The SIAC Congress 2016 will be held on 27 May 2016 at the St. Regis Hotel. This will be a special event as we will be celebrating our Silver Jubilee this year, and the Congress will coincide with the global launch of our new SIAC Arbitration Rules. Following the Congress will be a Gala Dinner, which will be a charity event in support of the Community Justice Centre (

The Congress programme will focus on the new provisions to be included in the revised Arbitration Rules, such as procedures for investment arbitration, joinder, consolidation and multiple contracts, as well as revisions to our existing Emergency Arbitrator and Expedited Procedure provisions. Our line-up of eminent panellists will include distinguished members of the SIAC Court of Arbitration, other leading arbitration practitioners and senior in-house counsel, who will share their collective insights and views on current hot topics, recent global trends and developments and what lies ahead in the complex world of multi-jurisdictional disputes. The Congress will be a landmark event for practitioners and in-house counsel alike, as it will provide them with the unique opportunity to be the first to learn about the new SIAC Rules which will be unveiled at the Congress.
