Hong Kong Arbitration Week 28 October - 2 November 2018

Coming into its 7th Year, Hong Kong Arbitration Week has taken its place in the global calendar of "Must Attend Events" for arbitration practitioners in Asia and worldwide.

The Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre established the Hong Kong Arbitration Week to celebrate the triumphs and challenges of international arbitration while actively promoting the development of the practice in Asia. Following the dramatic economic growth across many parts of the region, the call for international arbitration has become significantly louder in recent years. Through conferences, luncheons and evening receptions, Hong Kong Arbitration Week seeks to provide a multitude of forums in which users and practitioners can come together to exchange ideas on how best to manage this increased demand for arbitration services. The Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre hopes to raise awareness of the latest trends in the field as it welcomes members of the global arbitration community to Hong Kong.

The Annual Hong Kong Arbitration Week will be held from 28 October to 2 November 2018.
