Event Programme

Are you interested in learning about the latest developments and trends in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in the Asia region? Do you want to network with leading experts and practitioners in the field of arbitration? If so, you should not miss Vietnam ADRs Week 2023 (VAW 2023), a five-day event that will take place from May 8 to May 12 in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. 

“Adapting to a vibrant Asia” is a key theme throughout the event program, as we recognize the importance of keeping pace with the rapidly-changing ADR landscape in the region. With Asia being one of the fastest-growing regions in the world, it is important for ADR practitioners to adapt to the unique challenges and opportunities presented by this dynamic and diverse region. As such, we have designed a comprehensive event program that focuses on the latest trends and developments in ADR in Asia, and provides practical knowledge and best practices for adapting to this dynamic landscape. 

Our five-day event program features a diverse range of topics related to alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in the Asia region. The event’s speakers and panelists will explore the latest developments, trends, and challenges in the field of arbitration, which aims to provide a platform for dialogue and exchange among arbitration professionals, academics, policymakers, lawyers and people interested in the trending and development of the ADR across Asia and the globe. 

We invite you to join us at Vietnam ADRs Week 2023 and take advantage of this unique opportunity to engage with leading experts in the field of alternative dispute resolution. This event promises to offer valuable insights, networking opportunities, and practical knowledge that you can apply to your work.  

We look forward to welcoming you to Vietnam ADRs Week 2023!
