Last week, May 30- June 2 2017, Business BVI convened the second BVI International Arbitration Conference in collaboration with the BVI International Arbitration Centre.
120 attendees enjoyed a range of events during the week long conference, from evening lectures, such as the Dr. JS Archibald, QC Memorial Lecture, (sponsored by the BVI Bar Association) delivered by Mr. John Beechey CBE, Chairman of the Board, BVI International Arbitration Centre; to mock arbitration proceedings, training workshops, panel discussions and networking events.
As the Rt. Hon. Sir Charles Michael Dennis Byron, President of the Caribbean Court of Justice, said in his keynote address, "The conference has achieved an important goal, by bringing the Caribbean and professional business together to support this establishment and launching of this Centre."
Business BVI would like to thank all our sponsors who made the conference possible, our Silver sponsor Conyers Dill & Pearman, Bronze sponsor 4 New Square, Reception sponsors BVI International Arbitration Centre and BVI Bar Association, supporting sponsors SimonetteLewis and Harneys.
More on the conference, including video highlights, will be published over the coming weeks.
