Prague Arbitration Day 2020 - postponed until autumn 2020
Prague Arbitation Day 2020 - Conference date is postponed.
On behalf of the National Committee of the ICC in the Czech Republic and the ICC International Court of Arbitration we regrettably have to inform you that the Prague Arbitration Day 2020 scheduled for 19 March 2020 has been postponed until autumn 2020.
The organizers highly value the safety of all participants in the PAD 2020 and acknowledges that because of the current situation surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), the conference, as a public event, may not potentially provide the best environment for its participants. The ICC Czech Republic is also concerned that some participants may experience difficulty travelling to the Czech Republic due to the various restrictions imposed.
In the light of the above, upon thorough consideration and in line with the best practices advised by the WHO, the organizers have decided to follow other organizers of public conferences and to postpone the PAD 2020 to a later date in autumn 2020. However sad, we strongly believe that it is the right decision and hope for your understanding. We apologize though for any inconvenience caused.
We would like to reassure you that your registration remains valid as well as the registration fees paid. We would appreciate it if we could regard your registration as confirmed until the new date is announced. Any conflicting issues will be dealt accordingly as they arise.
We will be working to finalize the details and will share updated information regarding the PAD 2020 in March/April. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or require further information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to welcoming you at the Prague Arbitration Day 2020 in the autumn.
Prague Arbitration Day 2020
How to Effectively Manage Arbitration: Modern and Innovative Approaches to Case Managemen
ICC Prague Arbitration Day 2020 is a unique one-day conference organised in the heart of Central & Eastern Europe that focuses on topical issues in arbitration. The event builds on previous successful conferences in 2019 and 2018, each having hosted over 100 attendees from dozens of countries.
The event is again co-organized by the ICC Czech Republic and the ICC International Court of Arbitration, with a representative of the ICC Court´s management as a keynote speaker.
An audience not only from the CEE region but from the rest of Europe as well, with a special focus on in-house counsel, as well as lawyers (legal counsel), arbitrators, and representatives of national and international chambers (banking, insurance, etc.).
Great opportunity to share experience and trends in international commercial arbitration among professionals from the CEE region and to establish a wide platform for networking.
