  • TORONTO Event Introduction
    Annually since 2013, the Beijing Arbitration Commission/Beijing International Arbitration Center (BAC/BIAC) has launched the Annual Review and Preview on Commercial Dispute Resolution in China and organized correlated annual roadshows. Previous successful roadshows in Europe and the UK, which gathered influential practitioners and generated many thoughtful ideas, are encouraging. Stepping into 2019, BAC/BIAC decided to move to North America, specifically to New York, Toronto, and San Francisco, to strengthen the ties between dispute resolution communities in China and North America. Prestigious speakers from China, Canada and United States will share their insight on the new trends and challenges in a wide range of fields of commercial dispute resolution in China, including commercial arbitration, commercial mediation, construction, energy, investment, finance, intellectual property and entertainment. BAC/BIAC now opens the registration for this long expected summit and sincerely invites your participation.
