How to Effectively Manage Arbitration: Modern and Innovative Approaches to Case Management



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.

Target Group:

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.
