The Swiss Arbitration Association (ASA), in collaboration with the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) is organising the first Asia edition of the ASA Arbitration Practice Seminar from 24-26 May 2019 in Da Nang, Vietnam. This retreat style conference has been successfully held in Europe for over 20 years, bringing together experienced arbitration practitioners to contribute to the debates, and to build on their own knowledge of international arbitration.
During the course of two days, sessions will be led jointly by two discussion leaders, one with a common law background and the other with a civil law background, and participants will be invited to share experiences, questions and ideas in lively debates. Discussions can continue over luncheons, at cocktail receptions and at dinners all of which are included as part of the conference experience.
Who should attend?
The seminar is designed for those - arbitrators, counsel, in-house lawyers, experts - who wish to continue building on their international arbitration knowledge and practice and to benefit from the discussion leaders' combined experience and expertise.
