A BUSINESS CONFERENCE

WARSAW ARBITRATION & MEDIATION DAYS

May 23rd – 25th 2018

Warsaw, Poland

Conference will be held in Polish and English with simultaneous translation.

Disputes are unavoidable in business. This applies also to the dynamically developing economies of Central and Eastern Europe, including Poland. Alternative Dispute Resolution methods (ADR) are a modern and efficient approach to resolving such commercial disputes. Warsaw Arbitration and Mediation Days (WAMD) is a joint event of all major Polish arbitration institutions ICC and ICC Poland focused on the wider business public as well as the arbitration and mediation community of the CEE countries.

WAMD is designed  to showcase practical applications of ADR in business for those with  limited exposure to the topic and as a platform to exchange experiences with more seasoned users of ADR. As business is increasingly international, WAMD  has a unique regional dimension with outstanding international arbitrators in particular from Central and Eastern Europe attending. We hope you can join us for this unique event.
