The Australian Centre of International Commercial Arbitration (ACICA) and the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators Australia (CIArb Australia) will be holding the 2019 International Arbitration Conference in Brisbane on 18 November 2019. The theme of the Conference is ‘Building Bridges: Resolving Disputes through International Arbitration.’
As international arbitration remains the preferred means for commercial and state entities to resolve disputes in the global economy, building bridges, and not walls, is key to maintaining good relationships to ensure growth, competitiveness and new opportunities.
This one-day conference is Australia’s premier international arbitration event and will launch the 2019 Australian Arbitration Week. Supported by global institutes, government, industry associations, sponsors and media partners, it will bring together eminent jurists including the Honourable Justice Patrick Keane AC, High Court of Australia, who will deliver the keynote address, and expert practitioners from five continents and 15 jurisdictions who will impart their knowledge and experiences in examining emerging trends in various key sectors.
A cocktail networking reception will follow proceedings featuring guest speaker, the Honourable Yvette D’Ath, Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Queensland Government.
Full details of the Conference, including the program and registration, are available on the Conference website. Early-bird registration is available until 18 October 2019 and all registrations close on 13 November 2019.
The International Law Association (Australian Branch) is a supporting organisation for the 2019 Conference.
