SIArb Commercial Arbitration Symposium 2018 (15 November 2018, 11:30am – 8:00pm, Orchid Ballroom, 6 Eu Tong Sen Street, #04-85, The Central (Clarke Quay), Singapore 059817)
2018 marks the tenth time that SIArb’s Arbitration Bar Committee has convened the Commercial Arbitration Symposium. Always popular, the Symposium provides a distinctive and interactive forum for participants to discuss current issues and developments in the field of commercial arbitration.
The Symposium features no set speakers or speeches. The success of the Symposium is based on the free-flowing discussion of current issues, suggested by delegates. Delegates whose topics are chosen will be invited to introduce their questions or topics, which will then be followed by an open discussion under the moderation of the experienced co-chairs.
Each delegate is therefore invited to contribute upon registering at least 3 questions or topics for discussion. There is no limit to the number of topics that each delegate may contribute, and additional questions may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The topics will be grouped into themes and allocated to one of the three working sessions, but the titles of the sessions are not prescriptive; participants are encouraged to present questions on any matter relevant to the practice of commercial arbitration.
We return again to the Old Parliament House, with the working sessions of the Symposium held in the atmospheric surroundings of the former parliamentary debating chamber. To maintain the efficiency of the format, there are limited places available, so please register your interest early to save a seat.
