaben nach der BADV und beleuchten im Anschluss Schwierigkeiten beim Ground Handling und mögliche Sanktionen. Abgerundet wird das Programm durch einen Ausflug in die Versicherung von Bauvorhaben und deren Fallstricke.

Das Programm und ein Anmeldeformular finden Sie hier. 

Die Anmeldefrist endet am 03.09.2019.
