Dear Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

- a list of participants at the European Commission's High-level Conference 'Collaborative economy: opportunities, challenges, policies' on the 11 October 2018, in Brussels.

Please note, I am primarily interested in the organisational affiliation of participants, so if it will expedite my request, I am happy to receive a participants list which has had personal names expunged, but leaves information on the organisation represented.

Yours faithfully,

Rachel Tansey
